I'd never hear of snickers #salad, but once I had it I knew it was no ordinary salad. And now there's a suped up cheesecake version! ohsweetbasil.com

I live in a hole. Or, I did. Seriously, there are so many recipes that everyone seems to know about but I am just discovering. Like remember the whole funeral potatoes business? Yup, I had never heard of those before moving to Utah. And other day Rachel from http://asouthernfairytale.com/ introduced me to frito pie. Which I still need someone to just send me a perfect recipe for so I can try it. And then there’s snickers salad. SAY WHAT? Yup, it’s a real thing though I’m pretty sure it’s more dessert than salad. My cute cousin, Amber made it once and while I could of sworn there were also cookies her recipe definitely doesn’t call for it. So, I’ll post the real recipe later, but it made me want to experiment with an extreme cheesecake snickers salad version.

An even better version of snickers salad, Cheesecake Snickers salad!! ohsweetbasil

This “snickers salad” really did get a tad out of hand. At first I thought she had those fudge stripes cookies in it for some reason so then even when she told me that there definitely weren’t cookies I couldn’t get it out of my head, so in went the cookies. And then I thought, oh I’ve got that cheesecake pudding in the cabinet that needs to be used, so in went the cheesecake pudding. It’s so creamy!

Snickers Salad all suped up as a cheesecake version. good mercy. #salad ohsweetbasil.com-3

So here’s the superstar list, bananas, apples for crunch, snickers candy bars for caramel chocolatey goodness (seriously, just wait until you get a nugget of candy bar in your bite. It’s delicious.) Keebler Fudge Stripes cookies, whipped cream and cheesecake pudding all stirred into one delicious “salad”. The kids loved it. I loved it. And you all are for sure going to love it.

Serves: 4-6 servings
A fun new twist on the classic snickers salad.
  • 3 Cups fresh whipped cream * see note
  • 1 3.4 oz package of Cheesecake Pudding, powder only-don't mix up up the pudding
  • 1 Large Granny Smith Apple, chopped
  • 4 Snickers Candy Bars, chopped
  • 6 Keebler Fudge Stripe Cookies, chopped
  • 1 Large Banana, chopped
  1. Fold together the whipped cream and cheesecake pudding powder until well incorporated. Add the mix ins and fold carefully to not break the bananas. Serve immediately. See note for day ahead prep.
Make sure that you just dump the powder into the whipped cream and not actually make the pudding.

If you'd like to make this salad ahead of time just don't add the bananas or cookies as they will turn mushy and brown. Add those right before serving.
