Layers of crunchy apples, creamy cheesecake, and candy bars make this Apple Snickers Cheesecake Trifle an impressive no bake dessert. Perfect dessert for summer picnics or dinners.

Our local grocery store offers a free cart service for their shoppers. As a recipe developer I frequent the grocery stores a few times a week. One of these days, they are going to remember who I am. Most of the times when I am there I'm weating workout gear and a hat pulled down low. There are a few times when I head to the store that I am actually ready for the day and wearing normal clothes. Plus, I rotate stores each time I go too. Fingers crossed this keeps me from being remembered.
What will get me remembered is if I actually take advantage of the cart service. You see, I have a very bad habit of parking my car, grabbing my groceries, and forgetting where I parked. And that's all in the time frame of about 30 minutes. I usually refuse the free grocery carry out and tell them I got it.
Not because I don't want the help, but because I don't want them to laugh at me when I can't find my car. Trust me, I'm sure that could be a hot topic in the break room. Or maybe I'm just paranoid, but whatever the case I'm not going to chance it. I'll continue to wander around the parking lot loaded down with all my bags rather than be giggled at.
Now usually when I go to the store, it's because I ran out of one item that I absolutely need for a recipe that I'm in the middle of. This trifle happened to be one of these recipes that had to be put on hold for a 3o minute break while I ran to the store quickly.
You see I thought for sure I had an extra jar of caramel in my pantry, but it turned out to be hot fudge. I apparently didn't look too closely to the label and just assumed it was caramel. And of course, the jar in the fridge was almost empty too because my family has been having ice cream sundaes and has been dipping their apples in caramel.
We always have bags of apples in our refrigerator ready to be dipped in caramel because I am a brand ambassador for Crunch Pak. We also like to use their apples in delicious things like snickerdoodle apple cake or glazed cinnamon apple donuts.
I love having these pre-sliced apples available for our kids to grab whenever they get hungry. Their favorites are the little snack packs that have cheese, pretzels, and apple slices. All three of our teenagers will fight over who gets the last one. Those cute little snack packs are not only for little kids. Big kids love them too.
This month I decided to create a fancy dessert using the mixed apples in our fridge. The best part about this apple Snickers cheesecake trifle is that it is entirely no bake. Using a pre-made angel food cake and no bake cheesecake filling makes it such an easy dessert to put together.
Cutting everything up will take you longer than actually putting your dessert together. To save some time on this dessert, I cut the cake and candy bars up the night before. Then the next day, I just had to make the cheesecake filling, dice the apples, and make it look pretty in the big bowl.
Cheesecake trifles are one of those awesome desserts that make everyone say "wow!". I think the layers must make it seem impressive or something.
We will let everyone think we slaved over the dessert. Don't tell them our little no bake secret. Just smile and nod when everyone starts oooohing and aaahhhing!

* Crunch Pak apples compensated me for my time as a brand ambassador. All opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own.
I have eaten an apple snicker salad before that is very similar. I loved it. I will try this method of using the same ingredients, adding cake, and layering it in my truffle bowl. My only complaint was I had to scroll past all kinds of stuff, chit chat, ads, etc., to get to the recipe! Very annoying.
I hope you enjoy the recipe. I think layering it in a trifle bowl sounds delicious. Also, I am sorry that scrolling past the ads and blog post are annoying to you. I do support my family with this blog, so they are necessary for me to continue providing free recipes for everyone to make and enjoy.
Is this recipe to good to make ahead? The night before serving?
Yes, you could make it the night before and it will be fine the next day. I would add the final layer of Cool Whip, caramel drizzles, and extra candy bars right before serving though. That way you can cover the trifle bowl easier while it is in the fridge overnight. I hope you enjoy the dessert!
I've never been so excited about apples 🙂
This recipe looks amazing. I will make it for my next "bring a dessert".
