Warm Spiced Apple Cider

This is a wonderful recipe that I found 2 years ago on Kraft and WOW we have used it every winter since! My children will ask for me to make fresh apple cider and this is what they are referring to! I love to make something fresh and homemade for my babies! I know the ingredients are not " home made" but they still see me assemble it and that's what they think! It taste so very good! My mom used to make something very similar but lost the recipe and for years I have searched for something to come close and this is it! This is wonderful on our cold snowy days because believe it or not the kids do get tired of Hot Cocoa!

I hope that you enjoy this wonderful Hot Drink Recipe!
