In Honor of Christmas Eve: Extra Decadent Hot Buttered Rum

Extra Decadent Hot Buttered Rum


1 pound of powdered confectioner’s sugar
1 pound of brown sugar
1 pound of butter
a half gallon of vanilla ice cream
2 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
good quality spiced rum

Prep Day: Cream all ingredients except for rum together until very well blended. Store in the freezer until ready to use. This will last for quite some time.

Serve Day: When ready to serve, put some water on to boil. In each cup, put two tablespoons of the mixture and 1-2 shots of rum. (Personally, I prefer two, or at least one and a half. The mixture, in my opinion, is sweet enough to handle that much alcohol. Try it with one shot first though, and see what you think.) Pour boiling water over the top and give each cup a light stir. Drink while still fairly hot but not boiling, of course. If desired, you could top with whipped cream and some extra nutmeg. This is really a nice beverage to serve in cold weather and lets you pull off gracious entertaining on a moment’s notice. Enjoy!



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
