Apple Craze

Here a few weeks ago I was on Pinterest one morning, (like I normally am around the hour of 8am), looking around, checking out new pins, ideas, recipes and finding inspiration and there was a pin that was everywhere! I swear every person on there had re-pinned it at least once, and I think some had shared it multiple times. It must have caught on quick and spread like wildfire. Well, when I looked past the photo to the description, I could understand why. ~Apple Nachos~ Yeah, the name says it all. How absolutely perfect for an after school snack, kid-friendly dessert, or what I am envisioning for the future, a kids' party!  In my mind I can see an Apple Nacho Bar! Each child has a plate of his/her own sliced apples and the toppings are set up in the same fashion as a sundae bar, and just as much fun! Now I made these ahead of time to take w/ us somewhere, so I added a little lemon juice to avoid browning and a little sugar to compensate (see below). And if you were going to do my "bar" idea, I think the same would have to be applied.But they come together so fast, they are great for a last minute snack too! The possibilities are endless and kids will love they get to eat "nachos" and Mommy doesn't mind! Sometimes a band wagon craze is just too tempting not to join!

Apple Nachos
1 large apple, cored and thinly sliced (Mine yielded 16 individual slices)
Chocolate Syrup
Caramel Syrup
Mini Marshmallows
Chopped Pecans
Shredded Coconut

*If making ahead, place apple slices in a large bowl. Add 1 TBS lemon juice and 1 TBS sugar. Mix well to coat*

Place apple slices on plate, platter or pie dish. Drizzle w/ chocolate and caramel. Sprinkle w/ coconut, raisins, pecans and marshmallows.

I am sooo glad you shared this idea on Recipe Roundup. I must have missed its Pinterest glory. I agree it is good for kids but I am having it for dessert! Thanks.
