Christmas Caramel Apple Salad

Yes, I realize that Christmas has come and gone...but this salad is worth blogging about BEFORE next year. I made this for our Christmas Eve dinner and it was such a huge hit I had to share it with you. One of my sons dubbed it "Christmas" Caramel Apple Salad" and requested that it make its way to our Christmas Eve dinner table every year from here on out. It was extremely delish and had all the flavors that remind me of the holidays (Thanksgiving AND Christmas)...so from now on, we will be eating this every December 24th...and maybe even on other special occasions as well. Give it a try and see if it will make its way to your holiday tables.

Christmas Caramel Apple Salad
1 bag of snack sized snicker bars, chopped into small pieces (I used my food processor...worked like a charm)
4-6 Granny Smith apples (any apple will work, but I liked the sour of the apple, blended with the sweet of the candy bar and whipped topping)
1 (12 oz) whipped topping
3 T. instant butterscotch pudding mix
3 T. instant vanilla pudding mix
Caramel ice cream topping for garnish

Mix the DRY pudding mixtures into whipped topping. Set aside. Core and cut apples into bite sized pieces, add chopped snicker bars. Add whipped topping mixture and gently fold until all pieces are covered. Warm caramel sauce in microwave to make it easier to pour. Drizzle over the top of salad. Refrigerated until ready to serve.
