Hey, it’s Melissa from Beautiful Life and Home here with a super easy recipe for you today! If you love caramel apples, but you don’t love all the time it takes to make them (plus the time you have to wait for the caramel to set up so you can eat them), then you will LOVE this recipe for Snickers Apple Salad!

*Note: When you click the links in this post, we may receive a commission at no extra cost to you.

It only takes three ingredients and about five minutes to make. Let’s get started!


  • 4 Granny Smith Apples
  • 1 (8 oz.) tub Cool Whip or whipped cream
  • 2-4 (3 oz.) Snickers candy bars


All you have to do is cut and stir. If you can do that, then you are golden! First, cut up your Granny Smith apples into bite-sized pieces. I love to use an apple slicer that removes the core. Then it’s easy to cut each slice into smaller pieces.

Next, chop up your Snickers candy bars. It’s easy if you use a really big knife! Put the cut apples and chopped candy bars into a large bowl and add the entire tub of Cool Whip. Now mix everything up and you are done!


A few options for dressing up this salad are:

  • Toffee bits (you can buy these in a package by the chocolate chips in any store)
  • Additional roasted peanuts
  • Caramel sauce


The apples start releasing their juice pretty quickly, which makes the salad watery. Plan to eat this salad within one day of making it and be sure to store it in the refrigerator. It will last several days in the refrigerator, but the longer it sits, the more the quality will go down.
