This is a wonderful time of year to be a cook. The weather is starting to cool down and summer is almost behind us. Football season is starting and we are all covering our grills and moving inside for some heartier cooking.
This is a great recipe to make for a salty sweet dessert that is perfect for football parties.
The ingredients below are measured out but are simply guidelines based on taste. Me personally, I like a lot of chocolate sauce and marshmallows so the nachos become very rustic and “gooey”. You can adjust this recipe as you see fit. If you really want to go wild you can have some extra caramel sauce and chocolate sauce on the side to serve as “salsa” if you will.
Chocolate – Marshmallow Nachos
3 quarts fried, lightly salted tortilla chips
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup chocolate sauce
2 cups small marshmallows
½ cup chopped, dry roasted, salted peanuts
Powdered sugar to garnish
- Heat your oven to 375 F.
- Place your chips on an oven proof platter (a cast iron skillet works great too).
- Evenly distribute the chocolate chips and chocolate sauce over all the chips, try to get some on each chip.
- Slide the nachos in the oven for about 3 minutes to start melting the chocolate chips. Remove and top with the marshmallows.
- Bake for about 7 to 10 minutes more or until the marshmallows are slightly brown. Top with the peanuts and serve warm.
