Double Snicker apple salad uses two kinds of candy, green apples and whipped topping. It’s super easy to make and great for potlucks and holidays!
I have another fun side dish to share with you today, and I have to admit that I thought twice about posting this one. Why? Well, it’s got Snickers candy and Cool Whip in it, and you’re probably thinking that we all have horrible eating habits. But really, I haven’t made this Double Snicker Apple Salad in a looong time — truly! In fact, the younger kids don’t remember it, and they even asked why I was adding a Snickers bar to a chicken salad! But my older two used to love this, and when we were planning our Easter menu they suggested I make it again. So , I did!
I don’t even remember where I found this recipe, but I think it was at a party or potluck somewhere. In fact, I used to take it to our own church potlucks, and it was always a big hit with the kids — and probably, the adults too!
This time, I tweaked the original version because not everyone in the family likes peanuts. So I combined the Snickers Peanut Butter candies with the regular Snickers, and this combination worked really well with the tartness of the green apples. The kids love snacking on apples and peanut butter, so they loved the combination in this salad. And, this is why we call it Double Snicker Apple Salad.
The nice thing about this dish is that you can easily make as much as you want. You could also make it with just the peanut butter candies if you don’t like the crunch from the peanuts either. The cinnamon is optional too, but you’ve probably noticed that I add it to just about everything!

I have to admit that this was a tasty little trip down memory lane, and we all enjoyed it!
And since it does have apples and protein, this is kind of, sort of a real salad, right? Have you ever heard of Snickers, or Snicker Apple Salad? Enquiring minds want to know!
