It's Apple Season! How about some Nachos, no fattening tortilla chips needed



I got this awesome looking recipe from Taste of Home
Its a great magazine filled with yummy and fun recipes. This recipe claims to yield 24 servings, but I'd say it serves 4 lol.

Apple Nachos
by RaeAnne Gnatkowski

36 caramels
1 T water
30 large marshmallows
1/3 C butter, cubed
4 medium tart apples cut into ¼ inch slices
1/3 C dry roasted peanuts, chopped
1/3 C semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
3 T Halloween colored sprinkles

In a microwave safe bowl, melt caramel with water and stir until smooth.  

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt marshmallows and butter.  Arrange apple slices on a large platter.  Drizzle with caramel, top with marshmallow mixture.  Sprinkle peanuts, chocolate chips and sprinkles on top. 
Serve immediately.

Tip: Spritz the apple slices with some lemon lime soda to prevent oxidation.  You could use pecans or walnuts in place of the peanuts. 

If you have an apple peeler corer slicer, this recipe can be whipped up in 5-10 minutes! Just pull the peeler thing back.  Or peel them if you like.  The recipe calls for peeled apples, but the pic shows them not peeled and I love the peel on mine.
