Fall Spice Blend
  1. Make the Fall Spice Blend first by measuring and blending all the spices together, stir well. You won’t use it all, I like to make a double batch to have for another recipe.
Make the Gingerbread Pumpkin Almond Drizzle
  1. In a sauce pan combine all ingredients except the almond butter, stir until well blended.
  2. Simmer on low for 1-2 minutes, this helps the spices to be more fragrant.
  3. Stir in the almond butter until well blended.
  4. Simmer 1-2 minutes longer.
  5. Remove from heat. Stir occasionally until cooled.
  6. Store in a glass container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, in Freezer up to 1 month.
Put together the Gingerbread Pumpkin Nachos up to 1 hour prior to serving.
  1. Cut apples in 4 pieces, remove the core and slice thin. I like to use my mandolin.
  2. Toss sliced apples in 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice to prevent browning.
  3. The apples arrange easier if you fan out and place each quarter after it is cut, your “nacho-look” goes together much easier…trust me! lol!
  4. Arrange apples in a circle, overlapping from the outside to the middle, like nachos. For a small party 2 medium apples will be plenty.
  5. Use 4 medium apples for an event.
  6. Use some of your Gingerbread Pumpkin Almond Drizzle around the bottom of the bottom layer of apples to help the next layer hold a little better.
  7. Drizzle apples with Gingerbread Pumpkin Almond Drizzle.
  8. Sprinkle with toppings, chocolate chips, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, and crystalized ginger.
Recipe Notes

I made two batches of this for two events on the same day.  One held overnight and all day and it was great!

For the smaller event I used a salad plate and 2 medium sized apples.

For the larger potluck event I used a dinner sized plate and 4 medium apples.

Everyone loved this Gingerbread Apple Nachos!  Try it and if you do, post #gingerbreadapplenachos #benourished4life on your post!
