Snicker salad is right at home on your holiday table. Is it a side dish or is it a dessert? No one knows for sure, but no matter what it is a tasty part of your holiday meal.



  • 1 (3.4 oz) box of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 (8 oz) container Cool Whip topping
  • 4 apples (Granny Smith work best but whatever you have on hand will do.)
  • 6 Snickers bars
  • 1 cup marshmallows OR 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • Caramel sauce for drizzling


In a large mixing bowl, combine the pudding mix and milk. Beat them together with a hand mixer or whisk for 2 minutes.

Gently fold in the entire container of Cool Whip into the pudding. By preparing this first, you can add the apples as you chop them so they don’t turn brown in the air.

Wash the apples thoroughly and then chop them into bite-sized pieces. Add them to the pudding mixture as you go.

Chop the Snickers bars into 8 – 10 pieces each. Add them to the pudding mixture and gently fold them in.

Add the marshmallows (or the chopped pecans) and fold them into the mixture. Stir everything until all the crunchy ingredients are coated in the pudding mix. 

Chill until ready to serve. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the top just before bringing it to the table.

Best enjoyed the day it is made.
