Snickers Salad Pin

When the Teen and I were planning the menu for her birthday bash she asked if we could have the apple and snickers salad as one of the desserts.  She said that someone had brought this dessert to one of our many gatherings and it was delicious.  I didn't recall this at all but I told her I would see what I could do.  After all, this is her 19th Birthday and the last year I will be able to call her my Teen.

I went to my trusty Google Search and sure enough, this is a very popular dish.  Who knew?  (Other than the Teen and the unknown guest who brought this to my house unbeknownst to me).  There are tons of recipes for this easy peasy salad on line.  I perused them and then set off to make the salad that I served.  It was a huge hit.  It is like biting into a caramel apple and I have a feeling this is going to be one of my new Fall desserts that gets served up at least once a year.

When Amy announced the theme for this Sunday Funday event, I had to do another Google search of all the prepared, store bought ingredients used in this dessert.  Luckily Snickers, Instant Pudding Mix and Cool Whip are all gluten free.  Enjoy.......

    1. I had never even heard of this before. Marissa insists someone had brought it here for one of our gatherings. I'm wondering if it were Kirsten? Do you know if she made this?

  3. An amazing combo apples and snicker bars. Lovely dessert.

  4. I love the name of this dessert. Snickers Salad , makes it a little guilt free. Loving how easy it is and kids or grown up's would like it alike.
