Guest Post: Caramel Apple Cider from Melissa at Melissa’s Cuisine


Today I am pleased to welcome another guest blogger!  Melissa from Melissa’s Cuisine will be sharing her Caramel Apple Cider! Doesn’t that sound delicious? Everyone please say hi to Melissa!
Hi everyone!
I’m Melissa, from Melissa’s Cuisine.   I like to think that my blog has something for everyone–whether you’re looking for a show stopping dessert, a sweet treat, or a quick dinner–I have you covered!  I’m thrilled to be posting here at Simply Sweet Home today.

It finally started feeling like Christmas where I live.  In fact, we even had a little bit of snow over the past few days.  I don’t know about you, but when it’s cold outside, there’s nothing better than a hot drink to warm you inside and out!

This Caramel Apple Cider is the perfect cold weather drink.  The cider is heated in the slow cooker, so the hands-on time is quite minimal.  Plus, your house will smell amazing while you’re making it!  I served this at Thanksgiving and I guarantee it will make another appearance at our Christmas celebrations!

Caramel Apple Cider

Serves 8


1 (64 ounce) bottle of apple juice

6 cinnamon sticks

8 Tablespoons caramel ice-cream topping

1.  Pour the apple cider into the pot of a slow cooker.  Add the cinnamon sticks.

2.  Heat on low for 6-8 hours, until the cider is hot and the cinnamon sticks have uncurled and are soft.

3.  Carefully ladle the hot cider into mugs.

4.  Stir 1 Tablespoon of caramel ice-cream topping into each mug of cider right before serving.


Thanks for having me today, Jerri!
