Caramel Apple Nachos

Caramel Apple Nachos --- FamilyFreshMeals.com --

 

One of my favorite fall treats has to be caramel apples. The tart apple with the sweet caramel and chocolate is to die for! But lets face it… those sticky apples aren’t the easiest to eat.

 

This cool  twist on nachos,  brings you all the decadent flavors of the beloved caramel apple, but in finger-food form.

 

The protein packed combo of peanut butter AND Nature Valley™ Protein Granola  also makes this a filling snack or dessert.  Yay! Another great thing about this recipe, is that you can customize it to your liking.

 

Got peanut allergies? Use an alternative nut butter. Don’t have chocolate chips on hand? Use raisins, white baking chips or seeds. The combos can go on and on.
