"A great warm fall drink. Great replacement for a winter's hot cocoa! My children love it. I came up with it when I wanted something warm and sweet but didn't want the caffeine. Like hot apple pie in a mug! Top with whipped cream."
Whisk apple juice, caramel syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and whisk briskly until mixture is hot but not boiling, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla; cook and stir for 1 more minute. Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream.
