Sweet Nachos

Apples + marshmallows + caramel + chocolate chips + peanuts + sprinkles = pure bliss.  If you have apples in your house - you need to try these apple nachos - you won't regret it.  This recipe came from my Taste of Home Fall Baking magazine.

Apple nachos
36 caramels
1 Tablespoon water
30 large marshmallows
1/3 cup butter
4 medium apples, sliced on a mandolin (I dipped mine in sprite to keep them from turning brown.)
1/3 cup chopped peanuts
1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
3 Tablespoons Halloween sprinkles

Melt caramels with water in microwave.  Stir until smooth.
Melt marshmallows and butter in saucepan.
Arrange apple slices on a platter. 
Drizzle with caramel.
Top with marshmallows.
Sprinkle with peanuts, chocolate chips and sprinkles. 

I had intended to serve the apples for dessert but everyone was so excited to try them that we dove right in.   

They were messy but super good.  I have to agree with the kids on this one - apple nachos rock. 

Bon Appetit!
