Well, I was surfing the blogosphere a few weeks ago, when I came across a blog post on "A Law Student's Journey" that stopped me in my tracks. WHAT IS THIS? COULD IT BE? WOO HOO, IT IS!! I had finally found a recipe for what else.........STARBUCKS CARAMEL APPLE SPICE! (insert the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing the Hallelujah Chorus!) Could you tell I was a happy camper? :> ) The first thing I did was post the link on Goose's facebook page. Before I knew it, she had gone out and bought the ingredients! That's my girl!!!
This morning I went over to help her get the food ready for a party she was supposed to be having today, but due to the snow, it was rescheduled till next Saturday. We had everything we needed to make a crock-pot of this delicious drink, and I'm sure had we made that much, we would have sat and drank the whole thing! lol We made enough for the two of us and enjoyed it along with our breakfast.
To make this DELICIOUS Caramel Apple Spice drink, you will need the following:
**12 oz Apple Cider
**3 pumps Cinnamon Dolce ~ you can buy a HUGE bottle of it at Starbucks for about $6.95 or so
(1 pump = about 2 tbsp, but you can add more or less)
**Caramel sauce ~ the kind you buy at the grocery store works great, and it's cheaper too!
Pour your apple cider into a microwave safe mug (if using your microwave) and add your Cinnamon Dolce. Heat your mug for about 2-3 minutes, depending on your microwave, or you can heat it on the stove top. After your drink is heated, top with whipped cream and caramel sauce. Make it look real pretty. Remember, presentation is EVERYTHING! lol
Well, there you have it.....a homemade Starbucks drink at a fraction of the cost, and you can enjoy it in the comfort of your very own home, cuddled up on the couch, in your jammies, by a rip-roaring fire! :> )
