Crock Pot Starbucks Caramel Apple Cider
MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day: Autumn just screams apples, caramel, and warm drinks. The Caramel Apple Cider is all three rolled into one easy recipe.
Ingredients for Crock Pot Starbucks Caramel Apple Cider:
- 64 ounce bottle apple juice
- 16 tablespoons caramel syrup (i.e.: Archer Farm’s Caramel Coffee Syrup, Amoretti Premium Syrup, or Torani Caramel Syrup as these syrups are thinner or make your own, below)
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- Whipped Cream
- Hershey’s Caramel Topping
Ingredients for Homemade Caramel Syrup:
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
Instructions for Homemade Caramel Syrup:
- Add brown sugar and white sugar to a saucepan.
- Add water and stir well. Bring to a slow boil and remove from heat.
- Add cinnamon and stir well. (The cinnamon won’t dissolve completely.)
- Store in a sealed container in the fridge for a few weeks.
Instructions for Crock Pot Starbucks Caramel Apple Cider:
- Mix together caramel syrup and cinnamon with a whisk.
- Pour sauce in the bottom of a crock pot.
- Pour entire bottle of apple juice on top of the sauce.
- Cover with lid and cook on low for four hours, or high for two hours.
- Top with whipped cream and Hershey’s caramel topping. Microwave topping to make it easier to drizzle.
- I thought it would be a great idea to make this in the crock pot. It takes seconds to put in the crock pot, and it makes the whole room smell delicious.
- You could easily take this to a party, or just have it on a cold, winter’s day!
- If you do not want to make this in the crock pot, but a single serving, just divide the recipe by 5, layer the ingredients the same way, heat it up in the microwave, and top with caramel syrup!
- For the topping, I do recommend using something like Hershey’s Caramel Syrup.
- Also, some of the cinnamon will likely come to the top of the crock-pot; this is okay! Just give it a good stir before serving.
