Candy Bar Apple Salad

PREP TIME5 minutes


1 box (3.4 oz) cheesecake flavored Instant Pudding Mix
½ cup milk
1 8oz tub of Cool Whip, defrosted according to package instructions
2 10oz bags Prize Slice Apple Mix-Ins
3 full size Snickers candy bars (or other favorite candy bar), chopped into chunks about ¼” thick
½ cup dry roasted peanuts (plus extra for garnish, if desired)

Garnish (optional):
Chocolate covered pretzels
Dry roasted peanuts


Remove candy bar wrappers and cut into chunks using a sharp knife.  First slice each bar once down the middle lengthwise and then cut across the bar in pieces about 1/4” thick.  Set aside.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, pour in instant pudding mix and milk and whisk together until combined.  Stir in defrosted Cool Whip until combined.  Add Prize Slice Apple Mix-Ins, candy bar chunks, and ½ cup peanuts to the bowl. Use a large spoon to gently fold into the pudding and Cool Whip mixture until the Apple Mix-Ins are completely coated.

If desired, garnish the serving bowl or individual servings with chocolate covered pretzels and additional peanuts.
