Snickers Apple Pudding Salad

This seriously is the perfect dessert (or even side dish) for a hot summer day! My kids DOWN this salad whenever I make it and it is always a big hit at BBQ’s or potluck dinners. Some of you will fight me on this, saying that this is not a salad . . . but one of the definitions of a salad is “a varied mixture”, which is exactly what this is! 🙂 It may not be healthy for you, but it is certainly delicious!

The crunchy apples and chewy candy bar pieces are the perfect compliment to the pudding base. I don’t recommend making this the night before because the apples tend to get a little mushy (I think that it tastes better when they are really crunchy).

  1. As if this were not wonderfully sinful enough.. I add a 8 oz. cream cheese and 1 cup powdered sugar to mine. Well, it just takes it one step further in greatness. It is a wonderful treat for get togethers! Oh! And the extra tip. freeze your Snickers and hit them with a hammer before you open them, makes it a LOT easier than trying to cut them.
  2. I used to live in North Dakota, and thought this was a totally crazy (but delicious) idea that only NoDak folks knew about! I can't believe other people do it too! Thanks so much for reminding me about this delicious idea! I'm so in love with your site, the inspiration here is incredible! I'm just starting blogging and would love if you took a look around my place. Thanks again!
