Every parent needs a few easy-peasy snack recipes on hand for busy days. These apple nachos totally fit the bill and are a big hit around here. You can make them any time of the year, but we really get into them when we go apple picking in the fall. We always end up with so many apples! Since you don’t even need a knife to make these, I often hand the task of making apple nachos to my children. I, of course, supervise so they don’t go too overboard with the toppings!
As the title suggest, apple nachos are sliced apples on a platter with lots of fun toppings. You eat them with your hands just like traditional tortilla nachos. In this episode I make them sweet, but you could also make them savory with a drizzle of melted cheese and a sprinkle of savory spice if you’d like! My kids always start these by cutting the apples with our little apple cutting tool. It’s great for small hands and is much safer than a knife. Then, we choose our toppings and I line them up in small bowls so they can go to town.
For this episode I made sure there were lots of good topping choices to choose from. I like doing this so my kids have plenty of options and are able to customize their nachos to be what they really want. In addition to what you see here, you could also try chopped nuts, melted peanut butter, or nearly any other topping option you’d find at the store. These really are a lot of fun for the children and put a smile on their faces after a long day at school.
I hope you find this recipe as fun as my family does. It is a guaranteed smile-maker and, as we all know, there is nothing better than that!
We love apple picking each year. Over the years I’ve come with many creative, fun recipes for the children to use all the apples! These are a super fun snack for after school. Feel free to try different toppings based on what you think people might like: coconut, chopped nuts, granola, or anything else you like.
