Warm Spiced Caramel Apple Cider

04 Oct

One of my favorite treats to share with my little guy on chilly days is an “apple coffee” from a well know coffeehouse.  We have so much fun doing it, but it can also be a bit of a splurge…..especially if those tiny little fingers happen to let go of the cup and it spills everywhere.  Haha!  This morning I decided to try my hand at recipe copying, and I think I almost have it…….or at least my son thinks so.  He just thanked me for making today “the best day”!  I think we will be making a few of these this weekend to keep warm!
