Snickers Caramel Apple Salad

Tomorrow we are having a Thanksgiving potluck at work. I thought this was a perfect recipe for a potluck because I can make it the day before, I don't have to keep it warm, and its super easy. One of the things that perplexed me about this recipe was why is it called a salad because this really sounds more like a dessert. After making it I think that I figured it out. Without the caramel topping and peanuts it looks just like a mustard potato salad. I want to dedicate this "salad" to my co-worker Bill because real salad is his arch enemy. I don't think he will have a problem with this one. I think this turned out perfect. I would definitely make this again.

Snickers Caramel Apple Salad

6 (2 1/4 ounce) Snickers candy bars, chill and chop

6 apples, cored and chopped into bite sized pieces (Granny Smith and/or Red Delicious) 1 (12 ounce) container Cool Whip

1 (5 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding or butterscotch pudding mix (dry mix – do not prepare!)


1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping or caramel apple dip (optional)

1/2 cup chopped peanuts, can also sprinkled on top (optional)

  1. Mix cool whip and dry pudding mix together.
  2. Chop apples and chilled Snickers.
  3. Mix together.
  4. Heat caramel sauce a bit in the microwave- just enough to drizzle, not enough to heat up salad.
  5. Drizzle caramel sauce over salad and sprinkle peanuts on top.
  6. Chill for at least an hour.

Snickers salad, while the epitome of a white trash dessert, does taste good. However, yours would look much, much better if you found the macro setting on your digital camera.

(you probably won't approve this comment, but I have done my job if I can make the world of food blogs just a little bit prettier)
