caramel apple cider

This is a recipe for caramel apple cider and I thought since it is now becoming fall and I love having apple cider in the fall, I thought this would be perfect.  It is from Family Fun and I hope you try it.

Ingredients

For the Cider

  • 1/4 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 3 cups of apple cider
  • 1/2 cup of water

For the Caramel Whipped Cream

  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar

Instructions

  1. First you bring the heavy cream and brown sugar for the cider to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat (you will need you parents help with the stove.)  Stir in the water and the cider and raise the heat to a medium high, heating just until the cider begins to steam, it will take about 4 minutes.
  2. Now for the whipped cream.  In a small chilled bowl, whip together the heavy cream and the brown sugar (the ingredients for the whipped cream.)  You whip the ingredients until soft peaks from it.
  3. Pour the cider in the glasses (serves 4) and top with the whipped cream. ENJOY!!!!

Hot Vanilla

Hot Vanilla

I was on one of my favorite websites called Family Fun and I thought to myself I love vanilla almost as much as I love chocolate so I thought why don’t I try a hot vanilla.  I hope you try it too.

Ingredients

    1/2 cup of whipping cream
    1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup
    Dash of cinnamon
    1 cup of milk (per hot vanilla)
    2 teaspoons of sugar (per hot vanilla)
    1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (per hot vanilla)

Instructions

  1. Start with the topping. In a medium bowl, whip 1/2 cup of whipping cream until it’s frothy. Add 1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup and a dash of cinnamon, then continue to whip the mixture until everything is well blended and peaks form. Makes enough to top about 6 drinks.
  2. For each hot vanilla, microwave 1 cup of milk and 2 teaspoons of sugar in a mug for 90 seconds. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Top with a dollop of chocolate cream, a drizzle of chocolate syrup, and a dash of cinnamon.
