Hot Buttered Rum Three Ways

My husband would fix these when the weather turned colder.  Hot and sweet with a little liquor (optional).

This was one of my first posts since I started my blog in late 2011.  Today (2-3-14) I am adding two recipes below that I found; one has ice cream in it and the other is made in a slow cooker.

Hot Buttered Rum

  • 1 (16 oz.) pkg. brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • rum
  • cinnamon sticks for stirring

Mix sugar, butter and spices.  Store this in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.  This mixture also freezes well.

To serve, place 1 heaping tbsp. butter mixture, a little rum and 1 cinnamon stick in a mug.  Fill with boiling water and stir well.  You could add a dollop of whipping cream with a sprinkling of nutmeg.
