How to Make Fruit Nachos

Fruit nachos are a great way to eat something sweet with fruit as the main ingredient. We love using green apples because they are crunchy and tart and a perfect balance when topped with caramel and chocolate. You can also use pears with the apples!

Choose your favorite variety of apple and pear and then slice into thin slices. This makes it a lot easier for kids to eat! The next step is to add your toppings. This recipe calls for caramel, chocolate, almonds white chocolate chips. But you could add lots of different toppings. Here are some ideas:

  • coconut flakes
  • mini chocolate chips
  • granola
  • chopped strawberries
  • melted peanut butter
  • nutella
  • chopped bananas
  • chopped nuts
  • craisins

The possibilities are endless with this super yummy fruit dessert!

Oh my goodness! I am so glad I found your website! Everything looks delicious and (despite my website name) I am a hug fan of healthy food!

Amazing idea! This would work wonderfully on a specialty dinner day. “Today, kids, we are having a mexican fiesta night” and serve this in place of nachos. I love, love, love it!!

Can you please make the recipe printable and be able to add to our recipe box. Thank you! I’m excited to make these this week with the kids!!!
