Caramel Apple Salad

I love the combination of caramel and apples, but it's usually thought of as a treat for the fall.  Well not anymore!  The combination of the caramel candy and  crunchy apples pairs perfectly with the light and tangy cream cheese caramel filling.  So good!


Caramel Apple Salad

4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup thick caramel topping
2 Tbl sugar
pinch of salt
1 ctn cool whip
3 fuji apples
1 Tbl lemon juice
1/2 cup water
12 fun size milky way bars, chopped

Directions
In a large bowl use a mixer to combine cream cheese, 1/2 cup of caramel, sugar, and salt
Gently fold in cool whip
Core apples and cut into desired size chunks
In a small bowl mix water and lemon juice together and add apples
Drain off water and blot apples dry with a towel
(This will keep the apples from turning brown)
Fold apples and candy into cream cheese mixture
Drizzle remaining 1/4 cup of caramel on top
If desired reserve some of the candy for a garnish on top
Refrigerate until ready to serve
