A plate of Apple Nachos drizzled with peanut butter, marshmallow, caramel, and candy makes a delicious and fun after school snack. They would also make a fun dessert bar for kids to put together at parties.

Can you take the healthy out of food?
Maybe you can’t take it out, but you had hide and disguise it so much that the health factor is pretty much gone. That’s so true about these apples in front of you.
“Honest Mr. Dentist, I eat lots of apples, so I have no idea why I keep getting cavities?” Wink, wink! I’m sure it had nothing to do with the cinnamon sugar apple donut holes I’ve been eating each afternoon. LOL!
My little sister was telling me about these yummy loaded apples that she had seen online. They are the perfect “let’s rot our teeth” before bed treat. LOL!
I had a few bags of apples leftover after making an apple crisp pie, so I put together a big plate for a bedtime snack . My kiddos gobbled them up so quick. Well, two out of the three did anyway.
The third little monster threw a fit saying he didn’t like apples. That is so not true because he eats them plain just fine every other day. I think he must be on to the whole cavity thing.
After a crying fit, I sent him to bed without anything. I wasn’t backing down because I am the Mama after all!!
After 10 minutes of fake crying in his bed, he came up and said he was done and actually apologized for throwing a fit! It makes this mama very proud to know they are learning and remembering the things we teach them day to day. I love when they know they have done something wrong and come apologize on their own.
He then asked if he could have his plain apple. And I probably shouldn’t have given in…but he did apologize. Maybe next time he will be willing to try these fun apple nachos. Plus, how can I tell my kid he has to eat the sugar laden snack over a healthy apple slice?
Still have more apples and want to try some other fun treats? These Caramel Apple Pretzel Bites look like such a fun and easy way to use up bags of apples. I’m also loving the granola in these Loaded Apple Slices. They are such an easy snack for any time of day. Or you could just make a bowl of this Apple Pie Dip and go to town with plain apple slices. I’m good with all these methods for eating an apple a day!
