Fang Food: Apple Nachos

So far on Fang Food, we've only focused on meals, side dishes, and drinks. Today, we're boldly going to a new frontier: Dessert!

As you may recall, Whit did a BBQ chicken nachos. This too is a nachos recipe, except it's a sweet take on the idea. Instead of tortilla chips, we use crisp, tart apples, and instead of cheese, we use caramel and melted marshmallows. One of the best things about this dessert is that you can make it as sugary, or not, as you want. Choices! Best part is, these are super simple, and only take about twenty minutes to whip together.

Ingredients:

  • 36 caramels
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 30 large marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 4 medium, tart apples (such as Granny Smith), peeled and cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1/3 cup chopped dry-roasted peanuts
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • Sprinkles to taste

Directions:

  1. In the microwave, melt the caramels with water. Stir until smooth
  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt the marshmallows and butter
  3. Arrange the apples on a large platter. Drizzle with the caramel and marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle with the peanuts, chocolate, and sprinkles. Serve immediately.

My favorite kind of dessert: the quick and easy kind, the best for parties and such where you're busy. Also, pretty fun. As I said earlier, you can make this as sugary as you want. Just use less of the sauces if you don't want as much sugar. Enjoy!
