Candy Apple Salad as by Frank Johnson!

This is a very different salad from what I am use to. Very unusual ingredients go together to make this luscious salad, that is more dessert than salad. Great for any picnic or pot luck supper or just to have at home! Thank you Frank for sharing this recipe that was handed down through his family! I took it to our family reunion today & it was a success!
1, 20 OZ. Can of Pineapple Chucks ( drain & save the juice)
2 Cups Mini Marshmallows
2 Cups Peeled & sliced Apples
1 & 1/2 Cups Salted Cocktail Peanuts
8 OZ. Cool Whip
1 TBS Flour
1 & 1/2 Cups Sugar
1 Well Beaten Egg
1 & 1/2 TBS Vinegar
In a deep saucepan put in the flour & sugar mix well. Add beaten egg & mix well slowly adding the pineapple juice, stirring or whisking well. Add the vinegar & whisk or beat. Now over medium heat cook, whisking or stirring while cooking. Bring to a boil & stir or whisk until mixture thickens. This takes about 10 minutes give or take. This will not be real thick but more along a thick syrup consistency & it will thicken a little as it cools. Once cooked chill for at least 3 hours or overnight. I put mine in a sealed container overnight in the frig.
Now stir the pineapples together with the mini marshmallows in a deep bowl or dish that has a lid. Chill in the frig for 3 hours or overnight. I did mine overnight. Once chilled, stir the thickened sauce into the pineapple mixture. Add the salted peanuts & your peeled chopped apples into the mixture. Stir in the Cool Whip &  chill until you are ready to serve! This recipe is well known in our Southern states but I never heard of it before. I was told to ALWAYS DOUBLE the recipe because it is THAT GOOD! IT IS & I DID & it is GOOD! I did not think it tasted like Candy Apples but it taste SO GOOD I did not mind! ENJOY THIS DIFFERENT SALAD/DESSERT Foodies!
