Apple Nachos

Super easy and delicious, make a batch of these no bake Apple Nachos today!
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)!

    My name is Ali and I am from the Water Services Department.

    I was forwarded this address by a concerned reader: Miss A. Busybody in regards to the dangers of drinking out of hoses after apple consumption.

    Danger #1 – Bacteria growth in warm standing water. Let the water get nice and cold before drinking.

    Danger #2 – Lead passed from the hose to the hose-drinker.

    Please be advised that a second or two worth of a cool sip from the house is NO JOKING MATTER. You might as well send your kids to much on the old paint in your closets.

    Please be advised that we will follow up with this situation should any children be found frolicking and hose sipping in your yard in the future.

    Stuffily,
    Me

    How long do you think this dish can sit out before the apples start to brown?

  48. @anonymous…if you want, you can toss the apples with a little bit of lemon juice to keep them from browning. Otherwise, we eat it right away!

  49. All I can say is WOW! This is a wonderful idea and perfect for entertaining guests!

  50. I made this as a snack for my kids and me – thank you!

  51. These apple nachos are brilliant. My only problem is I need them now and I don’t have any. Thanks for coming by my blog. I just love yours and am happy to be following it.

  52. Had to pin this too. OMG your killing me. Love your foodie ideas.

  53. To make these less messy, try Skewering the Apples before putting them on the plate, then drizzle all the sweet goodness over them and top with your variety of nuts and chopped nuts .. You could use any assortment of apples also.

  54. These look delicious and I can’t wait to try them.

    Just became a follower.

  55. Just found you through the blog hop, and I’m so excited to follow you!! This recipe looks great!!

    I’d love for you to stop by my blog sometime!

  60. I know that this is one of your older recipes, but I think I found my first recipe to try. I love apples and caramel. I think I will use fluff instead. I hope it will come out OK.

    I had something similar at a family reunion. Mix 2 tbs brown sugar w/ a block of crm cheese and either form it in middle of plate or you could spread it in a sm dish. Then sprinkle with tofee bits and drizzle with caramel ice cream topping. Serve with sliced green apples for dipping. delish

  63. OMGAGA talk about candy apples yummy yummy. Thanks foe sharing

  64. looks very yummy and unique

  65. Great idea and I loved drinking out of the hose. I did it all the time as a kid and adult. SO I say HOOEY to all the hose crap. I’m 55 and healthy as a horse so I’m thinking it’s fine. I may have ate dirt too I know I ate paste in Kindergarten so all the stuff is right of passage. But the apples look awesome. Sad to share LOL

    I love your posts. This one really hit home for us – we had to try them immediately. The only one who came out neatly was the child in the house at the time. She wanted to try bathing in the hose and having a drink out of it, but I was able to say truthfully that the weather wasn’t acceptable and we didn’t have a hose. On the other hand, I drank out of hoses all the time as a kid, sometimes removing the sprinkler so we could. It didn’t do us any harm, although my grandmother swore it raised out IQ every time we did so she asked us to stop. Thanks again for this great recipe.

    Anybody have any ideas how to make this lactose free? I know there are substitutes for the chocolate, but what about the caramel and condensed milk?

  70. Toni

    Wow! I bet this would be great with pears, too!

  71. This is the perfect web site foor anybody who wants to understand this topic.

    You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you
    (not that I personally would want toโ€ฆHaHa). Youu definitely put a brand new splin on a topic which has
    been discussed for years. Wonderful stuff, just great!

  72. BitsyBet

    I see another use for my pizza pan. Can’t wait to try this one.

  73. Holly smokes, I just saw this. These are the best nachos I have ever seen in my life ๐Ÿ™‚ I am going to share this recipe in my FB page. I just love this idea!

  74. I think I’ll try this but pop them in the freezer before serving. I think it may make them slightly less messy.
