apple nachos

 

I certainly can’t take credit for these. They’re everywhere right now. I have no idea where this idea originated from or who gets the credit for it but that person deserves a big thank you.

Apple Nachos kept popping up on Pinterest and in my blog feed but I never pinned the recipe or saved it anywhere. I really never gave it another thought until last Friday afternoon when I was rooting around my refrigerator, looking for a snack for my kids.

I opened the crisper and found apples and for some reason remembered this ridiculously easy recipe.

I’m so glad I did because both of my kiddos gobbled these up and truth be told, I ate quite a few as well (quality control – It’s a tough job).

Not only are these delicious but they’re also super simple to put together and you can top them with whatever you and your kids like.

Got people coming over to watch the game? Set out a big platter of these babies and watch how fast they disappear. Better yet, just set out lots of toppings and let everyone make their own. Fun!

 

Ingredients

sliced apples (pears would work too)

citrus juice, pineapple juice, lemon lime soda

toppings – shredded coconut, chocolate chips, chopped nuts, peanut butter (warmed to drizzling consistency), caramel, melted chocolate, sprinkles, chopped candy bars, warmed pumpkin peanut butter, etc.

 

Directions

Fill a medium-sized bowl about halfway with cold water and add in a good splash of citrus juice or pineapple juice. You can also use lemon lime soda instead of water if you have it.

Thinly slice your apple(s) and drop them into the water. Don’t skip this step though, it keeps your apples from turning brown.

Let the apple slices soak for a minute or two and then remove them from the water and place on a towel to dry. I like to pat them dry with paper towels too.

When the apple slices are dry, arrange them on a plate or a platter and lovingly add the toppings of your choice. Or just haphazardly throw them on like I did because my kids are not pleasant when they’re hungry.
