Cook Time 10 minutes


  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 5 tbsp apple cider powder {you can buy this in bulk or in individual packets like you do for hot chocolate}
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • a handful of dried apples


  1. Place all ingredients into a pot and heat over medium-low heat until warm.  Simmer longer for a stronger cinnamon flavor.  

  2. Pour into a mug and serve with the dried apples and cinnamon sticks. For an added touch, you can slice up an apple and use a small cookie cutter to cut out the core. It's a cute way to top off your mug and the apple tastes really yummy after its been soaking!
