Caramel Apple Salad

Recommended Posts

Caramel Apple Salad

 

5 med. Granny Smith or Braeburn apples, cored & chopped

1 8oz. can unsweetened crushed pineapple, DON’T drain it!

1 1oz. box sugar-free instant butterscotch pudding

1 8oz. container fat-free Cool Whip (15 cal. X 25 servings = 375 cal./ 7=53=1pt.)

chopped peanuts (optional)

 

Mix first 3 ingredients well. Gently fold in Cool Whip. Chill.

Sprinkle peanuts on top when served if you want (but count the extra points).

 

Total pts.=7 Yield—app. 7 cups 2 pts. per cup!!!

(Add pts. for peanuts if you use them)

 

Ginny’s comments: The original recipe calls for adding 1 cup miniature marshmallows but I HATE marshmallows!! Besides, it ups the points value a lot! If you don’t like pineapple, I have also made this with unsweetened apple sauce—I used one of the individually packed containers—probably ½ C. This is a seriously yummy “dessert” that also helps you get in your fruit if you’re not a big fruit lover.

I made this AGAIN for my Christmas dinner this year, and like the little girl on TV says "It's still good"!! This is so good, you just can't go wrong with it and it's soooo easy to make, with or without the marshmellows, it's a keeper.

I have been using FF Caramel topping to get my caramel apple fix. Now I can use this. I tried it tonight and once it is chilled, it tastes just like caramel apples. Who knew?

I wonder if this would work without the Cool Whip. I don't eat the stuff, but I LOVE butterscotch pudding.

I guess I'm the only person who didn't think this was great. I love caramel apples, but this was waaaaaaaay too sweet for me and I'm not sure that the color of butterscotch pudding is found in nature! I didn't add the marshmellows, so maybe that would have made a difference but I'm thinking it would have been even sweeter! Anyway, I toned down the sweetness by adding a bunch of nonfat plain yogurt (which also toned down the color!) but I don't think I would make it again.

Hey Joanne,

 

I wonder what else might work instead.

 

I don't eat Cool Whip either - not because I don't like it, because I can't eat it it like a lady!! LOL It just makes me want MORE!!!! :crazy:
