Dessert Nachos

So, I was invited to participate in a fun caramel contest, and while there were so many options to make I finally decided on one that would great to munch on through football season, dessert nachos

I know I’m not the only one out there that loves nachos. Go ahead and try to pretend like you are above the cheesy, goopy, stick to your arteries nachos, but I am totally not buying it. In fact, I’d even go so far as to say that you probably cannot resist nachos. You may not think about them, but if you’re at a baseball game and your friend plops down on the bench next to you, you know you’re going to snag one of those cripsy, cheesey, delicious… oh my gosh I need nachos. CRAP. Good thing I’ve got Tropical Nachos.

Now, we’ve already established that as cool, and healthy as we believe ourselves to be we cannot turn down a plate of nachos, let’s talk about how much better they are as dessert. MMMMMMMMM Chocolate. First of all, I will completely admit that I am a cheese lover. Yup, cheese over chocolate. Every. Single. Time. Well, not this time. It all started with the wontons.

I recently judged a funeral potatoes contest at the state fair. (Psst, don’t worry, I had no clue what funeral potatoes were until I moved to Utah. I hate to admit it, but they are awesome! Oh cheesy deliciousness) Anyway, Mr. Handsome and I reaaaaaallly wanted an elephant ear while we were there, but alas, we didn’t really have enough time, so we headed home. The next day I still wanted one and when I saw the wontons in the fridge they sparked an idea. Fried wontons in cinnamon sugar! Oh!! And then I could use the caramel from the contest, loads of chocolate and candy bars. oh heavens. Let’s just say I got pretty full that afternoon, and while I may not have thoroughly enjoyed all three football games Mr. Handsome watched that day, I did enjoy the food.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 1 Package Wonton Wrappers cut in half on the diagonal (creating triangles)
  • 1 loaf Caramel Peter's
  • 1 Cup Baking Chocolate Peter’s Milk Chocolate, This comes in a block, so you will need to chop off chunks
  • 1/2 Cup White Chocolate Buttons Mercken’s
  • 2 Snickers Candy Bars
  • 2 Apples Large, Granny Smith, Chopped
  • Sea Salt Flakes
  • 1-2 Cups Cinnamon Sugar
  • Peanut or Canola oil for frying


  • Place the cinnamon sugar in a pie plate, set aside.
  • Chop the snickers, and set aside.
  • Chop the apple, and set aside.
  • Heat a large, high edged skillet over medium high heat, with oil about 1/3 the way up.
  • Once the oil starts to pop, start adding the wontons one by one.
  • Allow them to cook until almost golden and using tongs or a spider, flip the wontons over. Once they reach golden they quickly turn dark, so it is truly best to flip right before that point.
  • Remove to a paper towel lined plate.
  • After they have drained a moment, add them to the cinnamon sugar, tossing to coat.
  • Place the caramel in a microwave safe dish, heat on high for one minute, stir and heat another minute at 50% power.
  • Stir again and if needed continue melting at 50% power in 30 second increments.
  • Melt the milk chocolate and the Mercken’s white buttons in separate bowls, by placing them in the microwave at high power for 30 seconds and then 50% power for 30 second intervals until the chocolate is almost smooth, stirring at each interval.
  • Remove from the microwave, and stir until the remaining little chunks melt.
  • Place the cinnamon sugar wontons on a large platter, top with apple, candy bars chunks, caramel, chocolate and a sprinkling of sea salt.
