Caramel Sauce

Caramel Apple Nachos

  • 2 apples, cored and sliced
  • 3 tbsp caramel sauce
  • 3 tbsp chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (optional)
  • 1/4 cup toppings of choice (optional)


Caramel Sauce

  • Place dates into a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit for 10 minutes to soften up. Drain.
  • Place all of the ingredients, except for the almond milk, into a small blender, food processor or into a medium bowl and use an emersion blender. Since we are not making a large amount of sauce, a smaller type of blender works best.

  • Blend for 1-2 minutes, slowly pouring in the almond milk. Scraping down the sides of the blender if needed. Dates can be a little tough to blend all the way, but scraping down the sides and turning off the blender and stirring the sauce every 20 seconds or so helps.
