Snickers Apple Salad is an apple fruit salad with cool whip. Our take on the classic Snickers or taffy apple salad is a healthier version, containing chunks of candy, vanilla pudding, plenty of apples, and of course, cool whip. It's a delicious fruit salad with a creamy twist that's bound to impress.

Add the rest of the ingredients. Stir in cool whip and apples. Top with candy chunks.
8 ounces cool whip, 3 green apples, cored and diced, 6-8 small snickers, cut into pieces
Serve. Serve or refrigerate until serving.
Use whole, 2% or skim milk with the vanilla pudding mix.
We typically use a vanilla pudding mix for this recipe because the vanilla flavor pairs well with the cool whip and apple chunks but you could swap for banana, coconut, cheesecake, butterscotch or chocolate mix.
Continue to whisk the pudding mix and milk together until the mixture becomes creamy.
Greek yogurt could be used instead of the cool whip in this recipe. Picking a vanilla Greek yogurt would add an extra boost of flavor.
We prefer to use green apples because the tartness of the Granny smith adds a great flavor to the salad. Other tart apples like Cortland or Pink Lady varieties could also be used. If looking for a sweet apple, Fuji, Gala, Jonagold and Honeycrisp are great options.
Make nut-free by removing the snickers and adding gluten-free pretzels for a crunchy topping.
