Ingredients

  • 2 3.4 oz boxes caramel instant pudding mix
  • 4 cups half & half
  • 1 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 4 cups Granny Smith apples small diced
  • 1 10 oz package fun size Milky Way Simply Caramel candy bars, unwrapped and cubed
  • 2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows divided
  • 1 cup salted peanuts roughly chopped and divided
  • 1 16 oz frozen whipped topping, thawed OR 4 cups sweetened fresh whipped cream
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup quality caramel ice cream topping or dulce de leche warmed to drizzle consistency
  • 1/3 cup bits-o-brickle toffee bits

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, whip together the pudding mix and half & half until thickened but, still pourable.
  • Add the cream cheese. Continue to whip for 2-3 minutes or until completely smooth.
  • By hand fold in the apples, 2 cups marshmallows, 1/2 cubed candy bars and 3/4 cup peanuts. Mix into the pudding until evenly distributed.
  • Fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping. (Or 2 cups whipped cream) Pour into a 9 x 13-inch dish.
  • In a microwave safe dish melt together the chocolate chips and heavy cream in 20 second increments stopping to stir each time. Repeat until smooth.
  • Frost the top with the remaining whipped topping.
  • Arrange the remaining cubed candy bar, 1/4 cup peanuts, bits-o-brickle and 1/2 cup marshmallows over the whipped topping. Drizzle with melted chocolate and caramel.
  • Chill for 4 hours prior to serving. Store leftovers chilled.

Notes

Note: If unable to find caramel pudding use one of these two options:
  1. Substitute 2 (3.4 oz) boxes cheesecake pudding mix instead. Use 8 oz caramel syrup or ice cream topping in place of one cup of half & half to make the pudding then, proceed with the recipe as written.
  2. Use 2(3.4 oz) boxes butterscotch flavored instant pudding.
