Mmmm! Have you ever had an Apple Snickers Salad? The term salad here is used loosely–as in, just some ingredients mixed together in a bowl. Really, this is a dessert salad. But, it seems like a bit healthier dessert nonetheless. In my recent quest toward a healthier lifestyle, we’ve been trying to make WAY better food choices. But, sometimes you still need to have a bit of dessert! 😉 For our little Super Bowl party a few weeks ago, we decided to go with all healthier options. We wanted a sweet treat, but we’ve really cut back on gluteny, floury carbs. So, I didn’t want to do football brownies, football oreo pops, or any of the other more usual sugary options. This apple salad was a great way to go! It hit the sweet tooth spot without quite so many calories!
To make the Apple Snickers Salad, you just need 3 ingredients! Apples, snickers, and whipped topping! 🙂 Combine 3 chopped apples (I used Granny Smith for a little more tart flavor, but you really could use any apple you like), 3 chopped Snickers bars, and 1 tub of whipped topping (I used fat free to lower the calories even more)! That’s it! It’s super easy and tastes delicious. After mixing, just pop it in the fridge so everything is nice and cold! Everyone loves it! Just note that this recipe doesn’t keep well for long. It was ok the day after, but add another day and the leftovers aren’t so good. So, you’ll want to eat it as quickly as you can! 😉
