Ingredients needed for Caramel Apple Nachos

  • Apples: I like to use a combination of Granny Smith and Gala apples. But you can use any apples you prefer.
  • White Chocolate: I prefer to use a higher quality of white chocolate like Ghirardelli’s. The chocolate melts better and doesn’t clump.
  • Pretzels: Any pretzels will do, but I love salted pretzels for the sweet and salty flavor.
  • Heath Bars: Heath bars are a chocolate covered toffee candy bar. I love this candy as a topping.
  • Carmel Sauce: I prefer to use homemade caramel sauce, but you can always use store bought if that’s what you have on hand.
  • Salted Butter: Adds the salt to your homemade caramel sauce for the perfect flavor.
  • Brown Sugar: Is used in the caramel sauce. You can use light or dark brown sugar.
  • Corn Syrup: Is used when making a soft caramel and prevents the sugar from crystalizing.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: I love the flavor sweetened condensed milk adds to homemade caramel.
  • Vanilla: I prefer to use pure vanilla when I am baking, but you can use any vanilla extract you have in your pantry.

How to make Caramel Apple Nachos

  • Start by crushing your pretzels and chopping your heath bar into small bits. Place them into small bowls and set aside. You want these ready to sprinkle as soon as you drizzle the caramel and white chocolate on the apples.
  • Wash, core, and slice your apples and add them to a large bowl. Add lemon juice and water, or sprite to the bowl and let the apples sit while you are preparing you caramel and white chocolate.
  • Prepare caramel sauce by melting butter in a medium saucepan. Add brown sugar, corn syrup, and sweetened condensed milk. Whisk ingredients together and continue cooking until sauce comes to a light bubbly boil. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla. Set aside to slightly cool.
  • Add white chocolate to a microwave safe bowl and heat in the microwave until melted. Removing every 30 seconds to stir until chocolate is fully melted.
  • Drain liquid from the bowl of apples. Arrange sliced apples on a large serving plate.
  • Drizzle homemade caramel sauce and white chocolate over apples. Sprinkle crushed pretzels and toffee bits on top. If you have extra toppings, I like to set them on the counter next to the apple nachos for guests to add any extra toppings if desired. Enjoy!

What kind of apples can I use?

You can use any variety of apples you like such as Granny Smith, Gala, Fuji, and Honeycrisp. Granny Smith are a popular apple when it comes to caramel apples. The tartness from the apple pairs well with the buttery sweet caramel. I like to use a variety of colored apples which will make the apples nachos appealing to the eye with the bright colors.
