Raise your hand if you like caramel apples? Yeah, me too! Apple Nachos were born from a lifelong love of biting into a crisp apple surrounded in gooey caramel.
I was under the delusion that what I call “Apple Nachos ” would somehow be easier to eat than a traditional caramel apple.
I could have just sliced up some apples, covered them in caramel and had a delicious snack. However, I wanted to make these truly “nacho” like! That meant, I needed a sauce to be the “cheese”.
4 large Granny Smith apples, sliced
35 large marshmallows
¼ cup butter
35 caramels, unwrapped
1 Tablespoon evaporated milk (or half and half)
¼ cup peanuts
¼ cup mini semi-sweet morsels
2 Tablespoons chocolate syrup
Slice apples and arrange on platter.
In saucepan, melt marshmallows and butter until creamy. Set aside.
In microwave dish, melt caramels with milk (cooking in 30 second intervals, and stirring). Set aside.
Pour marshmallow cream over apple slices, followed by caramel sauce. Drizzle chocolate syrup and sprinkle with peanuts and mini chocolate morsels. Serve immediately and enjoy!
