Crock Pot Caramel Apple Cider

Are you looking for a delicious cider to warm up your family and friends after a little Trick or Treating ? Well, look no further!  I found this recipe on a Taste of Home site and made a few very minor adjustments. I recently served this decadent caramel apple cider as part of a cider and coffee bar.  It was a huge hit! The best part is you can mix it up and let it warm in the crock pot. I love crock pots!
In honor of the world series, I would like to present...

The starting lineup:
8 cups of apple cider...not apple juice
1 cup of caramel syrup (Torani brand or DaVinci found in the coffee aisle)
1/4 cup of lemon juice
2 teaspoons of pure vanilla
3 cinnamon sticks
1 tablespoon of whole allspice
Cheesecloth
Toppings:  Whipped cream and Hershey's caramel syrup (type used for ice cream)

Directions:
1.  In a 3 quart slow cooker, combine the apple cider, DaVinici or Torani caramel syrup and lemon juice.    Cut a square of cheesecloth large enough to hold the cinnamon sticks and cloves.  Place sticks and cloves in the middle of the square and bring up corners.  Tie with a string to form a spice bag.  Place the bag in the cider mixture.  
2.  Cover and heat thoroughly for 2-3 hours.  Discard spice bag.  Stir in 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla.  
3.  Ladle into mugs and top with whipped cream and a drizzle of Hershey's caramel syrup.

I hope you enjoy this delicious treat as much as we do!
