CARAMEL APPLE FAQS
Do you have to melt the chocolate for these apple nachos?
You don’t. There’s literally nothing that you have to warm up or melt if you don’t want to. However, if you’re wanting to drizzle chocolate, you can pop the chocolate chips in the microwave for a short amount of time and heat them up that way.
Otherwise, just add the chocolate chips directly onto the apple slices and enjoy.
