Vic and anyone else interested in trying the Snickers salad, here it is:

Snickers Apple Salad

1 1/2 cups 2% milk
1 pkg. (3-4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 carton (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping
4 large apples, chopped (about 6 cups)
4 Snickers candy bars (2.07 oz. size), cut into 1/2-inch pieces

In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes
or until soft-set. Fold in whipped topping. Fold in apples and candy bar pieces. Refrigerate until serving. Yields 12 servings of 3/4 cup each.

Well now there's a combination I never would have thought of. And I assume you tried this, Larry?

Here's the Cranberry Apple Casserole.

Cranberry Apple Casserole
3 or 4 unpeeled, chopped apples
2 cans whole cranberry sauce
2 tbsp. plain flour
1 cup oatmeal
½ cup sugar
1 cup pecans, (chopped)
½ cup plain flour
½ cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
½ cup melted butter

Combine apples, cranberry sauce, and 2 tbsp. flour, tossing to coat fruit. Add ½ cup sugar, mixing well. Place in 2 quart casserole or 13 X 9 dish.
Combine oatmeal and nuts, ½ cup flour, and brown sugar. Add butter and stir well. Spoon over fruit mixture. Bake uncovered, in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.

I used Smart Balance today instead of butter. I put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds just to soften it so I could work with it. I didn't melt it.

Arlene, I wish I had seen your recipe for Cranberry Nut Swirls! I love anything with cranberries. That looks delicious! I'll be trying that for sure!

My Mother made this special pudding every Christmas. Lovey dubby

Mom's Holiday Carrot Pudding

2 cups grated carrots
1 cup of suet
1 cup raisins
1 cup glace cherries
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups all purpose flour, sifted
1 tsp baking soda
1tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp each, nutmeg & cloves
pinch of salt

In a large bowl combine carrots, suet, raisins and fruit. Stir in sugar and molasses.Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Beat into bowl well with wooden spoon until moistened, it will appear crumbly at first. Spoon into a greased Crisco tin and steam 2 & 1/2 hours. Cover top of can with fine mesh cloth,( I presume she meant cheese cloth) to prevent water from dripping onto the top of the pudding.

Serve with brown sugar and lemon sauce, or caramel or rum sauce.

My sister has made it using margarine, if I made it it would be with butter. Big Grin I don't know if you can find Crisco in cans anymore. Shrug!

I didn't use to like carrots either Sharon, but I did like this pudding because you really couldn't taste them. Hurray!

Thanks for posting that. I was also thinking to use butter instead of lard. Margarine has water in it. Back when I still used margarine (because it was cheap), I used to wonder why my popcorn was soggy. And then I got into reading labels, oh my, what an eye opener that is!

I think once we've grown up with real straight from the cow butter, nothing else can replace it. Ol' Pied was a great giver of butter. Big Yellow Grin

Ditto on cranberries Susan and I will be trying the cranberry apple salad too!

Margaret, is there something to substitute for suet in the carrot recipe? I guess you can buy suet in the store?

I've seen suet for sale in grocery stores. A lot of women insist on it for pie crusts. Ask in the meat department.

Arlene, check the freezers in the meat department at the grocery if you want the suet or ask the butcher. You could use butter, won't be quite the same but will still be delicious. Sticking tongue out

and the beloved Winston the pug
"Slutty Brownies"
They earned the name because they are "so easy." These were popular at a recent holiday party (more popular than my wonderful lemon cheesecake - go figure).

Prepare an 11" x 17" pan and preheat the oven to 350'F

Layer 1: A tube of cookie dough, the large size for 24 cookies
Layer 2: A dozen oreos, evenly spaced on top of dough
Layer 3: Brownie mix prepared as per instructions.

Press the cookie mix into the pan. Place oreos on top of cookie mix. cover with brownie mix. Spread gently and evenly. Bake until nearly done - about 2 minutes from done according to the "expert"

Layer 4: Place 12 marshmallows on top, each over the location of an oreo..

Bake a minute or two until marshmallows melt and puff. Allow to cool.

Layer 5: Spread a can of prepared frosting on top of the brownies.

I haven't made these. I typically make everything from scratch. I thought the recipe may appeal to people who like brownies and oreos.
