Hot Caramel Apple Cider

"One morning when it was really cold and raining out, I was doing my Crossing Guard job at the corner I "work" at. A few yards from the corner is a small Espresso/coffee hut. After I got done and was getting ready to leave the corner, one of the girls who works at the espresso hut came up to me and asked me if I wanted either a hot chocolate or a Hot Caramel Apple Cider. I opted for the Hot Caramel Apple Cider. I was so cold and wet that I drank it hot without letting it cool off at all!! It was so good and it immediately started to warm me up. I could taste the caramel in it. A couple of days later when I got one on my own I asked what was in it and the girl who gave me my first one, told me. I think I have the right amounts of ingredients. You can add more caramel sauce and/or vanilla to suit your taste. This recipe can easily be multiplied to serve more people. I am sure you could use apple juice if you don't have apple cider on hand."

    Delicious...and so quick and easy, too!! I have made this three times already because it is so darn good. I did increase the caramel and vanilla measurements to get it so that it was right for my taste. Also, I went the lazy route and mixed all of the ingredients into a 2-cup glass measuring cup. I microwaved it on "high" for 3-4 mins. until it was hot, stirring occasionally. This really hits the spot when you are looking for something to warm your insides :) *Made for Comfort Cafe*

    This is so delicious! I think I'll serve this after dinner on Thanksgiving! Update: I served this in a crockpot on Thanksgiving and it was GONE before I knew it! I mean they picked up the crockpot and poured the last of it out! They LOVED it! Thank you!

    It did warm me right up! So easy to make - I did it in a microwaveable measuring cup, then poured, steaming into my mug. I used Dulce de Leche Mexican style caramel and it was like having dessert!

    The caramel adds just enough sweetness. We added a teaspoon of cinnamon and I forgot the vanila. Tasted great. Served up in a thermal carafe for our block parry. YUM!


I just love to cook. I love to experiment with different recipes and love to get new ones. I love to share my recipes and love to have others taste things I make. I baked a lot while I was living at high school. I have babysat for over 33 years for different people I have cooked meals for them when it was needed. At one time, I babysat 2 children in my apartment and cooked dinner for them, their mom and their grandmother. I loved it. I took care of them for a couple of years. The name AuntWoofieWoof has a very special meaning. I babysat for a family with 3 children in their home several years ago. One day the youngest boy came up to me and said "Aunt Woofie Woof......." and proceeded to say what he had to say. He called me that name for 2 days. When I asked him where he got the name from, his reply was "It was on a Dr Suess tape my momma got me at the Library". :lol: I thought it was so cute that I decided to use it on the internet. I babysat for that family for 8 years!! That little boy is now in middle school. I still see him and his family every now and then. His mom and I keep in touch over the phone. I usually spend Thanksgiving Day with them. It is fun watching the kids grow into fine young adults. The oldest daughter, is in her early 20's, is working and has her own place. She is a beautiful young lady. I am a Substitute Playground Supervisor and a Crossing Guard at an Elementary School. I love both jobs. <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="RSC-HiddenGem-part"title="Photo and Video Sharing"/> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" width=90%> . <img src="">
