Samoas Apple Salad
I was super excited to do this Girl Scout Cookies series, but I was also a little afraid that I might run out of ideas trying to spread out one cookie over an entire week.
SO. NOT. THE. CASE.
If anything, I can’t get my brain to stop thinking GS Cookies. Ever.
It’s actually been kind of awesome. (a little sleep depriving, but awesome)
If you ever have “bloggers block”, pick a theme to follow for a week– that should do the trick!
Anyway. As promised: my extra post for Samoas Week…..
You’ve probably heard of Snickers Apple Salad.
I think that’s a pretty well-known thing, right?
I tried it for the first time a couple of years ago.
Ah-mazing. Love it.
It’s the easiest thing ever, but I never make it.
I sit there and think, “oooooh, remember that snickers apple salad?”
And that’s about the extent of the thought/action process.
The other day, as I was scanning Pinterest for recipes that I thought could be turned “Girl Scout Themed,” I ran across that Snickers Apple Salad recipe, and realized that Samoas would make an absolutely amazing substitute for the Snickers!
I know I’m always right, but sometimes I surprise my self at HOW right I am.
(My husband is somewhere fighting the unexplainable urge to roll his eyes right now.)
This salad is so great. So easy. And SO Samoas!
And I do mean so samoas. As in: an entire box.
If you can’t part with the whole thing, half the recipe :)
Samoas Apple Salad
- 1 box Samoas (or Keebler’s Caramel Delights)
- 1 – 8 oz Cool Whip Lite
- 1 small box vanilla instant pudding
- 1 1/4 c. milk
- 5 medium apples (granny smith is best)
- Optional: chocolate syrup for drizzling, and toasted coconut for garnish
- Whisk together the milk and pudding mix until thickened. Immediately whisk in the cool whip.
- Using the paddle attachment of a stand mixer, mix the pudding mixture and the cookies on high– so that the cookies are crushed up really well and incorporated.
- Core and dice the apples, add into the bowl.
- Rough chop remaining (reserving 1-2 for garnish) cookies, add into the bowl.
- Using a rubber spatula, mix until all ingredients are coated in the pudding mixture.
- Optional: garnish with crumbled cookies, toasted coconut, and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
- Refrigerate until serving.
