If you are looking for a way to literally spice up your apple cider, this is the perfect recipe! I found this recipe in my Taste of Home Holiday cookbook and am so glad I finally tried it! Add some spices to vanilla ice cream and then add it to your apple cider and your drink will taste like apple pie in a mug….soooo yummy!
Hot Apple Pie Sipper
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1 pint vanilla ice cream (2 cups), softened
4 cups hot apple cider
In a large bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves until light and fluffy. Beat in ice cream. Cover and freeze until firm. For each serving, place 1/3 cup ice cream mixture in a mug and add 2/3 cup of hot cider. Enjoy!
(I forgot to put the brown sugar in the picture, but don’t forget to include it!)
