Apple Nachos

Have I told you how much I love Fall? Yup, it's true.
My favorite time of the year! October being my favorite
month. These apple nachos are like a simplified caramel
apple. Messy and fabulous. I could not stop eating it.
No one, had will power over these. You won't be able to
stop yourself either.

Apple Nachos
36 caramels
1 tbsp. water
30 large marshmallows
1/3 cup butter, cubed
4 tart apples, sliced
1/3 cup dry roasted peanuts
1/3 cup of miniature semisweet chocolate chips
3 tbsp Halloween sprinkles

In a microwave safe bowl, melt caramels with water.
Stir until smooth.
Meanwhile, In a large saucepan, melt marshmallows
and butter. Arrange apple slices on a large platter.
Drizzle with caramel. Top with marshmallow mixture.
Sprinkle with peanuts, chocolate chips and sprinkles.
Serve immediately. Taste of home.

  1. Wow!! I have never heard of something like this! My son Cullan would LOVE these!! I am definitely going to have to try making them sometime- if I dare! Caramel apples dipped in dark chocolate with almonds are a major favorite for me and I have a hard time not eating too much!! I rationalize that they are fruit...so it's okay... These look delicious~You always share the best recipes! :)
