Peanut Apple Nachos

Peanuts are completely optional. If you’re allergic to peanuts, you can omit them entirely, or swap them in for your favorite non-allergenic chopped nut.

topping options

The topping possibilities are endless! You can use as much or as little of the suggested toppings as you want, and you can even add some of your other favorite toppings!

Apple Browning Tips

If you’re not going to be serving the apple nachos right away, we recommend squeezing a little lemon juice over the apple slices right after you slice them. This should prevent browning.

Apple Bourbon Substitute:

If you can’t find apple bourbon, you can use regular bourbon for the caramel sauce. You can also omit it entirely if you don’t want to use bourbon.

caramel

This Homemade Apple Bourbon Caramel is simply unbeatable! The taste is amazing. If you need to save time, you can always use plain caramel sauce from the ice cream topping section.

apple option

We love the tartness of the granny smith and the sweetness of the topping, but you can really use any apple you like! No matter which breed you choose, you can’t go wrong.

  • 14 ounce sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup corn syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

instruct

Apple Bourbon Caramel

  • Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, pour in the sweetened condensed milk, corn syrup, and brown sugar.

  • Using a whisk or a rubber spatula, beat all ingredients over medium heat until just starting to boil. Scrape the sides and bottom regularly.

  • Let the sauce simmer until it reaches a temperature of 200-205 degrees. We’re just making a sauce, so we need to simmer long enough for the grains to come out, but not bring it to the soft ball stage.

  • Once at temperature, remove from heat and carefully stir in vanilla, apple bourbon, and salt. Stir until fully combined.

  • Let cool, then pour into jars for storage. Shelf stable for up to 1 month.

Apple Nachos

  • Use washed, clean apples – Slice from the outside in, slice the cross-section of the apple until you reach the core, change direction, and cut along the sides of the apple to make apple slices.

  • Spread the apple slices on a plate, drizzle with caramel sauce and your favorite toppings!

notes

  • If you can’t find apple bourbon, you can use regular bourbon for the caramel sauce. You can also omit it entirely if you don’t want to use bourbon.
