Apple Nachos

· 36 caramels
· 1 tablespoon water
· 30 large marshmallows
· 1/3 cup butter, cubed
· 4 medium tart apples, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
· 1/3 cup chopped dry roasted peanuts
· 1/3 cup HERSHEY’®S Mini Chips Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

· In a microwave-safe bowl, melt caramels with water; stir until smooth.
· Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt marshmallows and butter. Arrange apple slices on a large platter. Drizzle with caramel; top with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle with peanuts, chocolate chips and sprinkles. Serve immediately. I sprinkled my apples with Fruit Fresh to prevent them from browning, but it made them a little soggy, so I recommend just eating this immediately. I used homemade caramel, or you could also use caramel ice cream topping. This is a great afternoon snack for the kiddos!
