Caramel Apple Nachos
Gourmet Apple Nachos with white chocolate, chocolate chips, caramel sauce and chopped nuts. Make this fun dessert for an after school snack, dessert or holiday party.
It’s rich, sweet, juicy, tart and a little salty and savory with the addition of peanuts. One of my favorite combinations is chocolate and peanuts. Last year, I tried my hand at Gourmet Caramel Apples and I swear, the peanuts and chocolate make the apples.
Get in the spirit this season and enjoy the classic fall flavors of caramel and apple. Celebrate the harvest by preparing this dish everyone will love.
This recipe is super simple and easy to make and the apple are to die for! While it may seem like the perfect fall dessert, this dessert is great year round. It’s especially popular as a game day appetizer.
Really any kind of apples will do but I’ve used my favorite, Pink Lady apples. They taste with just a hint of sweetness to them. It’s not for everyone, but they are definitely irresistible. I’ve also paired Granny Smith apples to match the flavor. Honey Crisp apples are also great to use. The apples are extra large but small ones will do.
It’s no wonder that everyone looks forward to this time of year and it’s a constant favorite. To me, autumn is all about the transition of summer to fall.
Apples are a fun food. They go great in baked goods like apple pies, Caramel Apple Crisp, cakes & cupcakes, drinks, dip. Savory dishes like casseroles, baked chicken and cheese boards are also a fun way to use those same flavors.
Plus, you’ll love this homemade caramel sauce topping for these apples and other fall desserts!
