Who Says Halloween Candy Needs to be Used on Halloween?

I stumbled upon an incredible recipe from “Iowa Girl Eats” and it sounds delicious!


This Halloween,save some of the candy you snag from your kids or the office this year to make these epic Ultimate Apple Snicker Nachos the day after Halloween (if you can wait that long!)

Ultimate Apple Snicker Nachos start with a layer of fresh apple slices that are topped with gooey melted caramel, a silky chocolate drizzle, crunchy peanuts, and chopped Snickers.

The best part is that Ultimate Apple Snicker Nachos are made with common Halloween treats, which I guarantee you’ll be able to get your hands on, on or before Halloween night. PLUS they’re ready in 5 minutes. Seriously, couldn’t be simpler!

Your ingredients include 1 room-temperature apple, 3 snack-size Hershey chocolate bars, 6 caramels, 2 fun-size Snickers chopped up, and 1 Tablespoon chopped peanuts.

Start by slicing the apple and arranging it on a plate. Use whatever type you have on hand, but a crisp and tart apple like Granny Smith or Honeycrisp will taste great under the super-sweet toppings.

Next melt the caramels with 1/4 teaspoon water for 45 seconds to a minute, stirring every 15 seconds, then drizzle over the apple slices. This is where a room temperature apple comes in handy – you want to keep the caramel ooey-gooey for as long as possible. If it hits a cold apple then it will start to lose the ooze (but still taste awesome.)

Repeat the melting, stirring, and drizzling part with the chocolate bars… UltimateAppleSnickerNachos_08_mini

Then sprinkle with the chopped Snickers and peanuts and Voila! UltimateAppleSnickerNachos_11_mini
