  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 small container cool whip
  • 8 cups chopped apples approx 5 medium apples
  • 4 chocolate and caramel candy bars I used Milky Way
  • 1-3 tbsp caramel topping


  • Using either a stand mixer or hand beaters, combine the cream cheese and brown sugar. Beat until smooth and no longer grainy.
  • Fold the Cool Whip into the cream cheese mixture, set aside.
  • Chop the apples and candy bars.
  • Combine the Cool Whip mixture with the apples and candy bars.
  • Drizzle the caramel topping over the top and serve. Make sure to keep refrigerated!!
  • Alternate Caramel use: You can drizzle the caramel throughout the salad if you'd like a bit more caramel in your salad. You can do this by putting a small amount of salad into the serving bowl and then drizzling with caramel before stacking more salad on top. Repeat this until all of the salad is in the serving bowl.
