So this is a new segment in the "Let's Talk Board Games" live show, where we talk geeky snacks to go alongside those strenuous Dungeons and Dragons game sessions, or your board game marathons. Some months they will be healthy, and others are a little bit naughty. They will be great to share with friends or loved ones during those all important gaming sessions, where you need a snack.
Every recipe will be easy and quick to do!
Time: 5 minutes
Apple corer (optional)
Microwave or bain-marie
Hand blender/food processor
Suitable for vegetarians (or vegans depending on your choice of chocolate chips and peanut butter/caramel sauce)
Depending on you choice of toppings, can easily be made gluten free.
Original recipe not suitable for people with nut allergies.
2 x Apples of your choice (we used Pink Ladies)
2tsp Peanut butter (smooth or crunchy) (Caramel sauce if you do not like peanut butter)
50g Pistachio nuts (shelled)
50g Pecan nuts
50g Dark chocolate chips
(if you want no nuts you can crumble up honeycomb)
1) Chop your apples into slices, making sure to remove the core.
2) Add your pecans and pistachios into a hand blender or food mixer until roughly chopped.
3) Add 2 teaspoons of peanut butter into a microwavable bowl and heat 30 seconds in the microwave to melt. If you do not have a microwave you can instead melt the peanut butter using a bain-marie .
4) Layer your apples into a serving bowl or plate, whatever you prefer!
5) Sprinkle your chopped nuts, and chocolate chips. Topping off with a drizzle of the melted peanut butter.
Voilà Apple Nachos - enjoy!
Please remember if you are preparing the non-nut related version for anyone allergic (or other adapted versions for other allergies), it is best to prepare the allergen-free version first. Please wash your hands and equipment and keep the preparation separate, making sure to wash your hands and equipment thoroughly in between if you have touched any allergens. In our video, having them side by side was for demonstration purposes only and should not be done in this way for anyone allergic to nuts due to risk of cross contamination.
