Milky Way Caramel Apple Salad #EatMoreBites

My family and I have a sweet tooth.  We love an occasional treat and often dessert is what will entice my son to eat what is on his plate.  My husband LOVES chocolate and candy bars, but I prefer something a little on the lighter side.  This weekend I made a delicious dessert that incorporates both, a Milky Way Caramel Apple Salad.

It all started while I was shopping for our weekly groceries at Walmart.  As my daughter and I were cruising down the aisles, we were greeted by a big display of Milky Way Simple Caramel and Snickers bites.  I had to stop because I absolutely love caramel and Milky Way bars.  I picked up a few packages as well as some delicious apples thinking I could make something with them.

Whenever I decide to make a dessert I think about my presentation.  I knew that a mixture of red and green apples would not only taste delicious, but it would look prettier when it was time to present my dessert.  I used a mixture of Granny Smith apples and Gala apples.

This dessert is extremely simple to make, yet it is delicious and loved by all who tried it. Don’t let the four ingredients (including the garnish) fool you into thinking that this is a plain dessert.  It is full of flavor and is a light alternative to a typical chocolate dessert. Your family and friends will love it.

Milky Way Caramel Apple Salad
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
A quick and light dessert perfect for those who love fruity desserts as well as those that love chocolate bars.
  • 6-8 Red and Green Apples cut into small bites (about 6 cups)
  • 1 Tub of whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 Bag Milky Way Simply Caramel Bites, chopped (I didn't chop them the first time I made this and it is much better and easier to eat if you do chop them)
  1. Cut apples and place them into a very large mixing bowl.
  2. Add whipped topping and stir.
  3. Fold in chopped Milky Way Simple Caramel Bites.
  4. Keep refrigerated and serve after 1 hour of chilling. Top with a drizzle of caramel syrup or some apple slices.

Apples are one of the few fruits that my son will actually eat, so I wanted him to know that this dessert had all of his favorites in it.  Therefore, I topped the desserts with a little apple garnish.  You could (and I would highly recommend this) add some caramel syrup to the top to really play up the caramel in the Milky Way Simple Caramel bites.
