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