Snickers Apple Salad

Fall has finally arrived here in Southern Illinois!  Last week it felt like Summer might go on forever!  With cooler temperatures finally showing up, I have a feeling the apple orchards and pumpkin patches will be packed.

One of my favorite fall treats is a caramel apple.  This Snickers Apple Salad reminds me of a caramel apple, only better!  You get the flavors of apple, caramel and nuts, but you also get the creaminess of the cool whip and cream cheese mixture along with chocolate!

This Snickers Apple Salad is so easy and quick to put together.  The most difficult part is waiting for the cream cheese to soften.  I like to use a mixture of Granny Smith and Honeycrisp apples in this salad.  I think the tartness of the the Granny Smith pairs nicely with the sweet Honeycrisp.

This Snickers Apple Salad is perfect to take to a fall gathering or even Thanksgiving dinner.  I took it to a luncheon at work last week and everyone loved it!

Make sure to pick up some apples at the orchard or store this week and give this Snickers Apple Salad a try.  You’ll love it!
