Snickers Caramel Apple Salad (Sugar free option)

This luscious 3-basic ingredient salad/dessert will have you running for M-M-More!  It's SO quick & easy!!  

Did I mention addicting??? 

I've made this a few times recently and every time I do, I'm hearing
RAVES about how good it is!  And always get asked for the recipe!

It's similar to Watergate Salad (in mixing), but this one tastes even better, 
in my humble opinion! 

 I LOVE Caramel everything! 

I love using SUGAR FREE Butterscotch Pudding!  No one would guess it's sf.
But it's great with 'regular' instant pudding too. 

(If you want totally sugar free, omit the candy bar!
But I do think you could add sf peanut butter cups that would be great!) 

The chopped Snickers candy bar is optional, but chocolate always makes
everything better, right?  It adds some nice texture too.

The apples add such a lovely crunch.  

You don't really taste the pineapple, as the caramel (butterscotch) 
takes over! 

Whip it up soon - your family will love you for it!! Impressive for any
meal - great for potlucks.

1-20 ozs. can crushed pineapple, slightly drained
1 box (4-serv. size) (sugar free) instant butterscotch pudding 
1/2 to 1 full 8 ozs. tub Cool Whip, thawed
2 apples, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces

2 Snickers candy bars, chunked (optional) 
chopped peanuts, optional 

In large bowl, pour crushed pineapple.  Stir in dry instant pudding mix,
mixing until smooth.  Add as much Cool Whip as you'd like. 

(You can make this much ahead - refrigerate - then mix in chopped apples just before serving) 

After apples are stirred in, stir in a few pieces of chopped Snickers if preferred.
Top with a few more candy chunks, and/or chopped peanuts. Serve chilled.

  1. I haven’t made this in years, Marsha, and using butterscotch sf pudding would make it extra delicious!

    1. Oh it does - gives it that 'caramel' flare...so so delish! Thanks for stopping by. XO
