Caramel Apple Slices

Family Favorite Caramel Apple Nachos

Hello – it’s me, Lily! Last week I mentioned that we made a yummy treat for movie night. It was Caramel Apple Nachos, and it was DELICIOUS!! We’ve had caramel apples before, but never as nachos, which were kind of like caramel apple slices! Mom said we could put on some of our favorite treats, so we put on caramel, white chocolate, mini chocolate chips and toffee bits!! We ate the whole thing in just like 10 minutes!! They were a little messy so I helped my little sister, Evie, eat them. 🙂

If you like Caramel Apples, then you will love this recipe. We used slices of red apples and green apples. The red apples are a little bit sweeter, but I still like both kinds! My mom said it’s much easier to make than Caramel Apples! I think so too!! Plus they’re just as tasty. I think we need to make this EVERY family night. My dad was out of town when we made this, so I’m excited to make it again for him. I think he’ll love it because he likes caramel apples just like mom!

Apple Nachos Recipe

How to make Apple Nachos:

Start by preparing the heath bits and mini chips by putting them into separate bowls. It’s important to have these all ready so they can be sprinkled on as soon as the caramel and white chocolate are on. Next, cut a ziploc bag at the corner – you will eventually use it to drizzle the white chocolate. Cut your apples right before working on the candy coating and caramel so they do not brown, then place on your prepared dish.

Unwrap caramels and place in small pot with 1 TB water. Heat on low-medium temp until melted. (Or if you opt to use Ice Cream Caramel Topping skip this step). At the same time, melt white chocolate by placing candy coating in a small pot on low heat and stirring constantly until melted and smooth. Place in ziploc bag with cut corner as soon as it’s done. Drizzle white chocolate and caramel on as soon as they are melted and smooth. Sprinkle toppings (toffee bits and mini chips) on immediately, and serve right away.

Some other topping ideas:

  • Peanut Butter Drizzle
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Cinnamon sugar
  • Crushed nuts
  • Butterscotch Chips
  • Crushed OREOs
  • Reese’s Pieces
  • Crushed Graham Cracker
  • Shredded Coconut

    I would like to try but replacing the white chocolate chips with peanut butter chips, i love chocolate and peanut butter together and i love peanut butter on apples.

    Raine

      Oh, you’ll love it. Seriously one of the best and easiest treats you’ll ever make. 😉

    How do you get your caramel to stay drizzled on? I tried today in prep for a party and used Hershey’s caramel syrup and it came right off and puddled on dish. Maybe because I soaked apples in lemon water so they don’t turn brown, or apple cold, syrup being room temp?

      Lil' Luna

      Hmmm…. I’d imagine if they were wet it would drizzle right off. I would soak them in the lemon water but let them dry before adding the caramel.

    These were GREAT! 🙂 We used them as part of our Kindergarten apple unit study. So much easier than making caramel apples.

    Hi Lily! I am a Girl Scout troop leader with a multi-level troop, with girls from Kindergarten to 7th grade. One of my co-leaders made these with our Daisy and Brownie Scouts. We used Golden Delicious and Fuji apples and strawberries, but left off the toffee bits. The girls all loved it so much we forgot to take a picture! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

    Hi! I came across this recipe on Pinterest and just had to test it out as a snack at my most recent Crafty Club. It was easy to make, easy enough that my 3 1/2 year old helped out with it 🙂 And it was a hit at the party. The ladies thought it was so pretty. I hope you don’t mind — I linked back to your page with the recipe here: http://www.lifeaswegoit.com/2015/11/bags-and-tags.html — thanks again for the great idea!

      Lil' Luna

      I’m so glad you liked it!! Have a great Thanksgiving!!
