This Reese’s apple salad is just like Snickers salad but for peanut butter cup lovers. Same base, but with more peanut butter flavor.
Nothing like coming home from a tropical vacation to a cold rainy weekend. But seriously, as much as I wanted to stay in Belize longer, I am glad to have a weekend to recover before going back to the grind. Especially when tonight is the Ohio State vs Penn State game!
We are watching from the comfort of our couch today, staying warm and dry. Part of me always wants to be at the game but I am also plan to not leave the house until Monday morning for work if I don’t have to. Weekend goals right here.
Thankfully, I had purchased the items to make this Reese’s apple salad prior to our departure for Belize. You know Snickers apple salad? Well make it with Reese’s cups instead and you get this delicious treat. It’s also a great way to use up leftover Halloween candy.
Even though Halloween is tomorrow, trick-or-treat was on Thursday for our neighborhood so we missed it. Which means we have more than enough Reese’s peanut butter cups to go around. Why not stir them in with some tart green apples and creamy vanilla pudding?
