Tasty Tuesday ~ Sweet & Simple Cider

My friend Carol served this the other night at a Christmas party, and it was colorful, sweet, and simple to make. It has a beautiful red color that's perfect for the holidays. SO easy!

Sweet & Simple Cider

2 boxes of instant spiced cider packets (10 pkg each) ~ She used Kroger brand

1 small bag (6 oz) of imperial cinnamons (Not sure what that is? Think "red hots" or click here.)

Mix the cider packets in a large stockpot and add the cinnamons, heating until they are all melted and combined in the cider. Serve with a ladle.

This is one of the great holiday season recipes being shared at Tempt My Tummy Tuesday & Tasty Tuesday. I find great recipes at both recipe carnivals.

I was craving (prego and all) cider a few weeks ago, and so I bought the packets at the store, and it's just not really good enough! Adding red hots to it, would make it so great! YUM
