Caramel Apple Snickers Salad

I'm never really sure if those pudding and Cool Whip salads are actually a side dish or a dessert? I've seen them served both ways? Why can't more foods be dually classified? This Caramel Apple Snickers Salad would make a great side dish or an easy dessert idea in my opinion. Either way, it's delicious! :)

Yield: 10-12 servings

½ cup milk
1 pkg (5.1 oz.) vanilla or French vanilla instant pudding mix
1 tub (16 oz.) Cool Whip, thawed
6 regular size Snickers candy bars, chopped
4-5 medium size apples, cored and chopped
½ cup caramel sauce

In a large bowl, whisk the milk, pudding mix and Cool Whip until well combined. Stir in the candy bars and apples. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. When it is time to serve, drizzle the caramel sauce over the salad or over individual servings.

Do you think these types of "salads" are more for a dessert or a side dish?
How do you usually serve them?

  2. Forget side dish and forget dessert too, if it's got apples it's healthy and I'd call it dinner.

  14. My vote is for dessert.
    I'm guessing this tastes sort of like one of those fancy nut-covered caramel apples? Oh my goodness.

  22. Jamie,
    I would serve this as a side dish or a dessert too. With all the other ambrosia type salads out there this one would fit right in and probably be the hit of any meal :) Thanks for sharing.
