Recipe #2: Caramel Apple Nachos

pizap_com10_04338735947385431353447396337I had seen apple nachos before, they had nuts and a peanut butter drizzle. Upon glancing at some apple chips and the reoccurring thoughts of all things fall (caramel apples) and the desire to make something fun for my nephews to eat, I came up with these, Caramel Apple Nachos.

Apple Chips:

  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • juice of lemon

To Make: I tossed mine in lemon juice to prevent browning because I didn’t dehydrate them initially. Place in dehydrator (or lay them in the oven at the lowest temperature setting). Leave for several hours until they’re crisp and no longer soft.

Chocolate Sauce

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk

To Make: Process. Drizzle over the top.

Caramel Sauce

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt

To Make: Place milk and salt in a saucepan on low/medium heat. Allow to simmer, add honey, stir until dissolved. Bring to a low boil, stir for about 15 minutes. Turn off heat, set saucepan in cold water (do not get water in the pan). Drizzle this over the apples.

Pecan Layer

  • Pecans

To Make: chop pecans in a food processor (or buy them that way). Sprinkle over the top. Boom, completed Caramel Apple Nachos!
