Circus Peanut Salad

READY IN: 4hrs 5mins
Recipe by mandabears

Yes, I do mean those orange peanut shaped candies that taste like fake banana goo. I ate this salad/dessert at a pot luck dinner at work and could not believe what was in it. Try it and I think you will be pleasantly surprised, I know I was.

I first had this probably at least 30 +years ago at apot luck and was hoping to find the recipe as I hadn't made it for quite a while and couldn't find it. It always got rave reviews/ simple but just a little different
