Apple Nachos

Apple Nachos are one of my very favorite snacks.  I love that they give me the sweet flavor I am craving without a lot of the calories of some other snack choices.

Have you ever tried them? You NEED too! They are so simple to make and you can totally customize them to your taste preferences and dietary needs.

I LOVE to use granny smith apples with a mix of fuji or honey crisp apples.  I love the tart and crispy texture it adds to the apple nachos.  I also love to drizzle our favorite homemade caramel sauce (recipe coming), melted chocolate and sometimes peanut butter or almond butter that has been melted.

You can also get crazy and throw in some mini chocolate chips or nuts.  Really, the options are endless.  Just throw on your favorites!

And just because Valentine’s Day is on the horizon, I thought it would be fun to make a Valentine’s Day Apple Nachos version.  It is a fun and festive way to celebrate the Valentine’s Day Holiday with a healthier snack idea with your significant other.

Slice the apples and then cut out the centers with a heart cookie cutter.  Throw out the ones that have the seeds from the core in it, but save the other heart cut outs and place them around your platter.  The hearts that have the red and green skins can be placed in the heart cut outs to add some fun color to the tray.
