Apple Snicker Salad
Had this at my nephew's graduation party. Very good and not too sweet.
Had this at my nephew's graduation party. Very good and not too sweet.
I had this years ago so I was happy to find this recipe again! A good option here for taste and presentation, swirl some caramel around a pretty glass before adding the ingriedients.. (caramel apple) :)
The kids come running for this one! I must admit I eat my fair share too! Don't make more than a day ahead, it doesn't keep long, can get runny. I used to make this without the pudding, but that is the key to the "carmel apple" flavor of this. I am glad I found this recipe and tried it with the pudding.
This was tasty! I used SF pudding mix and FF whipped topping, and you couldn't tell the difference. We actually didn't care for the Snickers bars in this, as the texture was too chewy, but that's our personal opinion. We really enjoyed the apples mixed into the pudding mixture and it tasted like caramel apples, so that was fun. All in all we enjoyed this, and I would make it again, but I would find a replacement for the Snickers. Thanks for sharing. :)
Been making snicker salad for years. A MUCH easier version of this is just to use Snickers, apples & cool whip, with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Forget the pudding & milk.
I make this with Vanilla pudding. I also mix everything the night before except the apples. This allows the carmel from the snickers bars to add extra flavor to the mixture. Big hit every time I make it.
I follwed the recipe exactly except I only had 4 chocolate bars, next time i'll add 6 like the recipe calls for.I made it to send to my sisters B-day party, the next day she called me to let me know every single guest loved it! I loved how easy it is to put it together, I had it ready in less than 10 min....
Great recipe, we've made it for years and serve it as a dessert. We use vanilla pudding instead, and with a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping the butterscotchy flavour isn't overpowering. As parents we probably won't serve this every day, but we can help our kids learn how to include sweets in a healthy diet - by exposing them to treats from time to time. Thanks for posting!!
I made this today for a cook out at a neighbor's. Even though this is called a "salad", we all agreed that it tasted like a dessert. But either way; it was a great hit. Thank you for posting, lojoyner.
I have been making this for years at every family gathering , everyone loves it. I always double the recipe. to cut the apples faster I use an apple slicer then I put them in a dicer that I purchased at Walmart. It is white oblong, it comes with 2 trays. It always takes between 15-20 minutes to make to entire recipe. I always make the night before so it will be really cold. While my daughter is taking the wrappers off the minature snickers I cut them in half. We cut the apples last, as I am slicing them she puts them in the dicer, this is a lot of fun for the kids :)
Honestly, this sounded really gross to me. My stepmother served it in the fall and swore everyone loved it. Well, I made it for my Christmas party, and she was right. Very, very good. Passed the recipe on to lots of guests.
My friends daughter made this at our last get-together and it was a big hit, especially with the guys. The apple and the snickers go great together!
I don't know what I think of the butterscotch pudding for this recipe - I use vanilla or white chocolate pudding and do a mix of green and red apples.
This sweet Apple salad has been a kid and family favorite for years. I strongly advise using vanilla pudding mix and fold in a can of drained crushed pineapple. The pineapple puts this over the top. Great recipe. Thank you for sharing.
I've made this a couple times, it's really good. I'm not a big fan of butterscotch pudding and I rarely buy it, so I used vanilla, as a few others did. I also only buy the six-serving size pudding mix, so I used that and added an extra half cup of milk. For the whipped topping, it comes in 8 oz containers so I just put in the whole thing. I also buy the fun size or miniature Snickers, freeze them, then hit them with a hammer while they are still in their wrappers. Then I just dump them right into the pudding mixture--no need to cut them up and make a huge mess on the counter. I put in the whole package (it says nine servings are in the bag). I cut up 4 apples. I feel guilty throwing the vitamins that are in those yummy apple peelings down the disposal, so I don't peel my apples, just wash them and then chop them up. They taste great and my family loves them. Plus, then you don't need to feel guilty about putting candy bars in your salad!
This is a great salad. I was excited to try this version with a box of pudding mix in with the topping but I definitely prefer this made with only the snickers, apples and whipped topping (I like the frozen kind in tubs). With only whipped cream the flavors meld better and it's lighter. The ratio of apples to candy is perfect for me. Thanks so much for sharing!
I use vanilla pudding and skip the milk. I also use 6 Snickers and 6 Granny Smith apples so it's a little thicker/not so runny. This is a family tradition and always loved by guests when I make it!!
This was delicious! I made it for a work potluck and it was a huge hit.
Can also use vanilla pudding. If you want it to look pretty, drizzle with caramel and sprinkle with a few peanuts.
a must for special occasions! followed to the letter...
My new favorite quick make and take dessert! Huge hit at two parties I've attended the past 2 weekends.
I prefer vanilla pudding or banana pudding
I used 5 apples and a bag of miniature snickesr and it took me two hours from cutting all the apples, smashing the candy bars, etc to finally getting everything spooned out in the pan.
This is my contribution to Easter dinner, except I'll use Milky Way candy bars because of peanut allergies. I ran a test run for myself this week, and MW works just fine.
Very tasty. Definitely serve right away because the apples start losing their water and can make for an unappetizing dessert.
I make this often. Cheesecake pudding is far superior but you don't need the milk. Just apples, snickers, cool whip and cheesecake jello.
I made this recipe and it was way too watery.
Great recipe as is. ButterScotch pudding is what makes this recipe great. To make breaking the candy bars easier, freeze candy bars ahead of time, when ready to put the bars in, put them on a solid surface and hit with a hammer. Breaks them into nice small pieces.
Instead of butterscotch pudding, I use french vanilla..EVERYONE LOVES THIS SALAD! I get asked to provide this salad to every family event we have! :)
Used 1/2 the milk and made mix and refrigerated overnight. Added apples a couple hours before serving. Very very good
This tastes amazing! Definitely a delight for the taste buds! Try making it with vanilla pudding instead of butterscotch, and be sure to cut the Snicker pieces very small otherwise a single bite might be a little overkill for taste.
I didn't have the recipe that my sister usually makes and my daughter loves; however, she liked this version just as much if not more and my husband's family was raving about it. It was a good one to have her make as well (14 yrs old).
Not much left! Threw this together pretty quick for an after dinner treat. It was a hit. Probably should have let it set longer in the fridge. Tasty!!
I followed the recipe exactly and I wound up with a very runny salad. I did not serve it and the next day it was even more watery. Next time, I’ll make the pudding and let that set up first and then add the other ingredients.
Soooo good. Love it every time I make it.
I only made with cool whip in years past, but the pudding is necessary for the creamy consistency. I would prefer a different flavor than butterscotch.
It is an odd combination, but it is delicious!
The kids loved this recipe! I used White Chocolate Pudding instead of butterscotch and bought a bag of snickers mini's instead of cutting up bars. I really liked it too, it reminded me somewhat of a caramel apple.
I changed the instant butterscotch pudding mix to instant vanilla pudding mix. I loved making this recipe and I will make it again. I will mention to my friends that they should try making it some time in the next two weeks (before Halloween).
It was a hit with everyone.
My mother-in law asked me to make this for Thanksgiving. She loved it! It was a big hit with everyone, as well. I added chopped walnuts and substituted the butterscotch pudding with vanilla pudding.
So good for the holidays
I made it with vanilla pudding. It was a hit at my grandson's birthday party. There wasn't a single bite left. This recipe will be a regular in our family.
I was so excited and interested to see a variation on this salad (Yes, it is called a salad. No, no one really thinks it is one since it has SNICKERS in it) using the butterscotch pudding. I did make it and it was delicious! I think it requires some more apples to balance the flavors; but as written it is a solid four star recipe.
I doubled the recipe and did 1 butterscotch and 1 vanilla pudding. Brought it to my other half's Easter get together and it was a huge hit. They said it was the new favorite and this was now my signature dish to bring to holidays. They've just done apples, snickers and cool whip or just added the vanilla pudding in the past.
Too bad this is fattening. But I guess everything that taste so delicious is! :D This is easy recipe and great for any type of celebration or get-together. Careful... it could be addicting ;)
Idk what I did wrong but mine was all clumpy from the pudding mix. Maybe more milk? More cool whip? Still tastes good, just doesn't look good 😂.
Had this at a party. Now I make it all the time! Fantastic!
I added 2 tablespoons more milk
Simple and nice pudding.. just loved it?
An absolute hit! One of my new favorite recipes!!
You can't go wrong with these ingredients! Made this for the Super Bowl party and everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. Whoever decided to call this a salad is a dessert lover so I will file this under "Desserts"! As for the recipe I decided to lower the milk to 1/2 cup because I was concerned if there was a lot left over it would get runny from the apples softening. I used a small box of vanilla instant pudding stirring only with a rubber scraper to blend in the milk and then gently folding in the 8 oz of thawed whipped topping. I used six snickers bars, the normal size. You can buy these in one package. If using a long chopping knife you can slice/chop all six bars at once at room temperature. I added the chopped snickers to the filling and let it chill for an hour before adding the chopped apples, using only 5 granny smith apples. Depending on the size of each apple you'll have to judge for yourself how many to add. I chilled the mixture another hour before serving and you could definitely chill longer.
