Easy Fall Snack – Apple Nachos!

Apples are a staple ingredient for me in the fall, but there are so many to choose from! The best thing about apple recipes is that, most of the time, you can use whatever apples you like. I love Granny Smith and Fuji, but go ahead and use your favorite. 

Although you can use store bought caramel and chocolate sauce, I totally recommend making my homemade versions! They are so good!

Ingredients Needed

  • Apples: Use your favorite kind.
  • Caramel sauce: Checkout my 3 ingredient caramel if you want to make it homemade.
  • Chocolate sauce or you can use hot fudge!
  • Chopped nuts for garnish: Hazelnuts are my favorite! 

Apple Nachos Toppings

  • Any chopped nuts like hazelnuts, pecans, and walnuts. 
  • Add peanut butter on top. To make it thinner, put it in the microwave for a few seconds. This would also work with Nutella or Biscoff too.
  • You could crush up any cracker, like graham crackers. 

How to make apple nachos

  • Core and slice apples. Arrange as desired on a serving platter.
  • Drizzle apples with caramel and chocolate sauce.
  • Sprinkle with nuts.
  • Serve immediately. Will last a few hours at room temperature.

Expert Tips

  • Core the apples before slicing to give the best results. 
  • Theme this recipe for any event or holiday for putting the apples in a fun shape, as opposed to just laying them out. 
  • Sprinkles would be a fun way to dress these up too.


Can I make apple nachos ahead of time?

No, this recipe needs to be served immediately. They can last a few hours at room temperature before the apples start getting soggy or brown.

  1. These fruity nachos are so fun and perfect for fall! Love the hazelnut creamer and caramel! I wish I had these in my lunch box when I was younger and then I wouldn’t have thrown away my apples too – { i know tsk tsk }. At least I know what to pack for my lil guy when he starts school – love these – pinned 🙂

  2. When I was in my 20’s I told myself that I would never say to my child, “because I said so”! Hey, such a pretty dessert!
