Caramel Apple Cider



So my Target has a Starbucks.  I don't know if all Targets do, but mine does and every time I'm finished overspending at Target I am always temped by the smell of coffee that costs too much.  I gave up drinking regular coffee a couple years ago for health reasons, but that doesn't detour me from the decaffeinated versions of all their delicious beverages.  Not being a huge fan of the pumpkin spice latte (I know, blasphemy) I often turn to their caramel apple cider dink in the fall.

 One day, while watching my barista make said carmel apple drink, I had a moment of realization that I could recreate this at home for a lot less per cup.  Especially given that this is that time of year when I still have left over ice cream toppings in my fridge because it was just summer like three minutes ago.

I have been making my Caramel Apple Cider with store bought caramel sauce and Redi Whip cause that is what I had in the fridge but if you are feeling especially sassy, this caramel sauce would be really dreamy mixed up in some apple cider.


Caramel Apple Cider

makes 1 serving

  • Apple Cider-this year I got some here, but in the past I have gotten great cider here and here
  • Caramel Sauce-storebought or homemade
  • Whipped Cream

Pour apple cider in a microwave safe mug.  Heat for a minute to a minute and thirty seconds.  Drizzle in a scoop on caramel sauce.  Top with whipped cream and more caramel sauce.  Feel awesome cause you didn't spend $4 at Starbucks for this drink.
