Indulge in this Salted Caramel Snickers Salad for all your big events and game day parties. It’s rich, creamy, and so flavorful you are bound to fall in love.
Over the years, we’ve typically had work schedules that didn’t allow for weekends off. This meant that we’d usually miss out on watching our favorite sporting events. This year, we will actually be able to sit home and watch the big game! So, I’m planning a menu that hopefully hits all the right notes without requiring a ton of work.
Think: pull out both crockpots, and also make a simple mix-and-serve recipe or two. I don’t entertain often, and when I do, I seem to be completely unrealistic about my time and end up stressed out the whole day! So that’s my strategy this year: quick, easy, and good.
The recipe I’m sharing today is one of those sinful mix-and-serve recipes. It’s quick, easy, and beyond tasty.
🍽️ Why This Recipe Works
Great flavor combination – Using tangy apples with sweet candy and grapes is unforgettable. You get the perfect mix of sweetness and zestiness!
Crowd-Pleasing – I promise if you set this out in front of a crowd, they are going to devour it like there is no tomorrow. It’s truly irresistible.
Eight Ingredients – All you need is eight ingredients, and you will have a new favorite dessert for life.
The ingredients in this salad are all super easy. Odds are you probably have many of them in your home already. Let’s talk about some of the main ingredients you need.
Snickers Bars: You will need six Snickers bars for this recipe. They are the star of the show and make it taste even more decadent.
Fruit: Use a combination of Granny Smith apples along with grapes. It gives you some tartness and sweetness in every bite.
Caramel Topping: Something that I think that makes this salad extra amazing is the extra caramel topping that’s drizzled on top. It just takes it to a new level, and it’s so fantastic.
Step One: Add the yogurt to a large bowl and add the vanilla pudding packet. Stir well until combined and there aren’t any lumps remaining.
Step Two: Pour in the cool whip to the yogurt mixture. Mix well and place in the fridge.
Step Three: Chop the Granny Smith apples into bite-sized pieces. Cut the grapes in half.
Step Four: Chop the Snickers candy bars into medium sized pieces.
Step Five: Add all the ingredients together in the large bowl with the yogurt mixture.
Step Six: Sprinkle in sea salt and top caramel topping.
Step Seven: Add the extra candy bars on top and drizzle some extra caramel. Serve and enjoy!
📌 Expert Tips
- It’s a good idea to cut the fruit and chocolate bars in bite-sized pieces. If you cut them bigger, it’s much harder to eat.
- When cutting the Snickers, I found that cutting them in half then cutting 4-5 times across is the easiest way to make them uniform.
- Add the caramel sauce to a squeeze bottle if that’s easier. Or simply use a large spoon and drizzle over the top.
Certainly! We love how Granny Smith apples are tart and they are so good with the other ingredients. However, you can use any variety of apple that you like.
Sure! Chocolate pudding is a fantastic option to add even more richness to the dish.
We always eat the salad by itself, but you can also serve it with other items too. You could serve it with graham crackers, little cookies, or even pieces of fruit.
