Friday Foods – Caramel Apple Chai
Caramel Apple Chai
Makes 2 servings
1/2 cup nonfat powdered milk
2 tablespoons loose chai tea
4 dried apple slices, chopped
3 bite-size, individually wrapped caramels
Sweetener, such as sugar or honey, to taste
Put the powdered milk in a zip-top freezer bag. Measure the loose chai tea and dried apple slices into a cheesecloth bag or tea filter, and then place them in a zip-top freezer bag with 3 caramels. Put this bag inside the bag with the powdered milk.
Unwrap the caramels and put them in a pot with 2 1/2 cups water, the tea bag, and the powdered milk. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often so that the milk does not stick. Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes or until the tea is the strength you desire and the caramels have melted. Remove the cheesecloth bag and divide the tea between 2 camp cups. Sweeten to taste.
