{apple} nachos

My kids are CRAZY for nachos! Usually just chips and cheese. Sometimes a bit of salsa, and avocado (if I’m lucky), but usually just chips and cheese.  Not exactly health food.  Last week, nachos were requested daily for lunch. Could be worse I suppose.

This week we are back to school.  Some of us are more excited than others:)

I thought I would surprise them with dessert nachos for an after-school treat!
I’m not going to tell them that it’s a healthy – ish way to snack. (there is an apple underneath all that gooey goodness)

For the nachos:
2 tart apples (1 per snacker)
2 tablespoons of melted chocolate (we used chips)
2 tablespoons of softened peanut butter
2 tablespoons of caramel sauce – recipe here (or use melted caramels)
toppings – nuts, sprinkles, choc chips

wash, core, and cut apple
drizzle with peanut butter,  chocolate, and caramel
add any extras – we used mini-chips

Doesn’t get easier than that.
