Caramel Apple Nachos

I have a HUGE love for caramel apples, so when I read this recipe in one of my favorite magazines Taste of Home, I just had to try it! I will say that this is so much easier then making traditional caramel apples (as for replacing one for the other, not there yet, I just love a good ole' fashion caramel apple), but these are a good alternative that can be shared with the whole family!! As I would not normally share my caramel apple with them. So, if you want to make this for a party, gathering or even a potluck, these were very yummy and would make a great holiday dish! ENJOY!

Caramel Apple Nachos

36 caramels (we used block of caramel from cake store)
1 tablespoon water
30 large marshmallows
1/3 cup butter, cubed
4 medium tart apples, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/3 cup chopped dry roasted peanuts (used walnuts, because of peanut allergy)
1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons Halloween sprinkles (doesn't need these, but go for it if you want)

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt caramels with water; stir until smooth. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt marshmallows and butter. Arrange apple slices on a large platter. Drizzle with caramel; top with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle with peanuts, chocolate chips and sprinkles. Serve immediately. 

We have now officially run out of all of our hand picked apples from Oak Glen.
I can't wait to go back next year (we might have to get 2 crates).
