apple nachos dessert recipe with apples covered with caramel, marshmallow fluff, and chocolate sauce

These thinly sliced apples drizzled with caramel, chocolate, and homemade honey marshmallow fluff, are not only perfect for Superbowl Sunday and birthday parties, they’ll also make an easy and special treat for your kids Valentine’s Day party!

Super easy to make, here’s how:
 

 cut apples for apple nachos dessert recipeFirst, wash and dry your apples. Then, if using a mandoline, slice in half around the middle. Remove the stem, and core if desired (I like to just remove the stem end and leave the pretty little *stars* in the middle of the apple).

I find it’s easiest to microwave the fluff for about 30 seconds (not the entire batch, just about 1/2 cup), put into a pastry bag or zipper type bag, snip off a corner (if using a plastic bag), and pipe on.

Betcha can’t eat just one!
 

One of the reasons why I love these apple nachos is because they are very versatile. Try drizzling with peanut butter and chocolate for an after school treat. Love chocolate and caramel? Great, just use those! Want to spice it up a bit? Drizzle with chocolate and then lightly sprinkle with cayenne pepper. Looking for something for Easter Brunch? Drizzle with lemon curd and marshmallow fluff.

Honey Marshmallow Fluff
 
Very sweet with a bright honey flavor. This marshmallow fluff is easy to make and stores well in the fridge for up to a week.
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • ½ c. honey, *liquified
  • 2 Tbsp. cold water
  • 2 Tbsp.boiling water
  • 1 tsp. gelatin (here's the brand I use)
  • 1 egg white, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
Instructions
Step 1
  1. Add gelatin to cold water and allow to bloom (this simply means absorb the water). This should take about 3 minutes.
  2. Add boiling water to the bloomed gelatin and whisk until gelatin has dissolved.
  3. Add honey to warm gelatin mixture and whisk until combined.
Step 2
  1. In a large mixing bowl (I use my KitchenAid Mixer), beat egg white until the **soft peak stage is achieved.
  2. Slowly, drizzle in the honey/gelatin mixture.
  3. Beat on high for about 7 minutes.
  4. At the 5 minute mark, add vanilla and continue to beat for the remaining 2 minutes.
  5. The marshmallow should be fluffy and hold its peaks.
  6. Store in a glass bowl in the fridge for up to a week.
Notes
*If your honey has crystallized, then put jar in a pan with water and gently heat the honey until it comes back to a liquid state.
**"Soft peak stage" means that the egg whites start to hold their shape, but are not yet stiff.
