When the weather turns cooler, one of my favorite things to make for a family gathering is slow cooker apple cider. This year, I thought it would be fun to mix it up and make slow cooker caramel apple cider. It was a huge hit and the perfect treat on a crisp fall day.
Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Cider
12 cups of apple juice – I bought a gallon and had a little leftover
6 cinnamon sticks
1/2 cup of good quality jarred caramel sauce, plus more for drizzling
Heat apple juice and cinnamon sticks in the slow cooker for about 4 hours on high. Let the cinnamon sticks soften and uncurl. Before serving, stir in 1/2 cup of caramel sauce and serve in heat proof cups. Top with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel.
Recipe note: I use a 5 quart slow cooker
When the apple juice is very hot, the caramel may start to seperate. That’s ok, just give it a stir and it is perfect again.
The really great thing about making this in the slow cooker is the amazing smell that fills your home. I hope you and your family enjoy!
Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Cider pairs perfectly with my Snickerdoodles recipe:
