Hot Apple Cider-the easy way!

There are some really great cider recipes out there! My hat's off to the people who take the time to make it from scratch! I, personally, like to make a quicker (just as delicious) version myself. It only requires 5 ingredients & can be made in your crock pot which is nice because it not only makes the cooking process stress free since you no longer have to watch the stove, but it also keeps the cider warm through out the night.

Now that it is finally starting to get cold, I decided it was a great time to make this perfect fall drink! We love taking this in a thermos when we go to the pumpkin patch or really to accompany any other fall activity! It's also perfect for any holiday themed shindig you may be throwing this year!

Honestly though, I'm having a hard time deciding if I should make this crock pot apple cider for our Halloween party or if I should make my fave Mexican hot cocoa. It's tough. I really will probably end up just doing both and pick up an extra crock pot so they can both be kept warm lol

But ya, perfect for all occassions. And sometimes, I've even been known to be that weirdo that will make Apple Cider to drink while we watch the firework show during the fourth of July! I get cold really easily lol I don't know how else to explain it ;)

I hope you enjoy this recipe as well! It is so freaking easy and delicious!
