31 Days of Halloween: Day 14 - Drink Apple Cider.

I'm a coffee nut. Actually, I'm a coffee creamer nut. I love, love, love coffee and I have become the person that stumbles into the kitchen and watches the Keurig until it fills my cup full.

However, I am not a coffee-after-4-pm person. Nope. I need decaf or I need none after 4pm. So I've started drinking apple cider every once in a while for a treat at night. And it is delicious! {I just buy the Green Mountain Hot Apple Cider Naturals kcups.}

BUT...tonight I was Pinterest-ing {which has become a MAJOR habit of mine lately...I hadn't looked in months and then BAM!} and I stumbled upon a Starbucks copycat recipe. There were several different versions, but apparently I need to be stopping by Starbucks tomorrow to pick up their Cinnamon Dolce Syrup and Caramel Sauce. Eddie just suggested I ask for all kinds of their syrups and sauces for my birthday. Goodness knows this would be a great investment if I could make their drinks in my own home! HA!

* Apple Cider kcup, brewed (or just whatever apple cider you normally drink)
* 2 pumps Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce syrup
* Whipped Cream
* Caramel Sauce

Add a little whipped cream to the bottom of your mug. Brew apple cider. Add two pumps of Cinnamon Dolce syrup, stir. Top with more whipped cream and caramel sauce.

Obviously this is NOT a drink to be had every day, but goodness what a yummy treat!
