Spiced Caramel Apple Cider

November has passed in a flash and here we are, it’s almost Thanksgiving! I’m freaking out about this because I just got back from vacation and I’m having a hard time adjusting to normal life again. We spent half the week in a secluded cabin in the Smokey mountains and the other half in Asheville, NC, which is a pretty little town with lots of wonderful restaurants. I had such a good time that I’m already mentally planning a trip back to the same area next year!

I didn’t mean to take such a long break from posting but between work deadlines and vacation it didn’t leave much time for cooking this month. But thanks to how easy this recipe is, I did have a chance to whip up this delicious apple cider in my spare time. I wanted to post it before Thanksgiving because it’s easy to make ahead of time and would be an excellent addition to any holiday get-together, particularly if you serve a nice piece of pie along with it.

It couldn’t be simpler: take apple cider, add a bit of orange juice, stir in caramel sauce and cook with some aromatic spices until your kitchen smells amazing. Drink!

You can make this in a slow cooker or oven. I even tried making it on my stove top to save some time. It worked fine but just make sure it doesn’t come to a boil or the cream from the caramel will separate. (I learned this the hard way!) Other than the 10 minutes it takes to make the caramel this is about as hands-off as a recipe can get. The end result is a sweet and pleasantly spiced apple cider. The caramel is the star of this recipe, so if you love the taste of caramel you will want to make this drink soon!

Copycat Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice Recipe

Apple flavored EVERYTHING is very common in our house during the fall and winter. As a child, I can recall always having apple cider and donuts very often, hence my addiction to Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice. The flavors are both sweet and tart. YUM!

I love making my own homemade Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice. So much more convenient than taking a trip and spending $’s that are not needed.

If you are a fan of cider or a fan of Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice, you will find this CopyCat Starbucks Recipe highly addicting, ha ha! Plus the ingredients are so simple.

INGREDIENTS
Cinnamon Dolce Syrup Ingredients
1 cup Water
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon

Drink Ingredients
2 cup Motts Apple Juice
3 pumps Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Syrup (approx 2 tbsp)
Caramel Topping (I use a squeeze bottle)
Whipped Cream

DIRECTIONS
Make syrup by bringing ingredients to a boil lower heat and simmer until reduced by half (about 5 minutes).
Allow to cool and store in a resealable container.
Place apple juice and syrup in microwaveable container and stir.
Microwave for approximately 2 minutes.
Top with whipped cream
Add caramel topping.


Caramel Apple Cider

Once you’ve made some Spiced Apple Cider, or if you simply happen to have a bottle of storebought cider in the back of the fridge, it is a snap to make one of my favorite wintertime drinks, Caramel Apple Cider. I was first turned onto this drink on a visit to Starbucks, where it is generally available year-round but is often featured on the menu boards during the winter. The drink seems to retain heat much better than just about anything else, so not only does it taste great, but it keeps your hands warm when it is snowy outside!

The Starbucks version of this drink is made by steaming apple cider until it is very hot, then adding caramel and whipped cream. I start mine with homemade cider and heat it up in a saucepan if I am going to be serving a crowd and in a mug in the microwave if I’m only serving myself. Once the cider is steaming hot, stir in about 1 1/2 tbsp caramel sauce, then add whipped cream and another drizzle of caramel. Use any kind of caramel for this drink, whether it’s homemade sauce or your favorite topping brand – I’ve even melted solid caramels into it in a pinch and it turned out very well. I often add a very small pinch of salt to the caramel on top for that salted caramel effect, too.

The sweetness of the caramel highlights the sweetness of the apples in the cider, while the whipped cream on top is a nice, cool contrast to the steamy beverage below. And the caramel on top? Why, that’s just an excuse to eat even more caramel. As though I needed one.

Caramel Apple Cider
12-oz plain or Spiced Apple Cider
1 1/2 tbsp caramel sauce
whipped cream, for topping
additional caramel sauce, for topping
small pinch salt (optional)

Heat cider on the stovetop or in the microwave until it is steaming. Pour into a large mug. Stir in caramel sauce.
Top with lightly sweetened whipped cream and a drizzle of additional caramel sauce. If desired, add a small pinch of salt to the caramel on top.


I&rsquove been &ldquotesting&rdquo this cocktail all week long.

I&rsquom normally not a whiskey drinker (but don&rsquot tell my coworkers or bandmates because many of them are big fans), but when I saw Salted Caramel Crown Royal at the store recently I snatched that up like it was the last box of Count Chocula for the next year.

You see, the only time that whiskey and I are ever friends is in the winter months at band practice when I like to sip hot apple cider (usually the packet kind, I&rsquom not fancy) with a healthy dose of whiskey in there. For the vocal cords, of course. Purely for the craft, you know.

Well, I LOVE caramel apple everything, like this caramel apple tarts, and my apple crumble pie recipe that ALWAYS gets a healthy dose of caramel on top of the big scoop of French vanilla ice cream that MUST go on top of it.

I even MAKE caramel myself you guys. Sometimes even the REALLY old fashioned way with WHITE SUGAR. That is no joke. Maybe it isn&rsquot even caramel + apple that I like, but just caramel itself. It shows up a lot here, is all I&rsquom saying.

How to make spiked hot apple cider

First &ndash don&rsquot do what I usually do and crack open a packet of the powdered spiced cider. It has its place, but for something really special you need to get the big guns out.

Go buy this year&rsquos batch of Honeycrisp unfiltered apple cider, or your favorite variety. MAJOR &ldquoyou have your crap together&rdquo fall bonus points if you bring home some cider from an actual orchard that you went to visit to pick pumpkins or something because kudos and props and all of those other things. I haven&rsquot been to an orchard in like 4 or 5 years.

Back when we lived in Michigan for a couple of years, I used to frequent an orchard and it was amazing. I actually hosted karaoke there once a week during the peak season, and while it was COLD and sometimes miserable, I always had such a great time there with all of the kids passing through, and the teenagers with their big groups of friends, and the occasional couple crooning love songs to each other.

Anyway &ndash back to the cider.

Start with the best cider you can find, or you know &ndash whatever you picked up at the grocery store last week that your kids haven&rsquot demolished yet.

Next &ndash get thyself this Crown Royal. Regular will definitely do if you aren&rsquot a flavored booze fan, but the Salted Caramel Apple is like &ndash well. Let&rsquos just say I&rsquom going to be keeping a bottle in reserve here since I assume it is a very seasonal offering.

Once you do that, the next part is the WHIPPED CREAM. Because it took this drink from &ldquoOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHH that&rsquos good&rdquo RIGHT into &ldquoLike WHOA&rdquo territory. Like, &ldquowhoa I&rsquove already snapchatted and made this for all of my people because I think they will love it so much.&rdquo

How to make cinnamon-spiced whipped cream

This one is super simple. For 4 drinks, whip one cup of extra heavy whipping cream with 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, and a dash of vanilla. Whip it, and whip it good. You want it to form stiff peaks and not melt into the hot cider too quickly.


Caramel Apple Cider Cookies

These cookies are one of my favorite recipes to bake in the fall.

CARAMEL APPLE CIDER COOKIES

I’ve been avoiding blogging because I’m not sure the last few weeks of a crazy pregnant women should be documented.

You don’t really want to know that instead of craving chocolate I’ve been craving Glade Clean Linen carpet deodorizer. It’s definitely some form of pica.

I have enough non-crazy genes left in me to actually abstain from eating it, but if I could I would. So instead of having dessert I find random reasons to sprinkle this on a 2ࡨ foot area of carpet and vacuum so that I can at least smell it.

It has the same affect for me. Last pregnancy my pica problem materialized in the form of Lysol lemon disinfecting wipes.

…or do you really want to know that my baby girl has a mullet…in the womb.The one advantage of being high risk is that I get a detailed ultrasound every week.

I asked yesterday if the baby had hair and the tech said, “Yes. In the back.”

Awesome. She’s all set for late nights with daddy watching Swamp People.

…or that the only reason I go to the gym lately is so that I can look at food on Pinterest while I’m stretching. Nope. Didn’t think so.

I like mine heated up in the microwave for about 5 seconds to make sure the caramel is nice and gooey. I think they would be great with a warm cup of hot cocoa.

Caramel Apple Spice Ingredients

This recipe uses ingredients you probably already have at home. If you have a well-stocked spice rack, then you should be set.

Quick Tips:

  • Whole cinnamon sticks are best: You might be tempted to use dried cinnamon, but it doesn&rsquot have the same flavor.
  • Use whole cloves: The whole cloves will have a stronger taste and fill your water with more spice than if you used dried cloves.
  • Jarred allspice is better than homemade: Allspice is actually a berry from a tree in Jamaica. The flavor tastes like a combination of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. I used all of those spices in this recipe, so it&rsquos best to use the allspice instead of doubling up on the other spices.
  • Raw apple cider vinegar: Both raw and regular apple cider vinegar are made from the juice of crushed apples. You&rsquoll normally see them labeled as &ldquofiltered&rdquo or &ldquounfiltered.&rdquo The difference is that raw &ndash or unfiltered &ndash is usually organic and unpasteurized. It goes through less processing.
  • ChocZero Caramel Syrup &ndash This is what makes it taste like apple pie! Drizzle this on top of the whipped cream and you get all the caramel taste without the carbs.
  • Whipped Cream &ndash Always make your own. It&rsquos really easy, you just combine heavy whipping cream with a splash of vanilla and some low-carb sweetener. Whip it with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.

Apple Cider Caramels

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

All the flavors of a tall glass of spiced apple cider wrapped up into one little caramel. These things are decadently delicious! They have got to be the most flavorful caramels I’ve ever eaten. I love how they’re chewy and soft all at once, and they are creamy and buttery (unlike that caramel you’d buy at the grocery store). And their scent is heavenly.

When you pair their sweetness with with saltiness of Maldon or Fleur de Sel wonders happen (I’d highly recommend using one or the other because these caramels have a high concentrated sweetness so I think they need some salt to balance that out).

This was my first time making apple cider caramels and it won’t be my last. I love the flavor of apple cider especially when those fall spices are added. It just one of those things that will carry memories with it, like thinking of that stroll through the pumpkin patch while holding a cup of warm apple cider in your mittens.

Just be careful when you are boiling the cider, I learned the hard way, keep a close eye on it during the last 10 minutes. Let’s just say my first attempt at reducing the cider (which I’d never done before) didn’t go over so well because it does begin to thicken and turn to a rich caramel like sauce near the end, and it will rapidly begin to reduce (which I had no idea).

I set a timer for 5 minutes near the end, went upstairs while I was waiting for the timer to go off and came back to a pot filled with black mess, my daughter called it “coal.” Kinda funny, kinda sad. Oh don’t we hate those moments though.

You are going to love these sweetly spiced, apple flavored little candies! They would make the perfect gift for family or friends!


Other Equipment

The directions are simple: just mix everything up in your slow cooker. Make sure to stir the syrup in well so it doesn’t just sit at the bottom. As you stir, the liquid will become really light-colored and may look a bit cloudy, but it will get darker and clearer as it cooks.

Once everything is mixed together, turn your slow cooker on low. Let it go for at least 4 hours so the spices have time to steep. Once you’re done cooking, carefully remove the cinnamon sticks and cloves.

Then ladle it out and enjoy your homemade caramel apple spice!

I’m also excited that pumpkin spice lattes are back in season. What are your favorite fall drinks?
