3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Cider

Hi there! Join Sarah on Facebook and Pinterest to keep up with what’s new at lifeshouldcostless.

MMMMMMM. Just thinking about how good this Cider was on Halloween makes me want to make a special trip into town just to get more ingredients so I can have some right now. However, it is SO RICH that it would not be a good idea to drink it on a regular basis…it’s definitely a Holiday only recipe. The kind that you will look forward to all year and definitely never be disappointed. The best part about this particular recipe is that it is so simple a child could easily make it… just what we need during the holidays, one less complex dish to prepare. It would also be a fun new addition to a cocoa bar.

I’ve seen a few versions of similar recipes out there, and this is my version. I also wanted it to be slow cooker friendly to simplify it, and here’s what I came up with.

Printable Recipe

2 (2 Quart) Spiced Apple Cider (1 Gallon)

1 (16 0z) Carton Cream (I used whipping)
*1 Cup Brown Sugar
Add all ingredients to a 6 or 7-Quart Slow Cooker. Whisk it well. Cover and set your slow cooker on LOW until it reaches your desired temperature (about two hours usually) and then put it on WARM. Stir well and then ladle it into your favorite mug! It will stay yummy all day long as long as you are stirring it occasionally and cover it back up when it’s not being consumed. 

*3/4 C liquid sweetener (Agave) and a Tablespoon or so of Molasses would be an even healthier alternative.
**Read to the end for tips.

It is super simple and my only suggestions are that you get to where you are going to be serving it before you make it. Otherwise it may slosh all over everywhere. It definitely would not do well in a car on the way to someone’s house. Also, that this recipe is going to serve a LOT of people.

 I made it for me and three of my kids on Halloween and after we had had our fill, there was still 2/3rds of it left over. Now I know I need to half  the recipe unless we are having a party… I am pretty sure I’ll be making this for Thanksgiving this year so only a couple of weeks before I get to enjoy it again. ~Sarah
