Do you prefer chocolate 🍫 or peanut butter 🥜?

If you like both these loaded apple nachos are for you!

Loaded Apple Nachos

Any kind of dessert or snack containing these two is right up my alley.  My current obsession is sliced apples drizzled with melted dark chocolate and peanut butter.  Sometimes I’ll even throw some coconut flakes and toasted macadamia nuts on top.

You can make a large batch for game day or parties, which in my experience always goes over well.  Just make sure to squeeze some citrus juice from a lime, lemon, or orange juice over the apples to prevent browning.  I forgot to add some to mine before I took this picture, whoops!  Citrus fruits contains ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), which helps prevent enzymatic browning in apples.

When choosing what kind of peanut butter to use I typically go for a creamy consistency with no added sugar or oils.  For this recipe I used this Santa Cruz peanut butter , just make sure to give it a good stir once you open the jar.

One fun fact about me is for part of my childhood I grew up on an apple orchard in PA.

What’s your favorite snack or dessert right now?
