Apple Nachos

Close up of this naughty apple goodness!

I think I am in LOVE! I know I am on a sugar high/rush since I haven’t had much over the last few weeks. My friend Lizabeth was talking to me the other day and I’m not sure how we got on the topic of food since we are both doing this “Biggest Losers” challenge but we did. She told that she had seen this apple nacho thing on Pinterest and told me that I needed to try it. (I think she was trying to get back at me since I am always telling her that I am going to bring her naughty baked goods from my kitchen.)

Anyway, she pinned the picture and made sure to comment so I would see it. Oh that naughty Liz! Is she in trouble now!! I kept thinking about those nacho apples and knowing I had half a case of honey crisp apples and some granny smith apples from my Bountiful Basket contribution, I was trapped! I couldn’t resist any longer and had to make them up tonight for my family (and me) to try! All I can say is BEWARE it is addicting and I had a hard time walking away from them after a few slices!

Apple Nachos

Apple Nachos

Ingredients

  • 2 honey crisp apples
  • 2 granny smith apples
  • 2 gala apples
  • 1 (11oz) bag caramel bits (you can unwrap about 40 regular caramels but I couldn’t find them in my grocery store.)
  • 1 small bags mini marshmallows
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 large Butterfinger candy bar broken into pieces (or I bet a Heath toffee bar would be good too)
  • White Chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. I've seen this recipe with apples that were quartered. I thinly sliced mine to make ¼” inch thick to make it more chip like then wedges. With that being said, slice your apples to the thickness you want. I don’t think it matters.
  2. Lay your apples out on a plate or platter.
  3. In a saucepan over low heat put the caramel bits and the tablespoon of water. Melt the caramels stirring them often.
  4. In another saucepan, melt the mini marshmallows with the butter, stirring often as well.
  5. Once these are both melted, pour or drizzle over your apples slices. I poured mine over the apples and it looks messy to me. I think doing more of a drizzling with a spoon will make it look prettier if you are making them for a party. Since mine were just for the family, pouring worked out great!
  6. Then add some of your white chocolate chips and the pieces of candy bar. Now you are ready to dig in for some yummy goodness!
  7. This is super easy to make. My 6 year old Thomas had fun helping me make them too.

    I don’t know who would be madder at me, my Weight Watchers leader, my doc who treats my Type 2 diabetes, or my hubby for wasting money going to Weight Watchers in the first place. LOL. That looks absolutely scrumptious!!!!!! I think this will go on my bucket list at the very least. Oh my!!!!!! I have to have something to look forward to, right? Thank you for sharing this delicious dish!!!!!!

    I have another version of this you may want to try. Cut up apples into wedges, drizzle caramel ice cream topping or caramel sauce over, on top of the caramel drizzle Nutella and top it off with chopped peanuts. I use the dry roasted ones but any will do. It’s very simple and oh so yummy.
