Hot Buttered Apple Cider

This hot buttered apple cider is full of flavor and the perfect drink for the holidays!

This hot cider is the perfect thing to warm you up during the cold months. A nice change from a cup of hot cocoa :). It has just the right amount of sugar and spice! And the butter takes it over the top. 

It tastes great plain but you can always add some whipped cream & salted caramel topping too. I tried it both ways.

Make this mix and have it next to the hot cocoa at your next party, everyone will love it! 

Hot Buttered Apple Cider Mix {Slow Cooker}

  • 1 pound brown sugar ( 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 gallon apple juice or cider
  1. Beat all ingredients with an electric hand mixer. Place in an airtight container in the refrigerator until needed (Will keep for 6 weeks).
  2. To make the cider, place a heaping tablespoon of the mix in a cup and fill with hot apple cider or juice (I used juice).
  3. To make the whole batch in a slow cooker, add mix to 1 gallon of apple juice or cider. Heat all ingredients in slow cooker and serve warm.

Hot Chocolate Mix

This hot chocolate mix is easy to make, super creamy & a great gift too! 

This is another one of our"Nana's Specials". I think it's been around for a long time but again, I hadn't ever tried it until my mother-in-law introduced it to me. I love having a batch of this mixed up and ready for those cold winter mornings. Even in Arizona we like to drink hot chocolate ;). Just add some of the mix to a cup of hot water and you have a really creamy cup of cocoa. 

I add about 1/2 cup mix to 1 cup of water. Or you could do 1/3 cup mix to 3/4 cup water. Just add it to taste. I like mine really rich and creamy. Are we surprised?! haha. The richer the better in my opinion.
This would also be a great gift. Just package it up in a jar or bag, write the directions and gift it to neighbors, family or friends! Easy, Christmas gift! I just sent a bag to my brother-in-law out on his mission. He is in New York and I figured he could use a little warming up :).

Hurry up and make a batch of this to help keep you warm this winter!

Crunch Brownies

Pin It
A brownie topped with marshmallows and a crunchy chocolate, peanut butter & butterscotch layer!

A friend of mine had these brownies at a party and was telling me about them. So of course I had to try them out! You could make a homemade brownie on the bottom, but I took the easy way and used a mix. Plus you are adding 2 more layers so it cuts down on the work for you and I think it tastes just as good. I tried the version with marshmallow creme instead of the miniature marshmallows but I prefer the actual marshmallows. The top is my favorite! The butterscotch/chocolate/peanut butter crunch is what makes these brownies to die for!

These brownies need to be chilled in the fridge. The chocolate needs to set up before serving/cutting but I promise the wait is worth it.

Hurry and make these brownies! And let me know what you think!
