  • 6 Snickers bars, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 4 large green apples, cored and chopped
  • 1 (8 oz) container of Cool Whip (or whipped topping)
  • 1 (3.4 oz) package of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows (optional)
  • Caramel sauce, for drizzling (optional)

Optional Additions:

  • Chopped peanuts
  • Additional candy bars (e.g., Milky Way, Twix)


  1. Prepare the Pudding Mixture:
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the instant vanilla pudding mix and milk. Whisk together until the pudding begins to thicken.
  1. Fold in Cool Whip:
  • Once the pudding mixture has thickened, gently fold in the Cool Whip until fully combined and smooth.
  1. Add Snickers and Apples:
  • Add the chopped Snickers bars and chopped green apples to the pudding mixture. Stir until the candy and apples are evenly distributed.
  1. Optional Additions:
  • If using, fold in the mini marshmallows and any additional candy bars or chopped peanuts at this stage.
  1. Chill the Salad:
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld and the salad to chill.
  1. Serve:
  • Before serving, drizzle with caramel sauce if desired. Serve chilled.

Tips for Success:

  • Use tart green apples like Granny Smith to balance the sweetness of the Snickers bars and pudding mixture.
  • For a firmer salad, allow it to chill longer in the refrigerator.
  • Gently fold the ingredients to maintain a light and fluffy texture.
