Snickers Salad Recipe
We LOVE this simple dessert salad recipe. I like to think of it as a win since there are apples in it, but let’s be real. The Snickers and caramel drizzled on top are quite delicious, too. Anytime I tell the kids we’re having a salad for dinner, they’re silently crossing their fingers and hoping that I mean this salad dish.
I tend to make this for the dessert table a lot during the holidays because I love the fresh taste and pop of flavor that the Granny Smith Apples bring. It’s a fun way to “eat your apple a day” a pair it with some other amazing flavors!
What you’ll need to make Snickers Salad
While I LOVE this recipe, you can always try and switch it up and use a different type of candy bar. This would be a fun way to involve the kids and change it up a bit. (just be sure to chop it up and follow the recipe directions to complete and serve)
Why add lemon juice to sliced apples?
Adding lemon juice to the sliced or cubed apples helps them keep their light coloring and not turn brown. This is important since you’re prepping and then storing it in the fridge to chill.
While you can not add the lemon juice, the result will have the apples turning brown, making them look brown rather than white.
What is the best way to chop up Snickers?
You can use a food processor and pulse for a short amount of time. You can also cut carefully with a knife or put the Snickers inside of a plastic bag and hit it with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
How do you store leftover Snickers salad?
If you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, all you need to do is store them in a covered dish and keep them chilled in the fridge.
Then, when you’re ready to eat, remove and enjoy! Easy peasy.
