Snickers Caramel Apple Salad
This is by far the most unique apple dessert recipe I’ve seen so far! A Snickers caramel apple salad; my two favorite sweets whipped up into an amazing indulgence. Candy bars are the one ingredient that I forget can be chopped up and added to any dessert parfait, salad, or mousse. They should just put those suckers in the baking aisle.
This is an easy and beautiful looking apple braid dessert from Busy Mommy. She gives easy and thorough instructions on the preparation and baking process. Top it with cream cheese and almond slivers. Yum! I don’t see why you couldn’t also drizzle a little caramel or sprinkle a little cinnamon on top.

Apple dessert bars are perfect for taking to the office or giving out as gifts. You could wrap them each individually with a cellophane wrap and then trim them with holiday ribbon and a cute little gift tag.
I’m in love with this idea! Apple nachos! Bonus: It’s vegetarian and vegan friendly. Raw apples have just the right amount of crispness to act as a substitute for chips. Top them with all of your favorite goodies.

Cupcakes seem to be the most popular thing on the planet. I’ve seen so many different flavors and toppings, but I’m really digging the idea of this apple pie cupcake. You’re going to cut a cone shape out of the top of each cupcake to make room for your apple pie filling. Next, top with frosting or whipped cream, and enjoy.
