Warm and Soothing Caramel Apple Cider

caramel.apple.ciderThis is one of my comfort drinks.  Its sweet, hot, and smells like the holidays.  It also takes about 2 minutes to make, and is something the whole family can enjoy.  I need things like this in my life right now.  Maybe you do too.


Hot Caramel Apple Cider

Warm up some apple cider (or apple juice) in a small pot on your stove.  Medium low heat will warm it up in just a few minutes.  You don’t want it to boil, just come to a nice steamy simmer.  Pour in 2 Tablespoons, or more to taste, of some caramel.  (I am totally in love with Fran’s Chocolate’s Real Caramel Sauce right now!). Stir till combined.

If you’re having a crowd, you can also keep this simmering in a crock pot for a number of hours and serve as needed.  Just keep it on low, so you don’t scorch the caramel.


Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, or without- however you like it.

Now sit back and warm up while you gaze at the Christmas tree, or watch your little ones play.  That’s how I like to enjoy it at least.

Merry Christmas everyone!
