About This Recipe

Many unusual recipes have called themselves “salad.” This recipe for Snickers Salad (yes, it really does use the candy bar), is quite peculiar and native to the Midwest. And it’s delicious, once you get used to the thought that you are eating candy as part of a “salad.”

Tart apples and dried cranberries moderate the sweet flavor of the candy somewhat. Still, I think this recipe could be served as dessert!

You should try this recipe once in your life, just for entertainment and historical value. You may love it! I do!



Combine the pudding mix, milk, and light cream in a medium saucepan. Cook, stirring with a wire whisk, over medium heat until the mixture bubbles and thickens.


Remove the pan from the heat and let cool for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.


In a large bowl, beat the heavy cream with the powdered sugar and vanilla.


Fold the cooled pudding mixture into the cream.


Fold in the apples, cranberries, and chopped candy bars. Cover and chill for a few hours until set.
