"Have your candy apple the easy way - diced up into bite sized pieces then topped with caramel sauce, white chocolate, and crumbled Heath candy bars."
Nothing says fall quite like caramel and apples… however, I gotta admit, I’ve never been a big fan of candy apples.
I know, I know – what in the world is wrong with me?
Well, okay, there’s probably plenty of things wrong with me, but for me and candy apples, we can’t be friends because… I’m a klutz. Like, impossible to walk in a straight line on a flat surface kind of klutz. So klutz-like that I might just fall right out of my chair for no good reason. So, you can imagine how intimidating a sticky and top heavy fruit balanced on the end of a tiny stick would be for someone like me. Seriously, I can’t be the only one here who’s dubious about this highly questionable design for a snack food.
The only time I can really enjoy a candy apple is when I’m alone, with the candy apple is securely stuck to a plate, making it easy for me to cut off bite-sized pieces. It’s also best if I find a comfy spot on the floor while I eat, since I apparently have poor luck with chairs. I am wielding a knife, after all; don’t want to tempt fate.
But all hope is not lost!
My fellow klutzes of the world can still enjoy apples and caramel in the light of day… we just have to be a little more crafty in the delivery.
Like, say, by turning that candy apple into apple nachos: cut apples drizzled with caramel and white chocolate and topped with crumbled up Heath bars.
Yes, this is actually a thing.
This recipe came about in a couple different ways.
For one, I saw tons of my friends sharing the idea on Facebook, and that many people simply can’t be wrong.
The only thing I was missing was the fresh apples, and (you guessed it!) they were on sale this week.
So, as you can see, this recipe was like fate.
Tasty sweet apple nacho fate.
I’ll totally be serving this the next time we get together with friends!
Caramel Apple Nachos
- 6 medium apples sliced to 1/2 to 1 inch thick
- 3 heath bars crushed and crumbled
- 1/2 cup white candy melts
- caramel sauce such as the type used for ice cream
Prepare your toppings first - have crushed Heath bars and caramel sauce handy. Also, microwave white candy melts per package instructions and pour them in a plastic bag. Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag.
Cut apples and arranged as desired on a large serving dish.
Drizzle caramel sauce on top, followed by white candy melts, then quickly sprinkled with heath bar crumbles.
