Snickers Salad Recipe

The idea of a Snickers salad might sound strange but it makes a delicious dessert. This salad is great to bring to parties or events. If you are not familiar with this salad, it combines Snickers candy bars, granny smith apples, cool whip, powdered sugar, and cream cheese. It is important to soften the cream cheese and to let the cool whip thaw before mixing them together. After the salad is mixed it can be topped off with caramel ice cream topping, peanuts, and additional chopped Snickers bars. If you need to feed a large crowd this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. Enjoy.

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (softened)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 (12 ounce) container Cool Whip (thawed)
6 Snickers candy bars
4-6 granny smith apples
Optional toppings-
caramel ice cream topping
additional Snickers candy bars

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: In a large bowl mix cream cheese and powdered sugar until thoroughly blended. Fold in the thawed Cool Whip.
Step 2: Cut the Snickers bars into bite size chunks and fold them into the cream cheese mixture. Chop the apples into chunks and fold them into the cream cheese mixture as well. Top the salad with caramel ice cream topping, additional chopped Snickers bars, and peanuts if desired. Chill 1 hour before serving. Do not let the salad chill for too long (such as overnight), it will result in liquid being released.
(Makes 8 Servings)

    Haha! Anything made with candy bars and considered “salad” is OK in my book! Looks yummy 🙂

    Snickers bars in salad with apples, sounds so wrong that it has to be good and it doesn’t have to snickers, choose your favorite chocolate bar and enjoy

    Definitely a recipe I’d try. Who would have thought snickers bars could part of a salad. Do you think it’d be nice if I include some raisins?

    Clement – Yes, raisins could work well in this recipe!

    Sounds “sinfully good”!

    Raisins would ruin it. I had this salad at a graduation party and it is to die for.

    Why would you need raisins? Perfect the way it is.

    Need to check the recipe as some of it is missing. It just says 1 cup, but does not say what. Glad I read the whole blog as I would not have guessed what the one cup was. I have not heard of this recipe before but really sounds good.
