The days are getting cooler and the nights are definitely getting more crisp. Stay warm with a mug of this delicious Creamy Caramel Apple Cider.
Have you ever had Starbucks’ caramel apple cider? Well, this recipe kind of reminds me of that, with the exception of the price, of course.
You can make this yummy drink in the comfort of your own home and enjoy sipping mug after mug and pay a fraction of the price.
Make sure you’re buying a good quality apple cider, not apple juice! Apple cider is going to have all those warm mulling spices in it that make it a cider. Apple juice just doesn’t have that bold, warm flavor we’re looking for in this recipe, so just be aware of that difference.
Need a bigger batch of cider? No problem, this recipe is easy enough to double or even triple if you’re hosting a larger gathering or for holiday parties.
If you love this delicious cider, you’ll love our Crock-Pot Holiday Punch. This holiday punch is not only ridiculously easy to make but such a delicious comfort drink that’s perfect from autumn to winter. And, it makes enough for larger gatherings like holiday parties and festive events.
Making Creamy Caramel Apple Cider
Pour apple cider into large saucepan and heat on low-medium heat.
Once hot, but not boiling, add in caramel sauce and whisk until caramel sauce is completely melted.
Turn off heat and add in heavy whipping cream. Whisk well to combine.
Pour hot apple cider into four mugs. Top with a good serving of canned whipped topping, a drizzle of caramel sauce and a dash of cinnamon on top, if desired.
Makes four 8 fl. oz. servings.

if I wanted to make this a boozy beverage what alcohol would you recommend I add? Rum, bourbon?
I personally don’t drink but know that either rum or bourbon would work well with this drink. The rum would add a sweeter taste and the bourbon maybe a more richer taste. Maybe try a spiced rum? Or, what about fireball whiskey? I hope you’ll try our recipe out and let me know what you add to it! Take care and happy holidays!
What a wonderful cider for the season! This was so delicious and satisfying not to mention easy to make!
Good morning, Lori!
That’s what we love to hear! It’s a very easy recipe, and reminds me of Starbuck’s version but for for a fraction of the price. Win win!
