Creamy Smoked Trout with Apple and Horseradish

Are you going to a Holiday party and in charge of bringing an appetizer?  I am and was  searching for an easy, no fuss but delicious dish to bring.  So I asked Katie to share one of her go to recipes with us and she made this delicious Creamy Smoked Trout with Apple and Horseradish. I love how the apple blends with the smoked trout and I think that makes it a lighter, more refreshing taste.  We paired it with sea salt crackers, but the recipe calls for toasted brown bread.  Give it a try and report back…

Snickerdoodle

Wait.. this is one post you do not want to miss!  I know you think from the title that you are going to get a recipe for Snickerdoodles, and you are, but these are not the snickerdoodles you think they are. These should be called Snicker-Krispies because, OMG, they are unbelievably good. If you like Snicker bars and Rice Krispie treats…you won’t believe what a great combination these are.  Yowzer! The recipe calls for melting Snickers in the Marshmallows and then chunks of Snickers (two bags of fun size!) mixed in so that every few bites you sink your teeth into a candy explosion. You won’t be able to stop at one piece, I know I couldn’t, they are that good.  Give them a try and let me know what you think..  A big thank you to Runa for sharing this special recipe with me (and you!).

This recipe can be made with any candy you fancy. We tried it with 100 Grand bars and they were really good.. but Snickers is my favorite.
