Snickers Apple Salad is an incredibly easy dessert that is a hit with everyone. This is my go-to treat for every BBQ I ever attend!
I love sweet and fruity “salads”. Mixing whipped cream with fruit is so yummy! If you like this apple snicker salad recipe, you will also really enjoy our Twix Caramel Apple Salad.
Snickers Apple Salad
I can literally remember the first time someone mentioned the notion of a Snickers salad to me. My best friend was bringing a treat to a family dinner and when she explained what it was I thought she was crazy.
She was definitely anything but crazy. Combining the delicious flavor of a Snickers bar with tart apples, whipped cream and cream cheese is nothing short of genius. This Snickers Salad recipe is a fruit salad with pudding, whipped topping, and of course – Snickers bars.
How Do I Make Snicker Salad?
- Whisk together the vanilla instant pudding and milk
- Fold in the cool whip topping.
- Mix in the chopped granny smith apples.
- Fold in the bite-size pieces of Snickers Candy bars.
- Refrigerate until serving.
It really doesn’t get any easier than this sweet side dish!
- The first thing to know here is that this is something best served immediately after making. It’s a great recipes, but not one you can make the day ahead. It gets soggy and the apples start to turn.
- When you’re ready to make your Snickers Caramel Apple Salad, you will start by mixing together your cream cheese and whip cream. Then, chop up your Snickers bar and lastly, chop up your apples. (Granny Smith apples are my favorite to use here.)
- Put your apples and Snickers in a bowl and add your cream mixture and fold it together. That’s it!
Snicker Apple Salad Additional Toppings
