Apple Nachos {Guest Post}

Did you know that I have a strange love for teen shows? I was a dedicated One Tree Hill fan until the end, even as awful as the show was at times. But a show that I’m ridiculously excited to start back up this season… Vampire Diaries. Seriously. I can’t help it. I mean there’s Damon and Stefan and some other people rounding out the bunch who don’t really matter quite as much. I know you agree. Well, today my fellow teen show loving friend is joining us. Brandy of Nutmeg Nanny is sharing a perfect snack to enjoy as an after school treat or maybe for premiere night. This is going to be a loooonng month of waiting!

Hello Baked by Rachel readers! I’m Brandy and I blog over at Nutmeg Nanny. When Rachel asked me to be part of her apple party I couldn’t resist. I love apples and my kitchen is overflowing with them at the moment.

It took me forever to figure out what I wanted to make but I finally settled on these apple nachos. They are fully loaded but not nearly as bad for you as real nachos. I simply drizzled on a little caramel and nutella and then sprinkled on some almonds, chocolate chips and coconut. It was the perfect sweet and crunchy combination!  

Apple Nachos

Ingredients:

2 large apples
Lemon juice
1/4 cup caramel sauce
1/4 cup nutella
2 tablespoons chopped toasted almonds
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
2 tablespoons sweetened toasted coconut

Directions:

Slice apples thinly and put a little lemon juice on the slices to keep them from browning. Arrange the apple slices on a platter.

Gently warm caramel and nutella and drizzle on top of the apple slices.

Sprinkle the remaining toppings and enjoy! This recipe is best served when eaten right away.
