Snickers Salad

I love a good salad. Whether it’s a lettuce salad, pasta salad, or fruit salad, there aren’t too many I don’t enjoy.  One salad that I’ve loved for quite some time is Snickers Salad. I’m not sure what’s not to like in this salad. Snickers, whipped topping, apples, and cream cheese. It’s crazy to think people don’t like this salad!

Typically, Ryan and I make this salad with Cool Whip and pudding, but when I found this recipe, I knew I’d love it. I also knew that Ryan wouldn’t like it as much due to the cream cheese. I went ahead and made it when Ryan’s whole family was together last month, and got rave reviews.  I also made it last week for a BBQ and it was a hit. It’s the perfect light summer salad for picnics, BBQs, and days where you just don’t feel like being in the kitchen all day preparing food! 🙂

Snicker Salad

Recipe from Cookies and Cups

8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature

1 tub (8 oz) whipped topping, thawed- I used the light version of Cool Whip and it worked perfectly

1 c. powdered sugar

1 (11.8 oz) package of fun sized Snickers, chopped

2 Granny Smith apples, diced

1 c. mini-marshmallows (I omitted as I don’t like marshmallows)

Mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Add whipped topping and fold until blended. Fold in Snickers, apples, and marshmallows. Chill for an hour before serving.

That’s it! Easy squeezy!
