Surprise your kids with a healthy plate of nachos! Easy Caramel Apple Nachos are crispy, sweet, crunchy and totally habit-forming. A great sweet treat that’s healthy and light.
Day 2 of school starts today and I’ll be off doing a little segment with my friends at the Fox 29 Good Day Philadelphia studio. Dad’s in charge BUT when dad’s in charge…isn’t funny how mom seems to have everything together for them, complete with breakfast options to make their morning go smoothly. Even though my morning consisted of saying things like “you can’t wear a paper towel on your leg to school today”….”you have to eat something or you will starve”….”you can’t wear the same clothes you’ve been sweating in for three days straight.” That’s pretty much how the morning started. Then he boarded the bus, I wept like a baby (not really…just kinda…secretly) and then he came home happy to report that school is so AWESOME! Isn’t that awesome?!?!
And to keep the awesomeness alive on the awesomest first day of school, I surprised my little guy with a plate full of NACHOS! But not just any nachos….Easy Caramel Apple Nachos drizzled with a marshmallowy sour cream sauce and sweet, gooey caramel sauce. Then they’re sprinkled with fun stuff like dried cherries, crunchy granola and mini chocolate chips. They are seriously amazing….and awesome. I wasn’t sure if the mini boss man would love them but he totally devoured about half the plate.
What I love most about these Easy Caramel Apple Nachos is they are a snap to make and healthy to boot. We could eat them every single night but since I like to mix things up…I’ll be sharing these super easy Tuna Salad Tacos with my Fox Friends, as well as, these Oatmeal Raisin Bites and this Pizza Snack Mix just to give even the pickiest of kids some choices after their very long day at school.
Really, there’s nothing better than a tasty after school snack to help your kids fuel back up before heading to the soccer field, the karate studio or the backyard. Stay tuned because I have more concoctions happening in the kitchen like these Pumpkin Pie Bites or our very favorite Blueberry Muffins.
