DH’s Grandmother’s Snickers Candy Bar Pudding

DH’s grandmother’s cookbook.

Does anyone know what the second ingredient is in the chocolate pudding recipe?

I guessed sugar.

DH thinks the word is Snickers.

DH’s guess is supported by the correct spelling of the word sugar in the vanilla sauce recipe on the opposite page. But, I am still skeptical.

DH talks a lot about what a good cook his Grandmother Helen was. So I wanted to do something special for him and to make him something from her cookbook. 

Only I wasn’t sure about the recipe’s second ingredient.

DH was. 

Once I asked for his help and showed him the cookbook he had a craving for Snicker pudding. He offered to run down to the closest convenience store.

There is no way I would ever turn down an opportunity to get Snickers bars into our house. I agreed to make the pudding if DH would get the candy.

Six cups of milk sounded like too much pudding for two people so I halved the recipe. We still had two day’s worth of dessert. It was good. DH loved it.

(I did decrease the cornstarch to  1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup and the pudding was still thick. I also added some sugar along with the snickers.)

    I am soooooooooooooooo envious of that recipe collection. You have no idea. I have a couple of each of my grandmothers’ recipes in their handwriting, but a whole collection like this would be wonderful.

    The pudding doesn’t sound too shabby, either!

    DH just said that actually when he was moving his grandmother someone had thrown her handwritten cookbook in the trash.

    I am so glad he got it. Thanks for coming by and for your comment!

    My sister Karen inherited all of them from our grandmother and mother…she can cook and bake just like them too!

    I cannot believe someone would throw such an heirloom in the trash.

    chughes,

    I am still not sure Snickers bars were the right ingredient, but the pudding was good. DH loved it. And that was why I got out the cookbook in the first place. I wanted to make something for him from his grandmother’s cookbook.

    Barngoddess,

    I love that cookbook too. I am so glad DH got it before it was too late.

    Merrimerri,

    I have a sweet tooth too! Which is why more of my recipes are desserts than anything else.

    Thanks chughes, barngoddess and merrimerri for your kind words.
