Easy Mulled Caramel Apple Cider
During the fall and winter months, I love to make Mulled Caramel Apple Cider. Spicy and sweet, it’s the perfect finish to a long day working in the yard or sitting by the fire. It’s a fantastically easy thing to make, and you can even make it in a slow cooker! For years I made a simple mulled apple cider, but after finding a caramel sauce that I love, I knew I had to add it to my tried and true recipe for a bump in flavor.
Spices Make the Mulled Caramel Apple Cider Perfect
A spice blend of whole and ground spices make Mulled Caramel Apple Cider perfect. I start with fresh cinnamon sticks and whole cloves for a strong, beautiful flavor that infuses into the Mulled Caramel Apple Cider as it simmers. Ground allspice and nutmeg round out the flavor and add a richness that warms you as you sip.
- 1 gallon fresh apple cider
- 3 (4 inch) sticks of cinnamon, plus more for serving
- 6 whole cloves

- Pour the apple cider into a crock pot.
