  • 4 large
    tart apples
  • 30
    caramels, unwrapped
  • 30 large
  • 1/3 c
    butter (not margarine) cubed
  • 1/3 c
    miniature milk chocolate chips
  • 1/3 c
    chopped pecans (or any other nut)
  • 1 Tbsp
  • ·
    lemon juice (to prevent the apples from browning)

How to Make Apple Nachos


  1. Core the apples and slice them in 1/4 inch slices. Rub each slice with lemon juice or a fresh lemon wedge to prevent browning. Arrange apple slices on a large platter.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the caramels with the water, storing until smooth. I use the high setting at 15 second increments.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan melt the marshmallows and butter. Stir frequently to preven scorching.
  4. Drizzle melted caramel over apple slices, then melted marshmallows, then sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuts. Serve immediately!!
  5. For an extra spooky halloween snack, you could use halloween sprinkles. I love to add coconut, but one family member is allergic so no coconut for this family! Use whatever you like---simply delicious and simply simple!!

    Not sure where this originated, but I've been making it for about 10 years and my family loves loves loves it!
