A few weeks ago I made salted caramel for the first time. I love caramel, but always avoided making it because I didn’t have a candy thermometer. Then I bought one and lost that excuse. So it was time to face the truth—making caramel scared me. But I don’t like to give into my fears, so after lots of whining and moaning, I made some. And boy is it good.
My new favorite way to enjoy my yummy gooey caramel sauce is mixed with apple cider. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I recommend adding this to your list of beverage options. You can make the caramel in advance (even a couple of weeks earlier), although you do run the risk of eating all of it prior to the big day. 😀
This is a decadent, smooth beverage that both kids and adults will enjoy sipping throughout the day. Be sure to use a good-quality apple cider as some don’t taste much different than apple juice. It’s simple addition to your Thanksgiving, but one that packs a big punch.
