I made them for Halloween this year and they were so good!!!! I literally crave them now and find myself making them for a snack at least once a week for everyone in my family. The best part of this snack is that once you buy one bag of everything you need in the recipe you can make these nachos multiple times!

If you have never made apple nachos before I highly recommend this recipe. It takes 5-10 minutes to make these and they are so good, people will be asking you for the recipe, guaranteed! Also, have fun and be creative if you are not a fan of the ingredients in this recipe, create your own version with chocolate hot sauce, melted peanut butter or marshmallow fluff- there are endless possibilities to how these apple nachos can be made.

Instructions

  • If using real caramels, add 1Tablespoon water to 10-15 caramels and melt in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 15-sec intervals until just melted and then drizzle over apples. If using caramel container using a large spoon just drizzle a few spoonfuls over apples.
  • Place 1/4 to 1/2 cup white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 15-sec intervals until softened then stir with a spatula until melted. Drizzle over apples- be generous here, thicker drizzle is best.
  • Take a few handfuls of the semi-sweet chocolate chips and Heath english toffee bites and sprinkle over apples, caramels and chocolate. Try and get pieces to stick to warmed caramels and chocolate.
  • For added crunch or flavor add crushed peanuts or walnuts
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

There are so many variations of this recipe you can do. If you don’t like something swap it out for something you do enjoy. Ex: Use warmed peanut butter instead of caramel drizzle. Crush up snickers bars and sprinkle those on top instead of Heath english toffee bites. Take out white chocolate chips and add chocolate fudge sauce. Add marshmellow fluff in middle for dipping. Choose the treats you enjoy and create your own apple nachos!
