Snickers Apple Jello Salad Pie

This Snickers Apple Jello Salad Pie is a twist on the Midwest favorite dessert salad turned into a fluffy jello salad pie.

I remember the first time I saw a recipe for Snickers Apple Salad.

It was in Taste of Home Magazine in their potluck section.

Snickers in a salad?

Sign me up. 😀

I love when they call things like that salad.

The salad originated in Minnesota or so that’s the rumor.

The Midwest is great at inventing salads that aren’t really salads.

And I love them for it.

Snickers Apple Salad is a combo of Granny Smith Apples, vanilla pudding mix, whipped cream, and Snickers.

There of course are a variety of variations.

Some don’t use the pudding mix.

Others add cream cheese.

Or in my case…you make it into a jello mold and put it into pie and call it Snickers Apple Jello Salad Pie.

Now, I made this into a pie.

But really you can just make this as a jello salad or jello mold no problem.

I was just going for something a little different this time.

And while I have a piece cut out for the photos, I would honestly just serve these with a fork and tell people to have at it (if making the minis).

If you are making a full size one then yes, you will want to cut it.

Or not.

Maybe still give everyone a fork and tell them to go for it. 😀

I thought about adding fresh apples to the pie but chose not to.

The Jolly Rancher Apple Gelatin has a good strong sour apple flavor all on it’s own.

Plus there is enough texture in the pie with the addition of the Snickers candy bar pieces.

Last but not least…it’s a great time to order my cookbook. 😀

Snickers Apple Jello Salad Pie


  • For the Graham Cracker Crust:
  • 1 ¾ cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 7-8 TBSP melted unsalted butter
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • For the Jello:
  • 1 (6 ounce) package Jolly Rancher Apple Gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped Snickers candy bars
  • For the Whipped Cream:
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 TBSP powdered sugar
  • Chopped Snickers for garnish


  1. For the crust:
  2. In a large bowl add the graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and salt.
  3. Add about 7 TBSP melted butter.
  4. Mix until combined.
  5. If it seems like it needs more butter add the remaining TBSP (mine too the full 8 TBSP).
  6. Divide contents into five 4 inch pie pans or one 9 inch pie pan.
  7. Press the contents to form a shell making sure to go up the sides.
  8. Bake crust/s for 15 minutes at 325F. Set aside.
  9. For the Jello:
  10. Dissolve Jello in water.
  11. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and vanilla pudding mix until fluffy.
  12. Stir in Jello and beat until smooth. If it’s not looking smooth I often run it through the blender to make sure all the ingredients are fully combined.
  13. Add the soda. Mix until incorporated.
  14. Chill the mixture in refrigerator for about 30-40 minutes, so that when you lift it with a spoon it is clumpy.
  15. Fold in the Cool Whip.
  16. Fold in the Snickers pieces.
  17. Pour into the prepared crust/s.
  18. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or until firm.
