Apple Nachos

4.04.2013

If you know me you know I love crack apples... and if you don't know me you are now wondering, why does Deidre love crack? Well. By crack I mean caramel apples, and not just any, the ones specifically from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory that are so addicting I would compare them to a drug. Adam, being the smart man he is, decided to surprise me with a treat on Sunday. Not just a treat. An apple nacho treat. Combining my two favorite things. Nachos and caramel apples. Apple nachos. Not with cheese. With caramel and chocolate. We are still working on perfecting our nacho combo but for now all I can say is it was SO good.

INGREDIENTS
6 Apples || We used Granny Smith
Chocolate flavored Almond bark
Caramel Sauce
Toppings (optional)

There are two options for caramel
A jar of premade caramel
or
6 Minute Microwave Caramel
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
I prefer a jar of caramel because it doesnt stiffen like the microwave caramel

Toppings Ideas
Reeses
Oreos
Nuts
Peanut Butter sauce
Chocolate Chips
Coconut
Sprinkles

Directions for 6 Minute Caramel
Combine all ingredients together into a microwave safe bowl
Microwave for 6 minutes taking it out every 2 minutes and stirring ingredients together.
Towards the end of the 6 minutes the bowl will be VERY hot, have a hot mitt on hand.
If you make this caramel don't make it until you ready to assemble the nachos.

Assemble the Nachos
Cut apples and core apples into 16 slim slices
Lay slices across plate of cookie sheet
Break a few chunks of almond bark into a microwave safe bowl to melt
Heat in microwave for 30 seconds and stir, continue until heated through
Heat up or make caramel sauce
Once the caramel is done, use a spoon to drizzle over apples
Drizzle chocolate over the top of the apples and caramel
While everything is still soft add any additional toppings you want
And then. Enjoy!
