{taste this} hot caramel apple cider floats

Cold weather just begs for scarves, gloves, rosy cheeks, extra lip gloss and warm, yummy drinks!  Do you agree?!  Then you are in luck, because I have got an AMAZING warm drink to keep you cozy during the cold winter months …

If you like caramel apples, this warm drink is perfect for you!!

It starts with a mug of hot apple cider … you can purchase it and warm it up, or make your own!  Just add mulling spices – like these from French Press – to apple juice and let it simmer.  Either way, fill a mug about 2/3 full of hot apple cider.  Add a scoop of dulce de leche ice cream (or any vanilla/caramel flavor), drizzle with warm caramel topping and ENJOY!

These were warm and spicy, rich and creamy from the melting ice cream with just a touch of decadence thanks to the caramel.  Perfect for a night around the fire place or to warm up from caroling (does anyone do that anymore?!)!  Okay, so after sledding or ice skating or snowman building … basically any of the fun outdoor things that we don’t do in Florida, ha ha!!  

A little more holiday inspiration …
