Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Cider
I enjoyed a cup of this slow cooker caramel apple cider on Halloween along with a little slow cooker chocolate brownie.
It was the perfect sweet treat for Halloween. Or any fall day, really.
I’ve never had the caramel apple spice cider at Starbucks, but it sounds pretty darned good…
