An Easy Apple Dessert

My kids come home from school starving, and this little snack always gets rave reviews! Apple nachos are a delicious treat that you can make year-round, but we especially love them in the fall. Nothing like a crisp apple covered in delicious chocolate and candy toppings, am I right?

Best part is, making Apple Nachos doesn’t get any easier! Simply layer slices of apples on a plate, top with any other fruit you have on-hand (bananas and strawberries are a great addition), drizzle with chocolate and caramel sauce, then sprinkle with candies, nuts, or coconut flakes (that’s my favorite!)

In literally 5 minutes you can have a fresh and filling snack that’ll curb after school hunger, or put a smile on the face of any guests or visitors. (These apple nachos are also one of my favorite treats to make for a family movie night! YUM!)

How To Make Apple Nachos

Slice & Dice – Slice your apples into wedges and arrange them on a plate.  If you prefer them without the skin, or just want a fun way to cut them, try one of these cool apple peelers.

Melt & Drizzle – Using a microwave-safe bowl, melt your chocolate chips in the microwave and then drizzle the chocolate over the top of the apples.  I also like to warm up some caramel and pour that over the top of the apples as well.

Fully Loaded – Add any additional toppings that you like to make your apple nachos as delicious as possible.  I like to add slices of bananas or strawberries and the sprinkle shredded coconut over the top.  You can also add peanut butter chips, nuts, candy bar pieces, cinnamon or whipped cream on top.  The possibilities are endless!
