I had some of the kindergarten moms over to our house this morning to plan the class Halloween party. I decided to make some hot apple cider and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins to set out. I had been wanting to make and freeze some muffins anyway, and the apple cider can be made in about 2 minutes.
Instead of mixing together multiple spices and cloves and everything else, my mom told me to just mix apple cider, cranberry juice, and a few cinnamon sticks, and throw in the crockpot. It was so easy and so good!
I only used about half of the apple cider and a quarter of the cranberry juice. You want to have at least two parts apple cider to one part cranberry juice. I added two cinnamon sticks for more flavor. This is such an easy way to have a hot drink for guests and it makes your house smell so good!
I blogged about these pumpkin chocolate chip muffins last year. A definite must-make item for fall. This recipe makes a lot, and they are easy to freeze, so go get to baking!
We are trying to soak up these fall temps and every last bit of daylight we can get around here! xo
