Red hot apple cider is the perfect cold weather drink. The combination of red hots and apple cider creates a delicious and slightly spicy warm beverage.
If you’ve never had Red Hot Apple Cider, you are missing out. I don’t know what it is about the combination of apple cider and red hot candies, but it is delicious!
I know you could easily use the bottled cider. For this recipe, however, I prefer using the powdered packet cider.
Let me tell you, I am a self confessed apple cider snob. I usually will only drink a certain type and it isn’t powdered.
For some reason, though, the red hot candies taste better when combined with the powdered cider. Try it for yourself. Let me know what you think about it.
Kroger has amazing store brand powdered spiced cider (it comes in a box like hot chocolate). The best part: you can buy it all year long. You don’t have to wait for the holidays to enjoy this delicious apple beverage.
All you need for this recipe is a packet of cider, hot water and about a tsp. of red hot candies. This is a really fun recipe that your kids will enjoy. They will think it is a lot of fun to put candy into a drink. It is also exciting to watch the candy melt because it will turn the cider a little bit red.
