Apple Nachos - Delicious Fall Treat!

***Simply Living has moved!  Come check us out at for new updates ***
This fall I have seen so many people post these delicious looking fall snacks, I wish I had time to make them all!  We didn't have time to make it apple picking this year, but I snagged some at the grocery store and decided to give Apple Nachos a whirl.  Essentially they are disassembled caramel apples, you can't go wrong!
I started by slicing up 6 apples, and then I soaked them in ice cold water with a splash of lemon juice.  This will prevent the apples from browning once they are sliced, it's a great trick if you are planning ahead want to pre-slice them for a snack later.  If you don't have lemon juice you can even soak them in a lemon lime soda for the same effect, small splash of sprite will do the trick!

 While these soaked I melted about 20 marshmallows with 4 tbsps of butter...

While I waited for these to melt I arranged the sliced apples on a plate

And then drizzled them with marshmallow and caramel.  We decided to add mini-M&M's, but really you could use any topping you like.  Think of all the delicious caramel apple toppings out there!

Drizzle, add toppings, and enjoy!

The end result was really tasty.  Still kind of messy since the marshmallow and caramel dripped off, but not as messy as trying to bite into a loaded apple.  They were a hit at the party, and I would highly recommend them!
