Mary Anne's Snicker Bar Apple Dessert Salad

      Not sure what to do with all those leftover Halloween Snicker bars you have on hand? I know that's really not a problem in some homes like ours, however, here's a delicious way to use some of them up.

      1 1/2 cups milk

      1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla or white chocolate pudding

      1 (8-ounce) tub frozen whipped topping (Cool Whip), thawed

      4 large apples, cored, peeled, diced

      4 Snicker bars (2.07 ounces or the equivalent of 8 ounces) sliced into 1/2-inch pieces

      1 pint strawberries, washed and sliced

      1 small can pineapple chunks, drained really well

      1 small can Mandarin oranges, drained really well

      1/2 cup toasted pecans

      • In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-
        set. Fold in whipped topping. Fold in apples, candy bars, strawberries, pineapple chunks and Mandarin oranges. Place in large serving bowl, wine glasses or dessert cups/bowls. Top with toasted pecans. Refrigerate until serving. Makes 6-12 servings depending on size of dish used.

      Note: This dessert salad is better made the day that you are going to serve it.

      Note: Sliced bananas or halved grapes works great if you like.
