Caramel Apple Salad, Awesome dessert recipe to use fresh apples

We all have our “weak spot” I can pass up most desserts… but put me near a caramel apple and I am willing to fight for it.  So this recipe for Caramel Apple Salad is one of my favorites for sure.   I might also be guilty from hiding the left overs in the very back of the refrigerator where my children can not find it.  So I can enjoy it, with a big ole spoon in my pj’s later that night (hey don’t judge me lol).

You will need

  • 3 (2 1/4 ounce) Snickers candy bars chopped
  • 4 large  apples, cored and chopped into bite sized pieces ( I like to use Granny Smith or FUGI)
  • 1 (12 ounce) container Cool Whip
  • 1 small box instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 cup buttermilk

In a bowl whip the buttermilk and the dry pudding mix. Once mixed fold in the Cool Whip, then stir in the apples and candy-bar pieces.  Cover then chill for at least an hour.  You can garnish with a a few pieces of candy-bar and apples.   Grab a big spoon and enjoy!

Thanks to my Mother inlaw for this recipe, she has made it for years and it is a family favorite for sure!

Since I am allergic to nuts what would be a candy I could use for it. Or something to get the caramel flavor? Any suggestions?

I actually made this snickers salad today but my recipe is a bit different. Family loves this stuff. There are many different variations out there for it. For the caramel apple version I use caramel ice cream topping drizzled over it!

We call that Snickers Salad in these parts. :-) Of course, candy in the name of a salad seems like an oxymoron. I've also made it with grapes instead of apples, because my husband is allergic to raw apples. It's still delicious, in case you were wondering.
