Snickers Caramel Apple Salad

Have you ever had a Snickers Caramel Apple Salad???

My friend, Ruth Ann, brought this to work for us a few weeks ago.  OMG . . . it is sooooooo good and I can't seem to get enough.  I mean, hello . . . it has Snickers in it.  I first saw a recipe like this a few years ago online, but never got around to trying it.   Most of the recipes I have seen online use both vanilla pudding mix and Cool Whip, but I loved this just the way it was with only Cool Whip.  
Ruth Ann simplified this recipe by using Snickers Bites rather than chopping up Snickers Bars and she used Caramel Bits rather than chopping up caramels.  So, it's a cinch to make.  I used Jonagold Apples and Granny Smith Apples.  When Ruth Ann brought this to work she used Red Delicious for the red apples, but said she usually makes it with Fuji Apples.  Use whatever red apples you prefer.  

It's best when eaten on day one, but it is still okay on day two.  On day two, the apples start to release juice and make it a little watery.  

Do you usually have a BBQ on Easter?  This would be a delicious salad to serve to your family.

Chop apples into bite-size pieces and place in a large bowl.  Add the Snickers Bites and Caramel Bits and stir to combine.  Last, add the Cool Whip and fold together until everything is evenly coated.  If desired, drizzle caramel ice cream topping over the top and garnish with a few more Snickers Bites.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Best if eaten within 24 hours.      

Jenn's Notes: I did not peel my apples.
