Today I will be reviewing Allyson Kramer’s Apple Nachos recipe. Let me first say that I am in no way a professional chief. I do like to try new recipes out for fun and sometimes things won’t go as planned. I will be going step-by-step of what I did and let you know what worked and what didn’t. These apple nachos were made for a Super Bowl Party and were delicious!
Original List of Ingredients:
- 3 crispy and slightly tart apples
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 3 tbsp creamy natural peanut butter
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- 1/4 cup pecans
- 1/4 cup flaked unsweetened coconut
- 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
* So when I made this I added 3 more apples since this was for a Super Bowl party and I accidentally bought walnuts instead of pecans (oops!). The original recipe was vegan, but I didn’t see vegan chocolate chips at my grocery store and I didn’t feel like going to Whole Foods…I just went with the regular chips.
Prep Yo Stuff
Standard stuff here; wash and cut your apples. Now the original recipe doesn’t call for peeling your apples, but I know a few people that actually don’t like the “skin” of the apple. So I went ahead and peeled them. I didn’t see any problems later on by doing this.
Mix Yo Stuff
I added the apples slices (yes mine are not gorgeous like Amy Kramer’s, but they still serve their purpose), lemon juice and nuts into a large bowl. I mixed them all up and leave them there as I turned my attention to the peanut butter.
Some People Just Want to Watch The World Melt
Next the recipe says, “Then I melted some peanut butter–until it was super runny–and drizzled it all over the apples.” I’m not really a chief, so I looked up the best way to melt some peanut butter. One site recommended, adding water to it and placing it on a stove on low heat. I did that….but the peanut butter never got runny. I tried added more water, but it just looked like oatmeal at the end. I ended up using it.
I added the peanut butter, chocolate chips and coconut flakes to the bowl and mixed it all up. Even though it doesn’t look like the original, still tasted great! If you love peanut butter and apples, try this one out!
