If you're like me and prefer to use all-natural foods, you can make this salad with any chocolate and peanut candy bar you like. And you can use a frozen whipped topping without hydrogenated oils (Tru-Whip is one).
I like to use Granny Smith apples for this recipe, because the tartness balances the sweetness of the candy bars beautifully.
