Apple “Nachos” with Vegan Peanut Butter Caramel Sauce

This afternoon I felt like surprising my girls with a sweet (but healthy) treat so I made them a plate of apple “nachos” to share.

They loved this sweet snack, since they are always snacking on apples. I decided to spiff up their favorite snack by cutting apples into slices, drizzling them with a vegan peanut butter caramel sauce and adding a sprinkling of vegan chocolate chips and unsalted shelled peanuts.

Nobody had any complaints about that! 🙂
