If you have been on social media in the past few months, you may have seen the emergence of a new food trend: candy salad.

Yes, you heard that right – a salad made entirely out of candy! While it may sound like something a child would dream up, it has quickly become a popular trend among adults as well, especially on platforms like TikTok. In this blog, we will walk you through how to make your own candy salad. You will see why this trend is worth trying for both its sweet taste and creative presentation.

To make your own candy salad, you will need a few key ingredients: sweet tarts, sour patch kids, airheads, nerd balls, and any other sour gummy candies of your choice. It is important to note that you will not need any dressing, fruit, or other traditional salad ingredients for this recipe. We promise it’s simpler than it sounds!

Start by selecting a few handfuls of each candy and placing them in a large mixing bowl.

Mix the candies together to create a colorful array of sweet and sour flavors. You can even add in some additional toppings like crushed candy canes or sprinkles if you want to get extra fancy with your presentation.

Next, transfer the candy salad to a serving dish of your choice.

We recommend using a clear glass bowl or jar to show off the vibrant colors and textures. You can also add some decorative touches like floral accents or candy skewers for a festive look.

In terms of serving, candy salad is a fun and unique dessert option for any occasion. You could bring it to a potluck or party, or even serve it at home with your family.. Plus, it is a great way to use up any leftover candy you may have from holidays or special events.
