Salad Side Dish or Salad Dessert?

Snicker Apple Salad is the perfect holiday or potluck dish. Crunchy granny smith apples, chunks of snickers and a creamy pudding sauce.

Much like the jello salad, there is much debate about whether this is a side dish recipe or if it should be categorized as a dessert recipe.

Even my house is divided on the subject. My opinion is dessert since most of the components would be considered dessert on their own. But you do you. I’m pretty sure nobody is going to complain when snicker apple salad is in front of them.

Such an Easy Dessert Recipe

This snicker apple salad couldn’t get easier to make. I start with the sauce for the salad. An instant pudding mix and half the amount milk the pudding calls for is whisked together until it’s thick and creamy. Then fold in a container of Cool Whip. You know it’s going to be good when Cool Whip is involved.

Set the sauce aside while you prep the rest of the ingredients. First, chop up most of a bag of fun size snicker bars. Hide the rest in the back of a cabinet for a rainy day.

Next the granny smith’s get a quick chop and all that’s left is to toss together everything.

Granny Smith Apples = Texture

The textures in this salad are one of my favorite things about the dish. The crisp granny smith apples with the chewy bites of snickers and all that creamy pudding and Cool Whip. It’s all kind of magical.

I like to keep the apples and snicker chunks the same size so that everything is evenly distributed and you can easily get a bite of both in every spoonful. It’s kind of critical that you get all that goodness each time.
