Dessert Nachos

METHOD

  1. Take the quartered apples and slice them thinly lengthwise (about 5 slices per quarter). Arrange apple slices on a large plate or small platter.
  2. Put chocolate, milk and vanilla extract in a small pan over medium-low heat. Stir constantly with a rubber spatula, making sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the pan.
  3. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and combined with the other ingredients. It should be silky and smooth. Remove from heat – do not overcook.
  4. Drizzle chocolate over the arranged apple slices and sprinkle with chosen toppings.
  5. Serve immediately.

* NOTES:

Another option is to arrange the apple slices on small individual plates (about ½ an apple per person), drizzle with chocolate and serve, leaving each person to choose their own toppings at the table. A great idea for a birthday party!
