I’m back with another Starbucks copycat recipe! When I was looking at recipes to make for #AppleWeek, I knew that I had to do the classic caramel apple spice.  This was a drink was one of my favorites during the days before I enjoyed drinking coffee so it’s great for kids and non-coffee drinkers!

Make sure to check out my other Apple Week recipes from this year – Apple Cheesecake Bars and Apple Gouda Crostini.

For a fun spin, try making this recipe with bourbon salted caramel sauce!

Caramel Apple Spice

To make this recipe, I used my homemade caramel sauce, cinnamon dolce syrup, and apple cider recipes.  You are completely welcome to use store bought ingredients instead but that’s up to you.  The one thing that you will probably have to make from scratch is the cinnamon dolce syrup that the recipe calls for but I included a recipe for that.  You may find it in stores but it is more difficult to find than caramel sauce.

Something I love about this recipe is how it tastes like fall in a cup.  It’s just really elevated apple cider but it feels like a special treat that is great to serve to friends and family for Thanksgiving or just when they come to visit during the season.

I need some clarification please. I want to make the syrup for the apple spice. The recipe above only says 2 TBS of sugar and the link to the same recipe says 3/4 cups. Can you please tell me which one is right for the cinnamon dolce syrup?? Thank you!!

Loved the recipe; used the alternative dolce syrup ( it doesn't mention adding the cinnamon though, you might want to do this if revising) I added after; as well I took a chance and tried the non-dairy Silk Almond Creamer; which turned out to be SWEET, not BITTER, luckily ... thank you thank you thank you. (Friend of mine who doesn't drink coffee but likes the Starbucks Carmel Spiced Apple Cider, started me on this!). We'll have this in our little pod at Christmas I'm sure!
