Prep Time20 minutes mins

Total Time25 minutes mins
Servings: 4 servings
- 2 apples, sliced (I used honeycrisp but empire or granny smith would also work well here)
- 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
- 2 tbsp caramel sauce (I used dulce de leche but you can always just use the kind you see in the ice cream isle)
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp cream/milk/water/butter (for melting chocolate chips; use whatever you have on hand)
- 1 tbsp peanut pieces
In a medium-sized frying pan, heat coconut over med-high heat until just browned and toasted, stirring constantly for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat right away and transfer to a bowl then set aside.
Melt chocolate chips with cream, milk, water or butter in microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring halfway through. Add to plastic bag. Microwave dulce de leche if using for 30 seconds until just warm and add to another plastic bag. Cut small holes at the bottoms of each bag.
Slice and core apples, spreading half on a large plate. Sprinkle toasted coconut over apples, then drizzle chocolate and dulce de leche overtop. Add peanuts. Add remaining apple slices, then repeat process. Serve and enjoy right away!
Make your own caramel sauce or use a store-bought version.
Add on some more toppings like crushed pretzels, powdered sugar and cinnamon.
Store the leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. Make sure to sprinkle some lemon juice overtop so the apples don’t brown!
