Apple Nachos

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #AppleWeek. I recieved product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of AppleWeek recipes. All opinions are my own. This post from 2010 has been updated with a new photo, text, and a printable recipe card.

To wrap up AppleWeek 2018, I'm revisiting a family favorite, Apple Nachos from Taste of Home.  I've made these dozens of times with so many variations.  Sometimes I do it all from scratch, sometimes I cheat and use jarred caramel ice cream topping and warmed up marshmallow creme.  Sometimes I use roasted salted pepitas or sunflower seeds. Mini cinnamon chips are great in place of the chocolate chips.

Just a little tip: if the variety of apple you are using is prone to browning with air exposure, give them a quick soak in lemon lime soda before assembling the platter.  I give them a quick pat down with a paper towel after I pull them out of the soda.  You can also use lemon juice, but my family wasn't crazy about the taste.  Or you can just eat them real fast :)

I hope that you have enjoyed AppleWeek as much as I have.  Thank you so much to Carlee from Cooking with Carlee for hosting, and to all the other AppleWeek bloggers for their amazing recipes.  Huge thanks to our sponsors as well, who so generously provided the prize packages.  Be sure to go and enter for your chance to win one of them below!
