Apple Nachos with Marzetti Caramel Dip

Know what goes perfect with fall? APPLES!!

Know what goes perfect with apples? CARAMEL!!

And the perfect caramel pairing with apples this fall is Marzetti Caramel Dips. Marzetti® Caramel Dips are the perfect finishing touch for a variety of party favorites – whether it’s a dip for apples, pears and pretzels or a special ingredient in a delicious dessert. Marzetti Caramel Dips offer the perfect accent or finishing touch to a variety of party favorites including apples, pears, pretzels and even pound cake

I have long been a fan! One of my favorite ways to eat this was by stirring together a tub of Marzetti Old Fashioned Caramel Dip with a tub of whipped cream cheese (has to be the "Whipped" kind). Oh my goodness. Creamy. Caramel-y. With the tartness of a good Granny Smith dipped into it - DELICIOUS!!

But I just explored another way to enjoy Marzetti Caramel Dips. Check out my Apple Nachos!!

  • 3-4 Large Granny Smiths or other tart, firm apple.
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 T butter
  • 1 tub Marzetti Old Fashioned Caramel Dip
  • 1-2 T half & half
  • Chocolate syrup
  • mini chocolate chips, mini Heath crunch crumbles, or chopped peanuts
    • Slice the apples into wedges and arrange in a layered circle on a round platter.
    • Melt the butter and marshmallows in a glass measuring cup in the microwave (about 30 seconds, stirring halfway through is good). Drizzle over apples.
    • Scoop about half the tub of Marzetti Caramel Dip into another glass measuring cup, add the cream. Heat in microwave about 45 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds. Drizzle over apples.
    • Drizzle chocolate syrup over apples.
    • Sprinkle with candy/nut toppings.
    • ENJOY!
