Snickers Salad

Salad.

It’s not my favorite food group.

I eat it because you’re supposed to.

BUT I also have to say when I eat salad, I generally load it up with things like cheese, and bacon and ranch dressing, which I’m guessing might cancel out all the salady aspects.

I’m doing my best people.

Also, the only lettuce I like is iceberg.  If I’m going out on a limb I might choose some romaine.

Those fancy “leafy greens” aren’t making it to my plate.

I made the executive decision to banish leafy greens from my life.

And please, I don’t judge you for eating them, so hold your judgement at my choice to put them in a permanent time out.

I gave them a shot.

They failed.

End of story.

 

BUT there might just be a new salad in my life.

Scratch that.  There IS a new salad in my life.

Iceberg has been replaced.

By Snickers.

Yes, this is real life.

Snickers Salad.

I first saw this insanity a few years ago on my friend Bridget’s site.

Bridget, being the ladylike girl she is, used tons of apples in her salad.
I’m not quite as dainty.
I’m a more stick to your ribs, kinda girl.

So I changed it up a little…because fruit, like leafy greens, really has no place in salad.

How to Make Snickers Salad

In my version you’ll need cream cheese, powdered sugar, Whipped Topping, Snickers, marshmallows and fine, a few apples.
PhotobucketMix your cream cheese and powdered sugar until it’s smooth and creamy.
PhotobucketFold in your Whipped Topping.
PhotobucketChop up some Snickers…
PhotobucketAnd the two apples, skin and all…
PhotobucketThen fold all that and your marshmallows into your cream cheese mixture.
PhotobucketThat’s totally it.

    I’m looking for a cute apple cookie or blue bird cookie to make for an up coming party and came across your site. To my surprise I read salad.. WHAT?..then I saw snickers in a salad. I just had to read what this was about..glad I did. 🙂 Thanks for a salad recipe I’m sure the kids will like..even the big ones!

  2. A tip for this salad, is to freeze the mini snickers bars first, then put them in a zip lock bag and then break them apart with a hammer or meat tenderizer. It’s much easier than trying to cut them up and them getting all “melty”. Also throw a little lemon juice and water in a bowl, toss the apple slices in there, and then they wont go brown.

  3. PS- have you seen the GIANT snickers bars? Like, the size of your arm kind of giant?? They’re called “Slice and Share” and I keep seeing them at CVS. I’m sure you could do something amazing with that thing…

  4. My favorite salad is loaded with fried chicken. So, yeah… probably not super healthy either 😉

    This salad looks great!! I made a similar salad with Samoas Cookies instead of snickers and it worked! –just imagine the possibilities! All the stuff you could coat in cream cheese and cool whip and then call SALAD!!! It’s just a brilliant recipe.

  5. I adore this salad. It is in one of my mother-in-laws old church cookbooks and I have had it jotted down for so long but have never made it at home. It’s such a treat though. This is definitely a salad I am on board for!

  6. Our family loves Snicker Salad, it’s all every family gathering. We do ours a bit differently and use instant pudding instead of the powdered sugar and cream cheese.

  7. Oh, I have to share this one with my facebook page peeps! My father was a HUGE snickers fan. We celebrate his birthday every year by eating one…or two or three. Now I can say I’m celebrating in a healthy way. 😀
