SNICKERS APPLE SALAD
It’s warming up which means it’s time to fire up the grill and get your BBQ on. If there’s a potluck to be had, I’m the one who always brings dessert. I’ve brought this Snickers Apple Salad to many a BBQ and the dish always comes home without any left. That’s always a good sign.
How can you go wrong with apples, Snickers, and pudding?
First, I started with some vibrant yellow Opal apples. They’re sweet, crispy, and are known for their naturally non-browning nature. They’re a cross between a Topaz and a Golden Delicious apple.
These are the apples I send in my school lunches because they don’t brown at all! They have a naturally non-oxidizing quality that makes them great for desserts like this one.
Snickers happens to be my husband’s favorite chocolate treat. Plus, caramel and nuts are the perfect combination for apples.
If you don’t have a trifle bowl, you can definitely just layer in a any glass bowl. Trust me, it all tastes the same on your plate!
I make a lot of food in my house and everyone was trying to steal bites of this before I could take a picture of it!
How good does that look? Normally you would have to worry about those apples turning brown but not with these Opal apples!
If you like non-traditional salads like this Snickers Apple Salad, you’ll love these recipes:
Snickers Apple Salad
- 1 (5.1) ounce package instant vanilla pudding mix
- 3 cups milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 Opal apples, diced
- 12 Snickers candy bars, diced
- caramel syrup
In a large bowl, beat vanilla pudding mix and milk. Chill in the fridge per instructions to set up.
In a separate bowl, beat heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla until soft peaks form. Chill in fridge.
To assemble: In a trifle bowl or large glass bowl, layer 1/3 of the apples, pudding mix, and Snickers three times (save a few toppings for the very top). Top with whipped cream, caramel syrup if desired, and a few diced apples and Snickers.
Sometimes I fold a little of the whipped cream into the pudding mixture to incorporate the whipped cream throughout.
