Dessert Nachos

This past weekend my Super Bowl dreams were shattered. As a Titans fan, it felt like this could have been the year! Unfortunately, two teams will be going to the Super Bowl, and neither of them will be mine. I will be there for the commercials, a good game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers, and obviously, (and most importantly) the snacks. I’m really glad I tested these dessert nachos over the weekend because I ate the entire plate to ease my pain of the Titans’ loss. But this allowed me to make sure they’re perfect for your Super Bowl watch parties! And what’s a better gameday snack than nachos?!

The salty and sweet combo is always a winner and these nachos make a perfect snack that you can eat all throughout the game. I used Cape Cod Kettle Chips, dark chocolate chips, coconut, and dark chocolate m&ms, but the best part of these is that you can change things up and have all sorts of options, or you could even set up a build-your-own nacho bar! You can use chips or pretzels or popcorn, you can use dark chocolate or milk chocolate or white chocolate, you can add toppings of coconut or m&ms or peanuts. There is so much room for variety in these and you truly can’t go wrong!
