Apple Nachos: delicious layer of sweet apples topped with caramel, chocolate, marshmallow, nuts and chocolate morsels
Raise your hand if you like caramel apples? Yeah, me too! There is a little candy and ice cream shop back in my hometown that had the very best Candy Apples. I say “candy apples” because these things were monstrous. Coated with different candies, my favorite being toffee.
But that’s not what I made. As you can see. My rugrats were wanting a snack. So instead of giving them apple slices, I once again went over the top! I had a vision that these would be easier to eat than caramel apples. They’re not. They are gooey, and messy and totally delicious. Maybe next time I would eat them with a fork. But it was all good, cause the kids ate it outside. And rinsed with the hose. And probably took a drink of water out of the hose (gasp)! Then ate dirt. Okay fine, I exaggerate. But the hose part is real, (please don’t email me the dangers of drinking out of hoses. We like to live dangerously)!
