snickers salad

If you've never heard of snickers salad, you are in for a TREAT.

This is a midwest staple and seen at, basically, all events. You don't go to Thanksgiving, Christmas, tailgate, etc., without someone bringing snickers salad. 

This recipe comes from Sarah's grandma. We've been making her recipe since we were freshman in high school throwing our first friendsgiving. It is the best and one of the first things gone!!

Some people do add extras into their snicker salad. I know Ben's family also adds bananas. I've heard of other families adding caramel sauce. I personally like it just like this recipe calls but whatever you add in, I know you're going to love it.
