I’ve been meaning to redo the post on Cheesecake Salad because even I can see the pictures are too dark. They don’t do justice to a very delicious dessert! And unfortunately the recipe is one of the top posts and gets a lot of hits on my blog. Every time I see that on my list of Top Posts I wince and promise to redo that soon.
Well this was the day. I had run across an idea for a snickers cheesecake salad that had apples, and not being a huge apple fan I was going to use strawberries instead. I picked up a pint of shiny red strawberries, a bag of miniature Snickers candy bars, and had the rest of the ingredients for the salad in my kitchen.
In a large bowl I mixed the small box of cheesecake pudding with the Cool Whip and 2 cartons of strawberry yogurt.
I diced 10-12 small Snickers bars and added them to the bowl.
I washed and sliced the pint of strawberries and added them to bowl. I folded in the bars and strawberries and after putting a cover on the bowl refrigerated it a couple of hours until dinner.
After dinner we had bowls of our pretty cheesecake salad and afterwards I photographed it over and over again. I was going to make sure the new pictures were just as tasty spoonfuls we’d devoured!
Strawberry Snickers Cheesecake Salad
1 small box instant cheesecake pudding mix; dry

1 pint strawberries; washed and sliced
10-12 miniature Snickers bars (or more or less to taste)
Stir together pudding mix, whipped topping and yogurt in a large bowl.
Add candy bar pieces and strawberry slices and fold in.
Cover and refrigerate until served. Best served within 2-3 hours.
