I’m Melissa, from Melissa’s Cuisine. I like to think that my blog has something for everyone–whether you’re looking for a show stopping dessert, a sweet treat, or a quick dinner–I have you covered! I’m thrilled to be posting here at Simply Sweet Home today.
It finally started feeling like Christmas where I live. In fact, we even had a little bit of snow over the past few days. I don’t know about you, but when it’s cold outside, there’s nothing better than a hot drink to warm you inside and out!
This Caramel Apple Cider is the perfect cold weather drink. The cider is heated in the slow cooker, so the hands-on time is quite minimal. Plus, your house will smell amazing while you’re making it! I served this at Thanksgiving and I guarantee it will make another appearance at our Christmas celebrations!
Caramel Apple Cider
1 (64 ounce) bottle of apple juice
6 cinnamon sticks
8 Tablespoons caramel ice-cream topping
1. Pour the apple cider into the pot of a slow cooker. Add the cinnamon sticks.
2. Heat on low for 6-8 hours, until the cider is hot and the cinnamon sticks have uncurled and are soft.
3. Carefully ladle the hot cider into mugs.
4. Stir 1 Tablespoon of caramel ice-cream topping into each mug of cider right before serving.
Thanks for having me today, Jerri!
