  • ¾ cup milk cold
  • 3.4 oz instant pudding vanilla (1 package)
  • 8 oz cool whip
  • 5 cups apples diced, about 6 small granny smith and honeyscrisp apples
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • 2 cups Snickers chopped (5-6 King sizes Snickers bars)
  • 1 cup marshmallows mini
  • ¼ cup caramel


  • Toss the diced apples with lemon juice to prevent browning.

  • You can make this recipe dairy-free by using non-dairy milk, such as almond milk, non-dairy pudding mix (many are already dairy-free!), non-dairy whipped topping (CocoWhip is dairy-free), and dairy-free caramel sauce. 
  • You can use other flavors of pudding mix, such as butterscotch or caramel for this recipe. 
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 2 days. It’s best served in the same day for optimal texture. 
  • I used a combination of apples - honeycrisp and granny smith. Both are very crisp, which hold up well in the salad. I like the tartness from the granny smith and the crisp sweetness from the honeycrisp. The combination is great, but you can also just use one variety if you prefer. 
  • I prefer to leave the skin on my apples for this recipe. It adds additional texture. You can peel the apples if you prefer.
