I don’t think anyone needs to be told twice to add pieces of a sweet and decadent chocolate bar to their salad, so this delicious Snickers salad is the perfect recipe. Tart apples, silky pudding, and fluffy whipped cream are mixed together with six whole nutty, gooey Snickers bars in this dessert salad.

We love a good sweet salad. Try our grape salad and ambrosia salad for two more yummy choices.

SNICKERS SALAD INGREDIENTS

You’ll need:

  • 1 (3.4-ounce) box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup milk (whole, 2%, 1%, or nonfat)
  • 1 (8-ounce) tub Cool Whip whipped topping, defrosted
  • 6 medium-large Granny Smith or Pippin apples
  • 6 full-size Snickers candy bars
  • Caramel sauce (for garnish, optional)
  • Lemon juice for preventing apples from browning (optional)

PRO TIP:

Tart, crisp apples such as Granny Smith will help to balance the sweetness of the rest of the ingredients in this salad.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

APPLES: We think that tart Granny Smith apples are the best apples for this great recipe but you could pick any green or red apples for this sweet side dish. If you prefer sweeter apples, you can choose Gala or Pink Lady apples.

FRUIT: You could switch out or add another type of fruit alongside the apples in this salad. Try strawberries, blueberries, or bananas.

HOW TO MAKE THIS SNICKERS SALAD RECIPE

STEP ONE: Empty the contents of the vanilla pudding packet into a large bowl.

STEP TWO: Whisk in 1 cup of milk. Continue whisking until pudding thickens.

STEP THREE: Fold in Cool Whip until combined. Set Cool Whip mixture aside.

STEP FOUR: Use an apple slicer or knife to cut apples into small bite-size pieces.

STEP FIVE: Cut the Snickers bars into bite-size pieces, reserving a few pieces of each for the top of the serving bowl.

STEP SIX: Mix chopped apples and candy into the pudding mixture.

PRO TIP:

Be careful when you are mixing up the salad. You don’t want to break the chocolate bar pieces up too much so make sure you stir it gently.

STEP SEVEN: Squeeze 1 to 2 teaspoons of lemon juice over reserved apple pieces to prevent browning.

STEP EIGHT: Garnish with apple and chopped Snickers chunks and a drizzle of caramel sauce, if desired.

PRO TIP:

For a bit of extra crunch, sprinkle a handful of peanuts over top as garnish.

HOW TO SERVE

A candy bar apple salad could be just about the best thing ever. The bites of peanut, caramel and nougat are balanced with the tart apples for a salad that is irresistibly delicious. Serve it alongside our iced tea to wash it down.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Store your snickers apple salad, covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. It does taste best same day but is still pretty good the following day.

Our snickers caramel apple salad is full of fresh apples, creamy dressing and plenty of candy bar crunch. The tartness of Granny Smith apples is the perfect combination alongside the sweet chocolate bars and chocolate lovers will be thrilled with this addition to the dessert table.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

This easy recipe can be made ahead of time but you have to make sure you treat the apples so that they don’t go brown. Toss them with fresh lemon juice before adding them to the salad.

What is the best apple to use for this salad?

We like to use Granny Smith apples because of their tartness but if you prefer sweeter apples, look for Galas, Honeycrisp, Fuji, or Pink Lady.

Can I freeze this salad?

This salad won’t freeze very well, so we don’t recommend it. It tastes best when eaten the day it is made.
