Perfect no bake fall dessert!

With a stormy weekend looming I had to come up with a dessert idea that I could make even if we lost power.

Enter apple and Snickers trifle!

I love to bake and make desserts so happily agreed to make something for a family reunion today.

Thankfully Pinterest is full of no bake dessert ideas and this one really appealed to me.


Vanilla pudding layered with chopped Granny Smith apples, chopped up Snickers bars and topped with whipped cream, more apples and Snickers!

So easy to make and possible even if the power had gone out.

Can’t wait to try it later!

Here’s the recipe I followed:

5-7 green apples
6 Snickers candy bars
1 large box instant vanilla pudding
1 tub Cool Whip

Prepare the instant pudding according to box directions. Place in refrigerator to set while you prep the other ingredients.

Wash, core, and chop apples into small bite-size pieces (you can toss the apples with a bit of lemon juice to prevent browning).

Chop Snickers bars into small chunks.

Layer the ingredients into a large trifle bowl. Begin with pudding, then cover with apples & Snickers. Repeat 1-2 more times. Then, top with a layer of Cool Whip and add some additional apple & candy pieces.

There’s really no way you can go wrong with this–add additional layers, add Cool Whip to each layer, use a few more or a few less of the apples or Snickers bars…you could even add a little caramel drizzle.

It keeps for a few days in the fridge, but it really is best served soon after making.
