Fluffy Apple Snickers Salad: The Perfect Potluck Dessert!
Happy Saturday, everyone! I’m cuddled up on the couch with my dogs watching a movie and drinking coffee. We are six days away from moving into the new house, and since I can’t get out and about to keep my mind off the excitement, I’ve been cooking a lot, and that’s why I’m popping on here on a Saturday to blog a recipe! I’ve been playing with a lot of backyard barbecue recipes lately because I’m looking forward to cooking and spending plenty of time outside in the new backyard this summer. I’m sharing one of my favorites today, a fluffy apple snickers salad! It was a dish that almost everyone had on the menu at cookouts back home in Iowa. Mixing Snickers with the word apple shocks people when you mention it here. But I promise it’s delicious! I was so excited for Kyle to try this one! I’ll have him try my favorite, the watergate salad, next!
The great part about this dessert salad is that you only need a few ingredients, and you can make it last-minute before for a party or potluck! Since it has peanuts and apples, it’s “healthy,” right? 😉
I’ve thought about making this salad again with different candy bars to see how it workouts out! Some of my favorites are Twix, Butterfingers, and Kit-Kat! Imagine if they were all mixed in together? 😋 Marshmallows are also a great addition, but I didn’t have any in the house.
All you need are Snickers bars, roasted peanuts, whipped cream, vanilla pudding (you could also use a banana), and granny smith green apples!
