Easter Snickers Fruit Salad

mini snicks!

I inherited a love of Snickers from my Mother. My Mom, a nutritionist, of all people!! It’s sort-of a family tradition to freeze all candy, so she has always placed the little fun-sized treats on the freezer door. Naturally, I’ve become HOOKED on doing the same thing. My 85 year old Nana does this too…and that‘s right where all the grandchildren head when we visit her!

Have you ever had a frozen snickers? They’re unreal! It’s like eating a caramel filled with peanuts, but it’s easier to chew! They.are.addicting. Needless to say, I try not to buy them for myself too often, because living alone and buying bags of fun-size candy=disaster. For this recipe though, I made an exception. The addition of Snickers to this fruit salad is unreal. Fruit+chocolate=winner. Trust me!
