Buddy the Elf Candied Apple Nachos

Updated: Apr 1, 2022

In fine holiday form we made these deliciously sweet candied apple pieces for Halloween and then again for Christmas as a cute party appetizer. I go nuts for a caramel or candied apple, but much like eating spaghetti on a first date, those aren't very fun to eat at a party in front of everyone. So to adapt this recipe I made candied apple slices which turned out to be a crowd pleaser. Before I could grab a bite the entire plate was gone! You can adapt this to fit the sweets you like and create as much variety as your heart desires.

Other things to consider substituting or adding in.

1. Marshmallows

2. Nuts

3. Caramel drizzle

4. Sprinkles

5. Crushed Oreos

6. Pretzels

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Yields: 8 Servings

The Mix

  • 4-5 apples

  • Chocolate chips, melted

  • Candy corn

  • Coconut flakes

  • Peanut M&Ms, crushed

  • Peanut butter, melted

Begin by washing and slicing the apples. Then scatter them across a plate or serving platter.

Melt 1/2 cup peanut butter in microwave safe glassware. You can also do this in a small pot on the stove top.

Drizzle over the plate of sliced apples.

Melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips in the same way you did the peanut butter and drizzle that overtop the peanut butter.

Sprinkle crushed M&Ms along with any of the other sweets that you chose.

Sprinkle your coconut flakes and set out with a little chalk sign that says, "Buddy the Elf Candied Apples."

Place serveware next to the plate and enjoy!
