Caramel Apple Nachos

Caramel Apple Nachos
Caramel Apple Nachos

I love caramel apples, so I knew I would love these caramel apple nachos.  Originally I thought I would use this recipe for homemade caramel, but I got lazy and just melted some store bought caramels, which worked just fine.  I also thought caramel apple nachos might be a little easier and less messy to eat than traditional caramel apples.  Nope.  They were still pretty messy with all that ooey gooey caramel, but that's part of the fun of eating caramel apples, right?

Caramel apple nachos are delicious and a whole lot of fun to eat!  However, it's not a recipe you want to make ahead of time.  The apples will turn brown quickly and you really want to enjoy that caramel while its still warm and gooey!

The original recipe uses melted white chocolate and pieces of Heath candy, but add whatever you like on your caramel apples.  I used chopped peanuts which were yummy!  Other toppings could be crushed salty pretzels, your favorite nuts or candy.  (I'm thinking M&M's would be good.)  What would you put on your caramel apple nachos?

Ingredients:
two green granny smith apples, cored and sliced
half a bag of caramel
1 teaspoon water
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
2 Tablespoons mini chocolate chips

Directions:
1.  Unwrap caramels.  Place in a saucepan with one teaspoon of water over medium low heat.  Stir constantly until caramels are melted.
2.  Drizzle melted caramel over sliced apples.
3.  Sprinkle with chopped peanuts and mini chocolate chips.

Skillet Sausage and Peppers

I love recipes that can be made in just one pan or one pot, don't you?  They're super easy to make and fewer dishes to wash!  This recipe for skillet sausage and peppers cooks in one pan and is a meal all on it's own, though it would be just as good with some fresh bread or a salad.  I love the subtle differences in flavor of the red, green, and yellow peppers and all the color they add to this dish.  I've made this a couple of times and everybody likes it.  There's never any leftovers!  Just follow this pin for skillet sausage and peppers to the recipe.

Halloween Monster Donuts

Monsters are supposed to be scary, but these monster donuts make me smile!  They're just so darn funny!  Monster donuts are the perfect thing to take to a Halloween party, especially if you don't have a lot of time.  Just buy a box of store bought donuts, stick some plastic vampire teeth in the center of each one, and add two chocolate chips for the eyes.  Done.

Seriously, who could resist these cute little guys?
