OMG! What a big hit at our Thanksgiving dinner. Didn’t use the milk like others suggested, used butterscotch pudding mix, and Granny Smith apples. Just sprinkled the pudding mix on the apples, it worked great. Yum!

Yum! Made with my youth cooking class and we all enjoyed. Other moms mentioned they have used different pudding flavors (caramel, butterscotch, chocolate) or added some TBSPs of creamy peanut butter to the vanilla pudding. But anyway you make, easy and delicious. Next time I would add some chopped nuts for crunch, but tasty as is.

My daughter-in-laws nieces friend really loved this recipe, some even fell on the floor and the dog loved it too! I recommend adding 3 tbsp of sour cream to balance the sweetness and to thicken up the recipe. I also love my personal spin on the recipe by substituting the snickers with diced red hot candys.

I tried this but so sweet we couldn't even taste the apples (I used granny smiths so tartness would offset the sweetness). I have made it in the past using only frozen whipped topping and no pudding which cuts down on the sweetness and allows the apples' flavor to come through.

I recently took this to a church potluck and the people loved it so much I had to go home and print out the recipe to share. My family had me make more the next day!

I made this yesterday to take to a salad supper and it was a hit. So much so that I had ladies coming up wanting the recipe. I think next time I will decrease the milk as it is not as fluffy as I like. However, the flavor was wonderful. The ladies loved it. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home.

My son had this at a potluck and has been asking me to make it for him. Couldn't be any easier. I like the idea of omitting the milk. May try that next time.
