For each cup of flavored apple cider you will need 2 JOLLY RANCHER Original Hard Candies.
Unwrap desired number of candies; place in microwave-safe glass measuring cup. Add just enough apple cider to cover candies. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1-1/2 minutes; stir. If necessary, microwave at HIGH an additional minute at a time, stirring after each heating, until candies are dissolved when stirred.*
Add additional apple cider to make desired cup amount. Serve chilled or heat and serve hot. Garnish as desired. Recipe makes two 8-ounce servings.
* Apple cider can also be made by adding candies to apple cider and allowing to sit 2 to 3 hours or until candy is dissolved.
