- Melt butter and honey together. Next add milk, sugar, vanilla,and butterscotch schnapps. Microwave or heat on stovetop until it reaches the desired temperature. Mix in hot chocolate powder and cinnamon. Enjoy!
My family really enjoyed this recipe. I have never had butter beer before so I didn't really know what to expect but I will probably be making this again with a few tweaks to fit our families taste. I did make a few changes the recipe I read the previous reviews and decided to use a cinnamon stick instead of the powdered cinnamon to prevent the powder floating at the top. It worked out quite nicely. The cinnamon stick infused into the drink a mild cinnamon flavor with no weird floaties. I also added a tad more butter scotch topping (about 1 tsp more). I think this is where I will make an additional change in the future. Although the finished drink was very delicious my family wanted it to have a stronger butterscotch flavor. I am not sure if I will add more butterscotch topping or try something else to intensify the flavor without adding too much sweetness. Overall a great recipe to start with and one that you can easily tweak to your own taste. Oh! One more thing. I also garnished it with a whipped cream that was slightly sweetened with a little melted marshmallow cream. Just a little as the drink is already sweet I didn't sweeten the whipped cream much at all. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
Yummy. I found it a little sweet with an ounce of butterscotch syrup (I made it for my kids on a cold day), so I will put a bit less next time, but I would definately make it again. I did also lessen the amount of cinnamon after reading one of the other reviews, so I don't know how it would taste with the full tsp of cinnamon.
We also had the stuff that kept floating to the top, which was cinnamon! I love cinnamon, but 1 tsp was waaaaaaaaaaay too much. I can't believe no one else thought so. We plan to make this again using just a pinch. Good flavor overall, since as the cinnamon floated to the top, we spooned it out.
