Caramel Apple Salad

This is a super simple, delicious fall salad! It only take a couple minutes to whip up, and is always a hit at parties.

What you'll need:
Apples (about 6)
A Tub of cool whip
A package of butterscotch pudding mix
Dry roasted peanuts
Mini marshmallows
Caramel ice cream topping

For apples, I just used what was in the house, which was a couple Ida Reds and 4 Macintosh. It's really yummy if you use some sweet and tart (like granny smith). 
Dice your apples, leaving the skins on. If you're worried about browning, throw your diced apples in a bowl of water with a squeeze of lemon juice in it.
Using a whisk, whip your cool whip with your pudding mix. Add it to your diced apples and mix until coated.
Toss in some peanuts and marshmallows (as many as you like!) and mix in.
Drizzle your caramel on top, and you're done! How easy was that?!

  7. Thank you for another great looks sweet treat linked up to A Crafty Soiree! I've never seen an apple salad like this one, but I'm eager to try it. Sounds like it would taste like one of the fancy candy apples but easier to eat!
