Caramel Apple Nachos

Butter With a Side of Bread: Caramel Apple Nachos
I love fall and I love caramel apples.  I saw this idea for making caramel apples - nacho style and I couldn't wait to try it.  It's simple, delicious, and you can add as many (or as few) toppings as you'd like.  The end result is a lot easier to eat than a traditional caramel apple too...although still a little messy!


30 large marshmallows
5 Tbsp butter
35 caramels
1 Tbsp water
4-5 apples, sliced
toppings (peanuts, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, crushed candy bars, etc)


Melt the marshmallows and butter in a saucepan over low heat.  Stir periodically until completely melted and smooth.  Combine the caramels and water in a bowl and microwave until melted.  I microwaved mine in 45 second intervals, stirring in between until the caramel was smooth.  Arrange the sliced apples on a plate and pour the caramel and marshmallow mixtures over them.  Add any additional toppings and serve immediately!
