The Most Delicious Dessert Salad
Is it a dessert or a sweet side dish? It can be either one! I don’t know who named it a salad but… does that make it acceptable for dinner?
- Snickers candy bars are the star of this salad and make it taste so delicious!
- Only 6 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep.
- Perfect to prepare in advance for a potluck or picnic!
Ingredients & Variations
Creamy Base – This salad starts with instant vanilla pudding mix, milk, and whipped topping (like Cool Whip) for a fluffy base.
Add-Ins – Snickers salad lends itself to a lot of tasty mix-ins!
- Fruit: The best apples for this salad are green apples because of the tartness, but gala, honeycrisp, and red delicious apples can all be used. Other fruits that can be added are sliced strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, or lemon zest.
- Nuts: Add in some nuts for an extra crunch. Sliced almonds, pecans, candied walnuts, or peanuts are all good choices!
- Sweets: Chopped snickers bars add texture and flavor to this salad. Other fun additions are mini marshmallows, and chocolate chips, or finish the salad with a caramel sauce drizzle!
How to Make Snickers Salad

To refresh, gently stir it up and a dash of lemon juice will help refresh the flavors. Sadly this Snicker apple salad doesn’t freeze well.
