Home Appetizer Apple Nachos

Apple Nachos

by Laura

It’s another day of Fall Snack Week and do I have a fun recipe for you today.  It’s a twist on nachos using apples instead of tortilla chips.  The twist doesn’t stop there.  Then those apples get covered in caramel, marshmallows, nuts and mini chocolate chips.  The apple nachos recipe is one that I adapted from my latest Taste of Home issue

I must say that I was really surprised at how yummy that were.  The marshmallow gets all stringy and and gooey just like melted cheese.  All the flavors go so well together.

Apple Nachos

  • 30 large marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup caramel apple dip
  • 4 medium tart apples, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/3 cup nut topping (the kind with the ice cram toppings) or chopped dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large saucepan, melt marshmallows and butter.
  2. Arrange apple slices on a large platter. Place caramel dip into a quart sized zipper bag.  Snip off one corner with some scissors and drizzle caramel over the apples.
  3. Then drizzle with the marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle with nut topping and chocolate chips. Serve immediately.

We made these for our super bowl party yesterday! They were very good, though we forgot all about the chocolate chips, but they were good without them. One thing we learned, though, is they mean it when they say SERVE IMMEDIATELY. our guests arrived late, and by the time they got there, the marshmallows were pretty hardened and they were harder to eat. But still, SO GOOD!

I would love to fix this for the grands. There is nothing in there that they don’t like.

Erika Beth October 14, 2010 - 1:51 pm

What a great idea! I wonder how quickly the apples brown with all the deliciousness on top. Hopefully not too quickly!

Caitlin (EatFeats) October 14, 2010 - 1:39 pm
