Is your dessert routine getting stale? Looking for a new treat that is tart, creamy and sweet? Try this deliciously easy trifle made with Snickers, green apples, caramel and fluffy layers of whipped cream cheese.

When I came across this pin by my sister I knew I had to make it. As a lover of green apples and Snickers, the fact that I had never before combined them baffled me. So, following directions from DessertedPlanet, I whipped this tasty treat up. If you are looking for a new, quick and not too costly dessert idea give this one a whirl. Keep in mind that it yields a lot, so it is best served with a crowd... or not.

Tips

  • This makes a lot! You can half the recipe and make it in a smaller dish. Presentation may not be the same, but it will taste just as delicious!
  • Make and serve the same day. Even with refrigeration the Cool Whip causes it to become runny the next day. Again, just as delicious, but presentation isn't nearly as nice.
