  • 1 package instant vanilla pudding mix 3 oz package
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 8 oz Cool Whip thawed
  • 3 granny smith apples cored and chopped
  • 3 Snicker Bars chopped


  • In a large bowl combine the pudding with milk, whisk until combined.
  • Gently fold in Cool Whip.
  • Mix in snickers and apples.
  • Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.



How do I fold in Cool Whip?
You don’t want to stir it in because the Cool Whip will deflate and your salad won’t have a light and fluffy texture. Instead, add the Cool Whip in a few small batches and, using a spatula, gently fold the cool whip into the pudding so they fall over each other until they combine. It takes a little patience, but I promise it’s worth it! You will love the light and fluffy texture when it’s time to serve the salad.
Mix in the chopped apples and Snickers bars and that’s it! At this point, you can cover the bowl and chill the Snickers Salad in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve it.
What apples should I use?
I use tart granny smith apples because they are a great combination with sweet pudding. This dessert salad is light and fluffy and the combination of chocolate and apples is… well, I’m telling you, it’s delicious! Everyone loves it!
You can use whatever apples you would like, but I personally recommend going for the Granny Smith! Other great options are Red Delicious or Gala.
What else can I add to Snicker Salad?
Sometimes it’s made with grapes and other kinds of fruit, but I really love the classic combination of Snickers bars and fresh apples.
Here is a list of other ingredients that can be added to this delicious dessert salad!
  • Marshmallows
  • Grapes
  • Strawberries
  • Toffee
  • Firm sliced bananas
  • Swap the instant vanilla pudding mix for banana pudding mix
  • Crushed vanilla wafers, make sure to add right before serving
