Chocolate Peanut Nachos! National Nachos Day

Today is National Nachos Day. Nachos: a Tex-Mex dish from northern Mexico. Nachos are usually comprised of tortilla chips covered with melted cheese and jalapeno peppers and served as a snack. Sometimes salsa or guacamole is served with Nachos. But this is a Chocolate Blog, so to celebrate today's holiday, make this great dish of Chocolate Nachos. I found this recipe on the Omni Hotel site. Remember, there are some great recipes at Brand hotels, and sometimes Brands you haven't thought about such as hotels! This one was created by the chefs at the Hotel Chain to celebrate the Texas Rangers kick off weekend a few years ago (and so patrons can celebrate at home). This is a great snack just about any time. Love the salty and sweet!

Chocolate Peanut Nachos  

2 cups fried corn chips (salted)
1/2 to 3/4 cup chocolate sauce
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter chips
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts
3/4 cup marshmallows
Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 400F. Put chips on an oven proof plate, pour on warm chocolate sauce, spread chocolate and peanut butter chips evenly. Top with the peanuts and finish with marshmallows. Bake until marshmallows are melted and brown. Dust with powdered sugar.
