Snickers Salad


You know them.  Those big bowls of mystery ingredients that sit on summer BBQ potluck tables.  They call themselves “salads.”  These retro salads have been around for a long time and guess what?  People LOVE them.  I decided to give some retro salads a bit of a makeover.  I know people love them so I just gave them a fresh look with a few changes!

1 package (14 ounce) Pillsbury Simply Peanut Butter Cookie Dough
2 (6 ounce) containers Chobani Apple Cinnamon Yogurt
5.1 ounce box Vanilla Pudding
1 cup Cool Whip
10 fun-size Snickers Candy Bars (chopped into small pieces)
Caramel Sauce for garnish

Preheat oven to 350.

Remove cookie dough from package and divide the 12 pieces in half.  Press the 24 pieces into a mini muffin pan either greased or lined with paper liners.  Bake for 12 minutes and set aside.

In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, pudding mix and cool whip.  Once combined, add snicker pieces.

Serve the Snicker Salad on top of the peanut butter cookie cups and drizzle caramel on top.

Makes 24 cups
