Caramel Apple Nachos are easily made by topping sliced apples with caramel, melted marshmallows, chocolate chips and sprinkles!

Caramel Apple Nachos are the perfect fall treat! I love fall and I LOVE caramel apples.  I recently saw this idea for making caramel apples “nacho style” and I couldn’t wait to try it.  It’s simple, delicious, and you can add as many (or as few) toppings as you’d like.  I kept this version pretty plain, but I think they would be delicious with chopped nuts, crushed candy bars, hot fudge – the possibilities are endless! The end result is a lot easier to eat than a traditional caramel apple too…although still a little messy!

My kids love having these Caramel Apple Nachos as a snack or dessert, but this is also the perfect recipe to take to a party! If you are planning to prepare these more than a few minutes before devouring them, make sure to toss your apple slices in a little bit of cold water mixed with 1-2 Tbsp of lemon juice before topping them. This will prevent the apples from getting brown and will keep them looking pretty and fresh!

How do you melt the caramels for caramel apples?

Microwave the caramels in a glass bowl in 30-45 second intervals, stirring in between each interval until the mixture is completely melted and smooth. I prefer to use the microwave because it is so fast and easy, but you can also melt caramels over the stove. Melt over medium-low heat in a heavy saucepan, stirring constantly until melted and smooth.

What kinds of toppings are used for caramel apples?

Caramel apples (and caramel apple nachos) are fun because the possibilities for toppings are endless. Some of my favorite ideas include: chopped nuts, crushed Oreos, mini chocolate chips, sprinkles, and crushed candy bars (Kit Kats, Snickers, Milky Way, etc).

CARAMEL APPLE NACHOS

30 large marshmallows

5 Tbsp butter

35 caramels

1 Tbsp water

4-5 apples, sliced

toppings (peanuts, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, crushed candy bars, etc)

Melt the marshmallows and butter in a saucepan over low heat.  Stir periodically until completely melted and smooth.

Combine the caramels and water in a bowl and microwave until melted.  I microwaved mine in 45 second intervals, stirring in between until the caramel was smooth.

Arrange the sliced apples on a plate and pour the caramel and marshmallow mixtures over them.  Add any additional toppings and serve immediately!  Enjoy!
