Sweet! Seriously. This recipe is soooo sweet (as in taste). Nonetheless, it tastes good!

This was fun! I doubled the recipe, and now I have way too much mix leftover. Both the ice cream and the butter need to be very soft to not get lumps. Most people found it way too sweet, and no one went back for seconds. I could only find mulled apple cider, and that is what I used. I thing it would have tasted nicer with sparkling cider as someone mentioned. I had butterscotch chips and butterscotch liquor for those who wanted to add something extra. This was a neat idea, but I don't think I'd make it again.
