Healthy Apple Snack!
When I made these easy apple nachos the first time the kids thought I was being funny. They wanted dessert and I wanted them to have something healthy so I sliced up some apples and turned them into this tasty no bake apple dessert.
Now the kids ask me to make them apple nachos often as our dessert, for snack and as I said before breakfast sometimes too.
Tips for Making this recipe
You can use jarred sauces, however I like to use homemade hot fudge and homemade caramel sauce. I think they taste much better then anything in a jar.
Slice the apples using an apple slicer. It is much easier to get a uniform size and shape, plus it makes cutting apples much easier then using a knife.
Use the apples you have on hand. I used 2 different apples because that is what I had on hand but it doesn’t matter which type you use.
