HAPPY 45TH ANNIVERSARY TO MY PRECIOUS HUSBAND!
It's hard to imagine I could love him more than the day I married him, but our
love has grown and grown. Life has brought many changes, but one
thing hasn't ever changed and I will be forever grateful....
Our Love remains constant and strong and I am blessed to be called
MRS. RONALD BAKER.
MUAH! to my Sugarbear.
Because my Sweetie is diabetic, I'm honoring him with this Sugar Free dish today!
And these are the bacon roses I made for him...recipe forthcoming...=)
I was excited to find this recipe linked up at Weekend Potluck a few months ago from Everyday Mom's Meals. Krista is a no nonsense woman in the kitchen and I always love the simplicity and goodness of her easy recipes. I make many of them because they are simple and delicious..and deliciously simple. Please stop over and check out her yummy dishes...and please tell her hello from me.
I have made a similar recipe to this one, but haven't added the candy before. This time I used sugar free butterscotch pudding and sugar free peanut butter cups. It was more like a caramel apple salad with sf chocolate! I adapted this to suit our taste buds. I'm always happy when I can make something sugar free and no one else has a clue that it is!
This quick-to-make salad is great as a side dish or even dessert.
CANDY BAR *CARAMEL* APPLE SALAD
1 (.3 ozs) box (sugar free) french vanilla instant pudding
(Or use butterscotch for more of a caramel flavor)
3/4 c. milk
1-1/2 c. whipped topping

(leave peel on for more nutrition)
2 Snickers candy bars, chopped
(or a sm. bag of sugar free peanut butter cups)
1/2 c. (unsweetened) coconut
1 small chocolate bar, optional
In a large bowl, combine pudding mix and milk. Whisk for 2 minutes, then let stand for 2 minutes until soft set. Fold in whipped topping, stirring well to combine. Add apples and most of the chopped candy;blend until mixed evenly. Add coconut. Grate remaining chocolate over top to garnish. Chill until ready to serve.
