Allie Pleiter's Favorite Recipe

November 1 is a different kind of holiday at my house.  For almost fifteen years, November 1 has been "Snickers Bar Salad Day."  Quite frankly, it's the breakfast of choice for me on that particular day.  I thought I'd share it with you:

Snickers Bar Salad
6 bite-sized Snickers bars, chopped into small bits (more are permissible if it's been a bad week or PMS is involved!!)
3 Granny Smith Apples, diced
one 5-oz package vanilla instant pudding mix
8 oz cool whip
1 c. milk
In a bowl, mix pudding mix and milk. Fold in Cool Whip. Mix in apples and Snickers Bars. Cool and enjoy.

Lots of people have "extra" fun-sized Snickers bars hanging around this time of year, so this is the perfect way to use them up.

My hero and heroine Jesse and Charlotte have some wonderfully romantic food scenes in my current book SAVED BY THE FIREMAN.  Don't you want to know why Charlotte changes her mind to view Brussels Srouts as "the chocolate cake of vegetables"?  Chapter 10 will give you all the juicy details (pun intended!).

What about you?  What's your favorite indulgent breakfast?

My favorite morning snack is Quick mix chocolate flavor! So very good! That snicker mix sounds very yummy. The salad part of the name makes me think of the green leafy version. :)

A friend of mine brought some cinnamon chip scones to a potluck brunch recently, and they were delicious. I got her recipe, and Gwynly made a batch for me. I enjoyed several indulgent breakfasts featuring this new favorite treat. Yum!
