Halloween Caramel Apple Nachos

Apples slices drizzled with homemade caramel, melted chocolate and topped with your favorite Halloween candies are a perfect snack for Halloween. This festive twist on the caramel apple is a hit with old and young alike.

Yesterday I had the chance to cook on Fox 13’s -The Place for my first ever cooking segment.  

During the final spot they brought Kalena in with us (she was my helper and came with me to set up all ingredients and pack everything up).  It was fun to have her there with me.  She was not planning on coming on camera at all but she did a good job.  Big Budah asked her if they are my guinea pigs and she answered correctly.  I usually end up taking what I’ve made to Sunday dinner at my parents house where there are 10 kids and 8 adults and make them all try it.  They are VERY vocal about whether if it’s a keeper or not. So if it passes the Afo grandkids test then it usually makes it on here.

These caramel apple “nachos” were a hit with my little buddies.  That is all but Malone (age 4), he told me they were disgusting because I didn’t take the skin off of the apples first.  He’s a funny guy.

I am sharing my most favorite old fashioned caramel for this recipe.  You will need a candy thermometer, so make sure you grab one if you don’t have one yet.  You don’t need a fancy one, just one that is a couple of dollars is fine.

After you make your caramel you will want it to cool down for a couple of minutes.  In the meantime melt your chocolate and white chocolate. I buy my chocolate from Orson Gygi but you can use your favorite chocolate.  Slice your apples and put them onto a plate.  When your caramel is cooled down get a spoon and drizzle some caramel on top of your apple slices.  You can add as much or as little as you would like. Repeat with chocolate and then layer with your favorite Halloween candies and repeat with the caramel and chocolate.

My girls had a fun time adding their favorite chocolate bars (as you can tell, we like Kit Kat’s and Snickers).  Even though we aren’t fans of candy corn we couldn’t help but add them as well because they look so festive.

I hope you have a great Halloween.  We can’t wait, it’s one of our favorite Holidays.
