Snickers Apple Salad

Chop 12oz - 24oz  Snickers bars into bite sized pieces.  (I love Snickers so I use closer to 24 oz) Put in freezer to harden.

Chop 6 Granny Smith Apples into bite sized pieces & coat with a little lemon juice (to prevent browning)

In a large bowl, mix together:
1 box instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup of milk

Fold in:
1 tub of Cool Whip (8oz)

Then fold in:
Chopped up Snickers (They do not need to be completely frozen, just cold so they do not fall apart while you mix them in)

Then fold in:
Chopped up Apples.

Drizzle Mrs. Richardson's Butterscotch Caramel over the top.

*Look for Mrs.Richardson's Butterscotch Caramel with the ice cream toppings at your grocery store. If you can't find Mrs. Richardson's Butterscotch Caramel find a place to order it online.  It is that good. You could try using another brand but you would be missing out.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

4-5 pounds of Strawberries
12 oz white chocolate
2 packages of cream cheese (8oz each)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 - 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup Graham Cracker crumbs

Let cream cheese come to room temperature.

Rinse the strawberries.  Cut off the top of each strawberry & hollow it out slightly with a paring knife.

Melt white chocolate in a double boiler.  Let cool to almost room temperature but do not let it set up or harden.  Heat the cream cheese so it is just slightly warmer than the white chocolate [You don't really want them warm but if the cream cheese is even the slightest bit cooler that the white chocolate the white chocolate will harden and not mix in.] 

Beat with an electric mixer until creamy. 

Add vanilla and powdered sugar & beat till smooth. 

Put mixture in a zip lock bag & snip a tiny bit of the bottom corner off. (Make shift piping bag!)

Use the zip lock bag to squeeze the filling into each strawberry.  After the strawberry is full, dip the exposed cheesecake mixture in graham cracker crumbs.

Try not to eat the whole batch in one sitting.
