As promised, I’m back with another version of the Apple Snicker Bar Salad from a few weeks ago!

And I must say, in my book, this version is an upgrade. Take 5s are one of my favorite – maybe even THE absolute favorite – candy bars, and they pair pretty perfectly with a bowl of apples and pudding. Mixing them up in this salad also prevents me from consuming a whole bag of minis all by myself. In theory.

I’ve already been to Target this week to scour the 50% off candy offerings, and I definitely didn’t leave the store empty-handed. I like to think I’m pretty disciplined, but when there’s a bowl of crunchy, chocolaty, sweet, salty, peanut-buttery, caramel-y candy bars staring at me, my discipline tends to wane.

So at least I can feel better about eating them with a side of green apples.

Adding Take 5 bars makes for my favorite version of this salad, but you may think otherwise, depending on what your candy of choice is!

Anyone else grow up eating this classic?

This is picnic and potluck food at its finest. It’s not high-class cuisine by any means and you won’t find it served at any formal event. But it’s easy, it feeds a crowd, it calls for chopped candy bars and it’s still considered a “salad.” This is an all-around win.

I’m not going to lie to you: these aren’t the most figure-friendly brownies on the planet.

They also are not baked entirely from scratch.

Or the neatest. Messy fingers are headed your way in 3, 2…

So! Now that I’ve sold you on them for sure (😉), here’s what they DO have to offer you and your taste buds:

Beef Sliders with Jalapeños and Honey Butter

Have I mentioned my obsession with honey butter?

I mean, do I need to? I know few people who can resist the stuff at Texas Roadhouse. It kind of goes without saying.

I have a sweet tooth for sure, but I also like mixing sweet flavors with unexpected ones – salt, for one, but also spice.
