Recipe by NorthwestGal
This is such an old recipe that has been in my family for so long that I cannot remember its history. So many of our family recipes come from my grandparents who, during World War II, had to cook and bake without certain ingredients that were often rationed during wartime. It seems to me that this might be one of those recipes. The mix produces a very rich and tasty batter that you can keep in your refrigerator and take out on those cold winter evenings when you want a creamy Hot Buttered Rum drink to take away the chill after spending a cold day playing or working in the snow. It's great mix to use for a holiday party or any large gathering during the winter when hot beverages are appreciated. And what's better than the classic Hot Buttered Rum !!

This was lovely NWG. It made a wonderfully smooth drink. It was hot, creamy, silky, subtley spiced and very warming. I loved the flavor. I used a dark rum and garnished with a cinnamon stick for stirring. Thanks so much for sharing.
- 1 quart French vanilla ice cream
- 1 lb light brown sugar
- 1 lb butter
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Directions See How It's Made
- Place the ice cream, sugar, and butter in a large saucepan and cook over on low heat, stirring frequently, until the butter is melted and mixture is creamy and well blended.
- Remove pan from heat; add cinnamon and nutmeg, and stir well. Let mixture cool.
- Place the cooled batter in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve (or it can be kept in the freezer for up to 1 month).
