SLOW COOKER BUTTERSCOTCH CARAMEL APPLE CIDER — Apple cider is infused with butterscotch caramel sauce then warmed in the slow cooker in this comforting fall drink.
There’s nothing better on a chilly day than a warm drink. And this Slow Cooker Butterscotch Caramel Apple Cider is the perfect beverage to serve this fall.
I’m a huge fan of hot chocolate, but this cider, with the flavors of butterscotch and caramel, makes the whole house smell so good while it simmers in the slow cooker.
I mean, it tastes amazing, but I kind of just love holding a warm mug in my hands while I enjoy the aroma of apple, cinnamon and brown sugar. Like I said, this drink is perfect for fall.
And it’s so easy to make–you just add some ice cream topping and brown sugar to prepared apple cider, along with a few cinnamon sticks and a pinch of salt, and you’re good to go.
Since you keep everything warm in a slow cooker, this is great for serving at Halloween parties and other autumn celebrations. If you’re serving a big crowd, the recipe can easily be doubled.
I highly recommend serving this cider with a dollop of whipped cream on top. And maybe an extra shake of ground cinnamon, if you want to be really fancy.
I was able to find butterscotch caramel ice cream topping at my local grocery store. But you could also use a combination of butterscotch topping and caramel topping.
All caramel or all butterscotch would be amazing too. Either way, you’ll be transforming plain old apple cider into something a little extra special.
This hot cider would also be a great addition to a hot cocoa bar. I mean, I have heard there are people who don’t like chocolate……
If you’re looking for a tasty new way to serve up warm apple cider this fall and winter, you really can’t go wrong with this Slow Cooker Butterscotch Caramel Apple Cider. Enjoy!
