Caramel Snickers Apple Salad | Dessert

This is by far my favorite salad!!! But of course it is not at all as healthy as a salad filled with vegetables. This delicious dessert has been a huge hit at potlucks, birthday parties, and barbecues and what’s even better is that it is so simple. After bringing this to a holiday party at work, I had one of my colleagues come up and ask me how hard it was to make and if he could have the recipe. Turns out he was going to be spending Thanksgiving with his girlfriend’s family and wanted to impress them by bringing something that he made himself and that tasted phenomenal! So, take his lead and make this if you want to impress your coworkers, friends, or family and know that it took little effort to throw it all together.
