Slow Cooker Hot Caramel Apple Cider

Total Time
Prep 0 mins

Another great recipe for this as I know there are many. Give it a try and see for yourself. I think it tastes similar to Starbucks version! I leave the bottle of Smucker's Ice Cream topping right by the crock pot so guests can use as little or as much caramel as they choose!!..FABULOUS!!

Used apple juice instead of cider. Very tasty! My only complaint is that I just didn't get that caramel taste. Perhaps a shot of barista strength caramel syrup would have helped with that.

I've made this over and over, I use slightly less cloves as per my tastes.

This is great! I have never had Starbucks cider, so can't compare it, but since I can make this at home, I'll never have to spend big bucks at Starbucks:) Made for tag game at
