The first time I had this apple salad was years ago at a get together with friends. Instead of chocolate bars it was made with Snickers candy bars (which is the popular recipe that you see most often). The thing that I remember the most from all those years ago is throughout the evening this recipe was being referred to as ‘party in your mouth’. It’s exactly that! When generally you would think putting these things together (candy bar caramel apple salad?) would just not work, this totally does! It’s great for a large gathering, potluck, or I suppose any time you want it really. Whether you make this with IKEA chocolate bars, Snickers, or any other candy bar, I know you’ll love it!
