Last year I saw several recipes online for Caramel Apple Cider. I love the combination of caramel and apples and knew I had to try caramel apple cider.
I made this many times during the fall and holidays last year and we loved it. I tweaked it a little here and there to get it just how my family likes it.
What I love about this recipe is that it is easy to scale it down and make just 1 cup for yourself or you can just as easily make a big pot of it to serve at your holiday dinner or party.
You can also easily use apple cider for this instead of apple juice. I first saw the apple juice version on Crockpot 365 and have made it with apple juice ever since.
I make it with apple juice mainly because it is easy to find and keep on hand, but if you have apple cider or prefer it, just use that in place of the apple juice.
Caramel Apple Cider
- 32 ounce of apple juice
- 4 tablespoons caramel sauce
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon (more if you like cinnamon)
- Combine all ingredients together in a pan and stir. Heat over medium low until heated through. This can also be done in the crock pot. Or if you just want one cupful like my kids often do, fill a mug with apple juice and add about 1 tablespoon of caramel to it, sprinkle with cinnamon, and heat in the microwave.
- Serve and enjoy!
- This is really good served with whipped cream.
