Snickers Caramel Apple "Salad"

...and by salad, I mean dessert.   Make no mistake, this is not a healthy is a Cool-Whip-Snicker-Bar-Caramel thing with the "salad" portion coming from the ever-so-lovely apples that are EVERYWHERE right now.  All that being said, this is a super yummy, completely unexpected treat.  This is a perfect dish for a Halloween party as well as a summer potluck. 

Snickers Caramel Apple "Salad"
  • 6 (2 1/4 ounce) Snickers candy bars, chill and chop
  • 6 apples, cored and chopped into bite sized pieces.  I like the combo of Granny Smith and Braeburn.  It is quite sweet, so the tartness of some Granny Smith really balance nicely. 
  • 1/2 cup Kraft Caramel Bits (they are by the chocolate chips in the grocery store)
  • 1 (12 ounce) container Cool Whip
  • 1 TBSP instant Butterscotch Pudding Mix
  • 1 TBSP instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
  • Caramel Sauce for garnish
Mix the dry powdered pudding mixtures into the Cool Whip container until well combined.
In a large bowl, add chopped apples and Snickers Bars.  Add the Cool Whip mixture to the bowl and fold gently making sure to coat all the pieces evenly.  Warm caramel sauce in microwave, just to make pouring easier.  Drizzle top of "salad" with the caramel.  Chill for one hour.  Enjoy!

  1. I've always wanted to try this. Such a fun 'salad'!

  2. will the apples hold up if you make it the night before?

  3. Where do the caramel bits come in? Are we warming those with the caramel sauce or should they be added to the salad itself?

  4. What do we do with the caramel bits?

  5. I just melted it and mixed it with the apples before the cool-whip. Still good.

  6. Wow that looks like heaven, gotta give this a go. Thanks for posting this.
