This Caramel Apple Cider makes for a great Warm Wishes Gift Basket. It’s perfect for family, friends and neighbors.
During these cooler months there is just something about curling up on the couch after a long day with a warm drink in hand. I’m not much of a coffee drinker, despite my husbands love for it, but I do love my hot chocolates, hot teas and now this caramel apple cider drink mix from Tastefully Simple. It’s bursting with the flavor of cinnamon, apples, and sweet caramel. Top it with some whipped cream and some warm creamy caramel sauce and it instantly feels like a dessert. This beverage goes perfectly with the other entertaining ideas Tastefully Simple has for the holidays.
One of my favorite ways to wrap gifts for the Christmas season is in a gift basket. I think a gift basket centered around warm wishes is such a fun way to share some of your favorites to a loved one that could use a little relaxing moment. In my basket I added a pretty flannel fabric, a mug, small christmas tree, and the ingredients to make Tastefully Simples Caramel Apple Hot Toddy, minus the alcohol. We just used water but you could also swap the alcohol for apple juice! I also added their delicious creamy caramel sauce which really adds a pop of fancy to this beverage. It’s a quick beverage for entertaining around the holidays and can even be prepared in the slow cooker so you can keep coming back for more 🙂
I created a pretty winter gift tag that you can use for your gift basket. Just right click the below image and “save as” to your computer. Upload it into your computer program, such as Word, and resize as necessary.
My kids are just now starting to enjoy hot chocolate and I think this would be another great drink for them to try! I just bet they would love to throw some fluffy marshmallows in it too! 🙂
