I-can-(almost)-do-it-myself apple cider
We were shocked at how much we liked this easy recipe that I first saw on The Family Kitchen. With just 2 (not very classy) ingredients, we didn’t expect much other than a fun fall treat for the kids on a cool early fall night. But it was GOOD!
My 6 year old loved doing it all himself – besides putting the pot on the stove and turning on the heat.
How to make a tasty, simple apple cider?
Put 1 can of frozen apple juice in a pot, with the required amount of water. Add in 1/4 cup* of red hot candies. Simmer on a low heat until the juice is steaming and the candies have dissolved.

*The original recipe called for 1 movie-sized box of Red Hots, or 1/3 cup of candies (less than a full box). We thought 1/3 cup of candies left a bit too much of a cinnamon after taste, especially for the kids, but 1/4 cup was just perfect. Just throw in however many candies your taste buds can handle. 🙂
