It's October! Snicker Apple Salad

Aren't you so excited about the truth of my title?!!  October is, hands down, the best month ever. I get a happy feeling in my belly this time of year, it's so much fun.  I know a lot of folks get really bored and annoyed when all the pumpkin spice lattes roll out, but it couldn't make me happier. I also finally have a good excuse to wear scarfs. (Even though it's still in the 80s outside). It's October, do what makes you happy.  Watch some football, enjoy some food from the Fair, roll around in some beautiful leaves, have a chai latte, read a book. I'll take all of the above.

We all know what else makes me happy: making treats that people love.

I made this little dish this week for the group of folks I work with. I think it was a hit. I'll show you how I did it and add in a couple of ideas to tweak it a little. I think you'll like it, what says "October" like snickers and apples in the same dish?

Snicker Apple Salad: Full recipe below

 Here is what you will need. It can't get much easier!

 How did I get those perfect cubes from a snicker bar?? Well, I used my handy ulu knife. It did the trick flawlessly! 

 Regular knife for the apples. Don't worry about peeling the apples, the skin gives the dish color and character! I used Red Delicious apples. They are very sweet on top of the sweetness from the other ingredients. For a little kick, use Granny Smith or Pink Lady apples.

Mix and stir. 

Drizzle the caramel 


Snicker Apple Salad:

6 Regular Snicker Bars
6 Apples
1 Pack Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix (dry)
1/2 Cup Milk
12-16 oz. Whipped Topping
Caramel or Chocolate Ice Cream Topping

Chop apples and snickers into cubes; set aside. Whisk together pudding mix, milk, and cool whip until creamy and with no clumps. Stir in apples and snickers. I suggest leaving a small handful of snicker cubes out to sprinkle on top. Lastly, drizzle the caramel topping over the entire salad. Serve and Enjoy!
