I've never shied away from sharing a recipe that flopped or went wrong. And while this one wasn't an actual flop per se, it just didn't live up to the expectations I had for it.

Have you ever had the Snicker caramel apple salad? I don't make it often but I love it so when I saw this recipe for it basically in pie form I got pretty excited. (Plus her pictures are lovely and I'm a sucker for good food photography.) But I found mine to be underwhelming, and it didn't really set and sloppy pies just aren't my thing. I'm totally copping to user error and personal preference though since I heard no complaints and my pie plate came home empty. But I think my Snicker salad is going to stay in a bowl from now on.






    
What you'll need:
1 graham cracker pie crust
3 granny smith apples, chopped
15- 20 mini Snicker candy bars, chopped
1/4 caramel ice cream topping
2 1/2 cups Cool Whip
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
4 oz cream cheese, softened

What you'll do:
Place chopped apples into pie crust and top with Snicker pieces.
Drizzle the caramel topping on top.
In a mixing bowl beat the cream cheese until smooth.
Gently fold in  cool whip and sweetened condensed milk, stirring just until combined. *
Spread over the apple and Snicker mixture in pie plate.
Sprinkle a few more Snickers pieces on top and drizzle with caramel sauce.
Refrigerate for at least four hours before serving.

*It's been a few weeks since I made this so my memory is unclear, but I am wondering if I used the mixer the whole time and that is why my pie never set? Maybe I caused it to be too thin. Like I said, I can't recall exactly but that would make sense.

So, you know, don't do that and yours will probably turn out fine :-)
