Caramel Apple Cider

Caramel Apple Cider

Warm and cozy homemade caramel apple cider for those cold winter nights. Easy to make and cheaper then buying it from Starbucks!

Caramel Apple Cider

So my Target has a Starbucks.  I don’t know if all Targets do, but mine does and every time I’m finished overspending at Target I am always temped by the smell of coffee that costs too much.  I gave up drinking regular coffee a couple years ago for health reasons, but that doesn’t detour me from the decaffeinated versions of all their delicious beverages.  Not being a huge fan of the pumpkin spice latte (I know, blasphemy) I often turn to their caramel apple cider dink in the fall.

One day, while watching my barista make said carmel apple drink, I had a moment of realization that I could recreate this at home for a lot less per cup.  Especially given that this is that time of year when I still have left over ice cream toppings in my fridge because it was just summer like three minutes ago.

I have been making my Caramel Apple Cider with store bought caramel sauce and Redi Whip cause that is what I had in the fridge but if you are feeling especially sassy, this caramel sauce would be really dreamy mixed up in some apple cider.

Caramel Apple Cider

makes 1 serving

  • Apple Cider-this year I got some here, but in the past I have gotten great cider here and here
  • Caramel Sauce-store bought or homemade
  • Whipped Cream-I like whipping it myself but the stuff from the can-also an excellent choice.

Pour apple cider in a microwave safe mug.  Heat for a minute to a minute and thirty seconds.  Drizzle in a scoop on caramel sauce.  Top with whipped cream and more caramel sauce.  Feel awesome cause you didn’t spend $4 at Starbucks for this drink.
