Hot Caramel Apple Cider Starbucks Knock off. Delish!!

I found this most wonderful recipe for Caramel Apple Dip at The Sweet Life and HAD to try it! She mentioned in the post that you could probably put it in some hot apple cider and make a version of Starbucks Caramel Apple Cider.  Yep! That was for me! I did try it! and it was good!
Here is the caramel dip recipe...

 1 bag of caramel bits or caramel squares {unwrapped} 11-14oz.

1 can sweetened condensed milk {fat free works just great}

Combine the caramel bits and milk in a microwave proof bowl or measuring cup and heat a little at a time in the microwave. I start with 1 minute and then 30 second intervals, stirring between each time. You want to just melt the caramel bits. It took me about 2 minutes total, but if you use the caramel squares it might take a little longer.

When it’s cool, store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

I did took the next step she suggested and put about 3 heaping spoonfuls into a cup of steaming hot apple cider and I was in Heaven!! Yum-O! Try it!
*Note...Go easy on the heaping spoons until you find a good combo for you.  For some less is more.
(It would make the most wonderful Christmas gift too!)
