Y’all…fall is upon us! I am seriously obsessed with everything fall – fall food, college football, hay rides, pumpkin patches, foliage, cooler weather, falling leaves, Halloween, sweaters, boots…seriously, you name it, I love it. In my opinion, there is nothing better than sitting outside on a cool fall day (I’m talking 50-55 degrees), wrapped in a nice soft sweater, with a hot mug of apple cider, and watching my babies play in the leaves. I mean, it’s perfect. This year I decided to whip up some spiced caramel apple cider in my slow cooker, because…why not? It fills my house with that amazing fall aroma, and it warms my soul! The recipe for this Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Cider is delicious and super easy.
When I first whipped this up, and started drinking it, I had totally forgotten the whipped cream. So, in true Starbucks fashion, I added some. I’m glad I did, because it was sooo good! AND the caramel drizzle?! Yes, you need that too.
Like I mentioned earlier, this recipe is SUPER simple. You only need a handful of ingredients and then you just let it cook up, so easy! I didn’t go the homemade route fro my whipped cream or caramel this time, but you can, if you want. I feel like this recipe is so easy that using a dollop of store bought whipped cream and a little drizzle of caramel sauce isn’t too bad…I mean, I couldn’t tell the difference.
- 64 ounces apple cider or apple juice (I have used both and they both work great)
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup caramel sauce (or topping, found in the ice cream aisle), plus more for garnish
- Optional garnishes: whipped cream, caramel sauce, sliced apples
- 1. Combine cider/juice, ground cinnamon, and caramel sauce in the slow cooker; whisk well to combine.
- 2. Cover and cook on low for 3-5 hours (however, you can't really overcook this). Serve in mason jars or mugs, top with whipped cream, caramel drizzle, and garnish with apple slices. Enjoy!
