🥫 Storage instructions

To store the nachos when assembled, cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. I don’t recommend reheating them, they would become soggy in the microwave, and in the oven the sugars will cause them to burn.

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert tips

  • Try adding spiced caramel, mini chocolate chips, or shredded coconut.
  • The crumble topping iss delicious but optional. You can leave it out and still have delicious apple nachos.
  • For a fun party appetizer, try serving in mason jars. Layer the apples in the jar and top with whipped cream, caramel, and a mini cinnamon sugar pie crust chip.

You can skip cooking the apples for a crunchy topping and better for storing later.
