Warm, creamy, delicious caramel hot apple cider cooked right in the crock pot, and with only 4 easy ingredients! (Thank you to Truvía® for sponsoring this post.)
You all know of my infinite love for Southern California. Right? I mean, I think I’ve said it a hundred times, if not more. I absolutely love living here. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that we have near perfect weather, because then I would be rubbing it in your face, and that’s not very nice. 😉
Buuuuut…we kinda do.
Except for winter/early spring. Now, we don’t have the whole season change thing which is supposedly beautiful. I’ve never lived in a place that had it. Coming from Arizona originally, California is even more termperate.
Anyway, what was I saying? Oh, winter. We have the weirdest weather in winter (say that 3x fast!). It’s foggy and windy one day, and then blasted hot the next! This week it’s supposed to be mostly cloudy every day. And while last Saturday I was at the beach in a bathing suit, this week I’ll be huddled in sweaters with the fire blazing, drinking a mug of this delicious caramel hot apple cider!
But can you blame me?! I honestly can’t say I’ve had a better warm drink in my life. Although I’m a huge crock pot hot chocolate fan and I have a crazy good wassail recipe, I think this one takes the cake. It’s SO. GOOD. (And when it’s in caps letters, you know it really is that good!)
And it’s so easy to make! There are only 4 ingredients. One of them being Truvía® Brown Sugar Blend. Have you tried it yet? It cooks and tastes just like regular brown sugar, but has 75% fewer calories than regular brown sugar.
So all you need to do is mix Truvía® Brown Sugar Blend with a little heavy whipping cream in a small saucepan. Heat that until the sugar dissolves and then mix with apple cider and water in the crock pot. Shut the lid and let it cook until it’s nice and hot and then pour yourself a mug and sit right by the fire.
