Reviews for Apple Nachos
"Did anyone have a problem with apples turning brown before recipe was completed and dish was served? Thinking about soaking apples in lemon juice..just wondering :-)"
"These were delicious!! The only problem I had was the thinness of the apple slices. They were too thin and fell apart with the all of the toppings on it. The next time I make them, I will do thicker slices. Other than that they were so good and gobbled up!"
"I made this recipe for girls' night and it was a huge hit!!! In addition to using the jarred caramel I also used the jarred marshmallow. Much easier and less messy!I plan on making this recipe for an upcoming halloween party."
"Delicious my guests couldn't gobble these up fast enough!"
"I am planning on making these for my granddaughter's birthday party. Nice to see the idea of fluff and ice cream topping. I will add peanut butter chips also. It all sounds so yummy!"
"I will make this again with caramel ice cream topping, and hope it turns out easier to eat then with the melted caramels. My family really liked it I will also try it with cinnamon chips this time. All in all I thought it was fun and tasty just needed to work out a couple of kinks."
"Took it to a potluck. Came home with a empty plate. They ate them all!"
"the other reviews are right - I used the carmamel ice cream topping and it was less sticky.... these were great...it is my new favorite snack recipe"
"How is a recipe that calls for 36 caramels, 30 large marshmallows, chocolate chips and sprinkles considered 'diabetic friendly'? This dish has 25g of highly processed carbs and only 2g of protein to offset the digestion of all this sugar. This dish is NOT diabetic friendly."
"This was an ooey, gooey, delicious mess! But so is a caramel apple, and this was much easier to prepare. We loved it!"
"I can only give this 2 stars as written, and I would not make it again as written. I wish I had read the other reviews before making this! The recipe does not say how long to heat the caramels in the microwave, and I overcooked them. The caramel got hard immediately after drizzling and the whole topping came off when we tried to pick up one apple! I will be making this again, but with ice cream toppings instead. The blurb with the recipe says that "it doesn't get much easier than" this, but using ice cream topping is WAY easier and works out better!"
"Tasty and kids loved it!"
"Subbed caramel ice cream topping and heated marshmallow fluff. Used cinnamon chips. :) My son loved them!"
"I just left the marshmallows in chunks and used ice cream topping caramel syrup. My kids couldn't stop eating it!"
"I took this to a football game gathering. Everyone loved them. I made 2 batches because they went so fast. Because I am not a peanut fan, I used chopped pecans instead. I also made my own homemade caramel instead of using caramel pieces."
"My husband and I ate ourselves sick on this! I had a problem of my marshmallows hardening to where they made the apples stick together, but it was still good! Just be prepared to be sticky up to your eyebrows :)"
"I think next time I'll use caramel ice cream topping instead of the caramels and water, melted marshmallow fluff instead of the marshmallows, and 6-8 apples instead of just 4. There was WAY too much topping for 4 apples. I used Gala apples, which was nice too."
"I made this with a Braeburn and Grannie Smith apple. The Braeburn was definitely the better choice. Easy to make, but gooey to eat."
"When it says "serve immediately," it means it! I made these for a party, and everybody loved them, but since I had to make them a couple hours in advance, the apples were mushy (I tossed them with citrus to prevent browning) and the caramel/marshmallow sauces melted. But the flavor was so good that several ladies asked for the recipe!"
"Nice concept. However, the individual caramels set up too fast causing the apple slices to stick together creating a messy appetizer. Better to use prepare ice cream caramel topping or apple dip caramel."
"Excellent! My children (ages 11 and 14) couldn't get enough of them!"
