I am proud to be partnering with Imperial Sugar to bring you this tasty recipe! As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

It’s finally October and that means we’ll be planning harvest parties, deciding on Halloween costumes, eating candied apple treats, and celebrating Chocotoberfest!

This time of year, CHOCOLATE Apple Pie Nachos make a fun party dessert. Cinnamon pie dough “tortilla chips” are loaded with a brown sugar apple compote, decadent chocolate ganache, a cinnamon glaze, and slivered almonds.

Even though the pie crust tortilla chips are sturdier than regular tortilla chips, serve these apple pie nachos with plenty of napkins!

The apple pie filling is a simple mixture of diced Gala apples that cooks in just 5-7 minutes with lemon juice and vanilla and is sweetened with Imperial Sugar Light Brown Sugar.

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Pie Crust Tortilla Chips

  • ½ 15 oz. pkg. refrigerated pie crusts
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tablespoon cinnamon

Apple Compote

  • 2 large Gala apples peeled and diced
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Cinnamon Glaze

  • cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2-3 tablespoons slivered or sliced almonds for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll pie dough and cut into 12 triangles and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon and sprinkle over the pie dough. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.

Apple Compote

  • Place diced apples and lemon juice in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until apples begin to change texture, about 5-7 minutes. Do not over cook. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and brown sugar until dissolved.

Chocolate Ganache

  • Heat 1/2 cup heavy cream over medium low heat just until it starts to bubble around the edges. Place chocolate chips in a heat-proof bowl and pour warm cream over top. Allow to sit for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, stir gently until the chocolate is melted and the ganache is the desired consistency. 

Cinnamon Glaze

  • Combine powdered sugar, cinnamon, and milk in a small bowl. Stir until smooth. If needed, add a bit more milk to get the desired consistency.

Assemble Nachos

  • Place triangles on a serving platter and top with apple compote. Drizzle chocolate ganache and cinnamon glaze over top and sprinkle with almonds. Serve immediately.

Granny Smiths are usually my favorite cooking apple, but in this recipe, Gala apples also work well.
