So in a few short weeks we are going to have a bunch of candy in the house. And while my kids are in their teens, I still try to get them to eat more fruit…hello, grab that apple instead of that handful of chocolate…PLEASE? Yeah right. It’s not happening. So, I decided why not put the candy with the fruit, then they have to eat them both?! I mean, they are going to eat the candy anyway, might as well get some fruit in there with it, right??

The beauty of this “salad” is that you can put in just about any fruit you have on hand…Pears would be a lovely addition, those little mandarins, even pineapple…whatever you got and you want the kids to eat…put it in there! Because, let’s be honest just about every fruit I can think of pairs perfectly with chocolate.

You have the added nutrients from the fruit, then you are making this candy bar salad with milk, so you are also getting vitamins and nutrients from milk. Look at that…this may become my new favorite salad ๐Ÿ˜‰

Normally I would have used Sugar Free pudding mix when making something sweet, because honestly I can’t usually tell the difference, but I went to two stores and they were both out, so regular won. Next time I make it, I will use the sugar free option…and if you use sugar free to make this leftover Halloween candy apple salad, let me know which brand you use and how it was! My friend said she saw some at Aldi the other day, so I’ll grab some the next time I’m there.
