It’s the perfect time to splurge on this decadent, creamy Twix Apple Fluff Salad. It’s simple to whip up and perfect for potlucks or picnics.
Once in a while you just have to indulge in something that’s delicious, whether it’s “good for you” or not. This is one of those amazing, gotta splurge on it desserts! It’s super creamy and sweet, full of crisp, tart green apples, crunchy Twix bars and fluffy marshmallows. The creamy “dressing” is a combination of non-dairy whipped topping (I prefer Tru-Whip) and vanilla pudding.
But let’s be real, this is a dessert, but it’s got apples. So that makes it a little bit healthy, right? I mean, there are a lot of apples! And pineapple. Pineapple’s good too.
Whether you want to go with the “healthy” dessert side or not, everyone can agree that this dessert is positively scrumptious. Take it to your next potluck, picnic or backyard barbecue, and I guarantee it will be the first dessert gone.

This same thing happened to me. I used the correct size package. I did use a “generic” brand pudding. Don’t ask me why. My husband was being cheap, I suppose. LOL! Anyway, I thought that maybe that was the reason. It was so thick, it was sticking to the blades of the mixer, and after I folded in the whipped topping, my kids said it looked like chunks of egg yolk were mixed into the cool whip.
I also thought it could be from the amount of milk. Usually pudding calls for 2 cups I thought.
Anyway, I don’t know what the reason was behind it. It could’ve been any of those, I guess. All in all, my entire family enjoyed the dessert, and I was happy to use up a bunch of mini twix sticks from fheir Easter baskets. Both my husband and my son, quickly realized the importance of using the granny smith apples tho. They said it would be way to sweet, had that tartness not been present.
These r terrific ideas. But am on WW points points program. And need to know calorie count. Will need 2 make adjustments for fat content.
Do you need to drain the pineapple?
No, you do not need to drain the pineapple.
How many calories
When I mixed the pudding mix and milk it was super thick and wouldn’t blend with the whipped topping. What did I do wrong?
I wonder if maybe you used a larger box of pudding mix than what was called for in the recipe?
can this be made the night before? It is for a luncheon. so that would be about 12 hours before serving.
I did see where you said no to making it the night before because the apples would brown. so how about if the rest was put together except putting the apples in?
I suppose that would work!
they look good
Why are ppl asking can it be made with out this or that or can you speak the Apple ….like really no if you peal the apples lady then rush will nuke Americans and no you can’t make it with out pineapple or the world will flood are ppl really that stupid yes you can leak the freaking apples why couldn’t you make it with out one if the ingredients she made the shit up in her head why can’t you this is what tasted best to her you could add freaking tuna fish to it if you wanted bet it be nasty but you could do it if you wanted lmfao ppl crack me up….on the plus side my girls at the store and i sent her this list can’t wait to make it this shit looks amazing thanks for the great idea sorry about my poor response but ppl kill me I can see the ? About the whole cream but the rest are pure stupidity
Can you use already made vanilla pudding in a container?
I suppose you could.
Oh my goodness!!!! This. Looks. Amazing!! I don’t see a lot of fruit salads that look good because of the creamy element. But this….looks like something I could devour…especially with the Twix!!!
Can it be made with real whipped cream?
Homemade yes, but not out of a can.
Has anyone tried it without pineapple as my daughter is not a fan & some others I know that are not either.Thank you
You can leave the pineapple out.
Can I make this the night before I need it?
Can the green apples be peeled? I have a few “picky” eaters. Thank yoy.
Yes, but they are more likely to turn brown.
For the Twix Apple Salad: is the crushed pineapple, drained? Thank you!
Nope! Use the whole can.
