Caramel Apple Salad

6 (2 1/4 ounce) Snickers candy bars, chill and chop
6 apples, cored and chopped into bite sized pieces ( Granny Smith and or Red Delicious)
1 (12 ounce) containers Cool Whip
1 (5 ounce) boxes instant vanilla pudding (NO milk, use dry mix, DO NOT prepare!) or 1 (5 ounce) boxes butterscotch pudding mix ( NO milk, use dry mix, DO NOT prepare!)
Garnish for extra flair
1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping (optional) or 1/2 cup caramel apple dip (optional)
1/2 cup chopped peanuts, can also sprinkled on top (optional)
Mix cool whip and dry pudding mix together.
Chop apples and chilled Snickers.
Mix together.
Heat caramel sauce a bit in the microwave- just enough to drizzle, not enough to heat up salad.
Drizzle caramel sauce over salad and sprinkle peanuts on top.
Chill for at least an hour-- Voila!

  1. Many years ago the first thanksgiving after Andy and Vicki started dating, Vicki invited us to come to her house for Thanksgiving dinner. I asked what she wanted me to bring and she said "bring your family's favorite salad." After giving it much thought, I had no idea what that was so I decided on a macaroni salad. In the meantime Vicki asked Tyler what kind of a salad I would bring? he said it would be caramel Apple salad. so I guess that was his favorite salad. I had only made it a few times before that and had forgotten about it. He was disappointed when I showed up with a macaroni salad.
