Snickers Caramel Apple Dip

30 Dec

I wish my picture did this dessert better service. I had to make do with the remnants of the bottom of the bowl because it got eaten so fast. Remnants don’t ever make for wonderful pictures, but they do say a lot about how well people like your dish! So, I’ll count the fact that I didn’t have much to work with, a definite win. Make this. Hide in a closet. Don’t share. 🙂

Ingredients:

6 regular sized Snickers candy bars

4 medium apples (I suggest a crispy, more tart apple – I used Granny Smith)

1 (5.1 oz) pkg vanilla instant pudding mix

1/2 cup milk

1 (16 oz) tub of cool whip, thawed to room temperature

1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping

Whisk pudding packet, 1/2 cup milk, and cool whip together until well combined. Chop up apples and Snickers into bite size pieces, and combine with pudding mixture. Place in large serving bowl, and drizzle with caramel topping. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

 

 

Apple Crisp

6 Jul

I am so behind on posting, these days. I’m in a production of Les Miserables this summer, so I’m not cooking new things as frequently (it’s a good thing my kids never get sick of mac and cheese), and when I do, I let them sit forever in my draft box because I can’t manage to upload the picture and write down the recipe in one sitting. So today I’m playing catch up! Hopefully I’ll get to the point that I can post more than one recipe a month. 🙂

This Apple Crisp is another one from my ‘there’s no way you can mess this up’ recipe collection. I like it because there is a single serving version, as well as a feed-the-crowd version.

2-3 drops lemon juice

1 Tbsp sugar

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Crumb Topping

2 Tbsp flour

1 Tbsp softened butter

Peel and core apple and cut into 1/4″ slices. Place in 4″ round casserole dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Combine sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Add to apples and toss to coat. Combine dry ingredients for crumb topping. Cut in butter with a fork until the mixture is crumbly.
