Twix Caramel Apple Dessert Salad Recipe

This is not only a good dessert that is easy to make, but it is also a fun dessert too. Who isn’t going to love to sink their teeth into this fluffy sweet and delicious dessert? Packed with caramel apple flavors, paired with Twix candy bars, this apple salad dessert is fabulous.
If you want a sweet dessert where a little goes a long way, this is a perfect recipe to create.  I love that it is one of those super sweet and rich desserts that I can only eat a small portion of before feeling satisfied.  To me, that means I can indulge with less or no guilt!

Can I use different candy in this apple salad?

The best part of this apple salad is the way the apples and caramel bit go with the Twix candy. Even though I love the Twix candy combination, you can honestly use any candy that you think pairs well with it.  Caramel based candy bars work well with the caramel bites in this recipe, but you can play with flavors and come up with a combination you like that is different.

If you want to use something peanut butter, you can replace the Twix with Reeses and then replace the caramel bits with peanut butter chips. You can go with just chocolate and use a chocolate bar and chocolate chips. Whatever candy you like with the apple flavors, you can use in this recipe.

I love using leftover candy bars in recipes.  Especially after holidays like Halloween.  I don’t have to worry about kids getting a tummy ache from eating too much all at once, and the candy won’t go to waste.

Have you tried Candy Bar Cheesecake Bars? It combines the great taste of cheesecake with candy bars. It is another great way to use candy to make a delicious dessert even better.

Tips for cutting candy bars

When cutting candy bars, you want to make sure the candy bars are on a hard surface like a cutting board. Cut the candy into small pieces, about the size of 2 or 3 chocolate chips together. This is a great size. It is small enough to be bite-sized and fit into the same bite with some apple and cool whip, but big enough that you know you are getting a bite of Twix.

Protip:  Freeze the candy bars ahead of time so they cut with clean edges.  This prevents the chocolate from crumbling or the caramel from oozing out.
