Caramel Apple Nachos
One of my favorite fall desserts is Caramel Apples! We have this little place down the road called the Apple Barn that sells fresh baked items, produce, flowers, pumpkins and Caramel Apples, of course! They are delicious!
I love that when we visit, it’s like taking a step back in time with an old-time country store feel. They make Caramel Apples fresh daily and bring them out from the back on a big tray that you can help yourself to. It’s also great for little hands to grab.
I can’t tell you how many apples I’ve had to buy because a little finger goes right into the gooey caramel! ha! But, who can blame them! My kids LOVE them!
They have plain caramel apples, topped with nuts, drizzled with chocolate and more!
I have always been intimidated by making my own Caramel Apples at home – melting down the caramel and not burning it, sticking sticks into the apples and trying to dip them so they don’t fall off and then adding all the toppings. It can be a big mess!
So I came up with this EASY way to make them with zero mess and fuss!
How To Make Caramel Apple Nachos
It’s easy! To make Caramel Apple Nachos, you just pick out your favorite apple – I like a little bit of a tart apple for this so I go with an in-season green apple – and slice it up into “nacho” size pieces. This isn’t an on the go treat, so just add to a pretty plate and everyone can grab a few slices!
And, this may come as a surprise to you, but I don’t melt caramels on the stove for this recipe. I actually use Caramel Ice Cream Topping in a jar! Yep! That’s the easy way to go and it stays all nice and gooey instead of hardening up.
I then add my favorite toppings – mini chocolate chips and toffee bits – and lots of them!!
You can add your favorite toppings, too, OR make a DIY Caramel Apple Bar! Just slice up the apples and put out a jar of Caramel Sauce and lots of toppings for people to add their own. How fun is that??!
Some other topping ideas:
- Melted Peanut Butter and Chocolate
- Cookie Crumbles
- Mini M&M’s
- Crushed Up Various Candy Bars
- Cinnamon & Sugar
— And MORE!
This Caramel Apple Nachos Recipe is SURE to become a family favorite in your home as much as it is in mine! Enjoy!!
