About Caramel Apple Nachos

If you love caramel apples but not the struggle of how to eat them gracefully (c’mon, you know what I mean) then these caramel apple nachos are your best bet.

And, you guys, I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to discover these delicious dessert nachos, because, you see…  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, I’m sure 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. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one here who’s pretty 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 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.

Or gravity.

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 transforming that candy apple into an apple nachos recipe: cut apples topped with caramel and white chocolate and topped with crumbled up Heath bars.

Yes, dessert nachos are actually a thing that exists in the world.

And it’s glorious.

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, right?

And for two, I still had most of the ingredients left over from the Apple Brickle Dip I made and all the fun holiday recipes I’ve posted in the last week.

The only thing I was missing was the fresh apples, and (you guessed it!) they were on sale this week.

So, you see, this apple nachos recipe was like fate. A tasty sweet apple nacho fate.

I’ll totally be serving this the next time we get together with friends! They’re the perfect finger food for celebrating fall in good company.

notes & tips for these dessert nachos

  • If you’re totally relating to me on the klutziness I described in this post, then you’ll probably agree that cutting apples can be a less-than-perfect event. I like to keep an apple slicer handy for just these occasions!

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.

Ingredients 

  • 6 medium apples, sliced to 1/2 to 1 inch thick

  • Serve immediately.

    Um, yum! These look so tasty! I’m hoping the pumpkin craze is over and we will start to see more apple dishes popping up 😉

    • Joanie @ Zagleft

    I’m not a fan of candied apples either simply because they’re so hard to bite into. These, on the other hand are perfect. Such a great idea, easy to make and something everyone would love!

    • EXACTLY Joanie! At least there’s a compromise with recipes like this 😀

    • Kimberly @ The Daring Gourmet

    What a great idea! This sounds perfect for a relatively healthy snack you don’t have to feel TOO guilty about!

    • Branson

    What a fun and creative idea! Looks yummy!

    • Christine | Vermilion Roots

    I most definitely need to make this for my kids, hopefully they’ll get some heath bars in their halloween candy ;). I pretty much love anything with white chocolate so I’ll be snacking right along next to them!

    • Thanks Sara! Hopefully the girls scored some Heath bars this year 😀

    Looks easy and crowd-pleasing! To me fall is more about apples than pumpkin 😀

    • Thanks Shadi! Apple feels like the underdog of the fall, but that just makes me root for them more.
