A Sugar Shun to Snicker at

Snickers is my favorite candy bar.  It’s very good frozen or fresh.  Since I’m THINKING ABOUT DECIDING to go back on my Sugar Shun I’m reading a lot about sugar in preparation.
I found  a  recipe that meets my criteria for 4 ingredients or less from http://www.food.com/recipe/snickers-dip-the-secret-is-out-481616
(I have slightly altered the directions to make it more practical and tastier. )1920px-Snickers-broken
Snickers Party Dip
  • 16 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar 
  • ounces Cool Whip 
  • 10 regular sized Snickers candy bars, chop 6 of the bars into small chunks
  • lb small pretzels, for dipping (or large slotted spoon)

Directions:

  1. soften cream cheese.
  2. (eat one of the snickers bars to make sure they are fresh)
  3. cream the cream cheese until fluffy.
  4. (eat one of the snickers bars to renew your energy from all the creaming)
  5. add brown sugar and cream cheese until well blended.
  6. (eat one of the snickers bars to renew your energy from all the blending)
  7. carefully stir in the cool whip and 6 chopped snickers bars until combined.
  8. (use a large spoon to stir, licking  it frequently to determine when all the ingredients are properly blended)
  9. Place in covered container overnight, so flavors blend.
  10. (eat one of the snickers bars the next morning to make sure they are still fresh)
  11. Garnish with chopped peanuts,(if  it is lacking in crunch) shaved chocolate, or a carmel drizzle (if it is not sweet enough)
  12. serve with mini pretzels or eat with a slotted spoon so the calories can leach out.

  1. What a hoot! This recipe contains just the perfect number of highly-processed artificial ingredients, chemicals, and petroleum-based products (compared to that last recipe here from Dr. Fuhrman with all those grated beets, dates and approximately 59 other impossibly healthy things).

    Q: why spend all that valuable time blending, stirring and adding ingredients for this Snickers dip? Why not save the cream cheese/Cool Whip calories and just sit back with a bag of pure Snickers bars?

    1. Carolyn,
      A: The blending stirring and adding ingredients is so I can boast about what a great cook I am.

      As to the comparison to the recipe from Dr Fuhrman, refined sugar hater, and this FESTIVE feast – I like to provide my readers with options.
