Make the Whipped Cream

Use a hand mixer or stand mixer and beat the heavy cream and 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. For additional sweetness, you can add a teaspoon of vanilla extract (before beating) if desired. Fold the whipped cream into the pudding.

Mix apples in sweet cream sauce

Gently mix in the snickers and apples into the pudding mixture until well combined. Refrigerate for one hour before serving.

Recipe Tips

For a variation, add mini marshmallows, grapes, strawberries, or other fruits and/or nuts.

Snickers Salad is best enjoyed shortly after preparation, as the whipped cream may start to deflate, and the apples may release some moisture, affecting the overall texture. If you use whipped topping, it does stay fluffier longer as that is stabilized.

Can I make Snickers Salad ahead of time?

Yes, you can make Snickers Salad ahead of time, but it’s best to prepare it a few hours before serving to avoid the apples from browning, and the sauce from becoming runny. Keep it refrigerated until you’re ready to serve.

How long can Snickers Salad be stored in the refrigerator?

Snickers Salad is best when consumed fresh, but it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1-2 days. Keep it in an airtight container to maintain its freshness. The sauce will become thinner over time.
