Apple Pie Apple Nachos

One of my absolute favorite things is the Apple Pie Caramel Apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. It is dipped in such simple ingredients, but is to die for. However, I can't justify the more than $5 price tag for one of these bad boys.

Cue apple nachos.

I made some last week drizzled with caramel and Nutella, which were divine, but immediately wanted to try this combination. Needless to say, my husband and I just couldn't control ourselves and ate a whole plate of these before dinner.

Oops.
Oh well. At least I got a serving of fruit in for the day.
Apple Pie Apple Nachos
1 large (Honeycrisp or Granny Smith) apple at room temperature
8 Kraft caramels, unwrapped
1/2 tsp. water
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 Tbsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. cinnamon

1. Slice apple into thin wedges and arrange on a plate.
2. Place caramels in a microwave-safe bowl with 1/2 tsp. water and microwave for 45 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds. Stir and drizzle in a spiral motion over apples.
3. *Place white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 50% power for 45 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds. Stir until smooth and drizzle over apples in spiral motion.
4. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and sprinkle over apples. Serve immediately and enjoy!

*A double boiler is recommended for melting white chocolate, but the microwave works if you don't own one. Just be sure to not overcook it!

    1. Perfectly healthy. You'll eat an entire apple in about 2 minutes. What's better than that?
