Well I have tried alot of Tom and Jerry's in my life and this is clearly by far the BEST!! Made exactly as stated and wouldn't change a thing. I put in a half shot of rum and a half shot of either apricot or peach brandy and it is awesome!! Thanks for the Best T & J recipe!!
this was wonderful!! a lot cheaper to make than paying $8.oo plus for the same thing! yummier too! the boyfriend and i both thoroughly enjoyed this!! thanks for posting DDW!
I grew up with Tom and Jerry's every Christmas Eve. The water was boiling all day as friends dropped by for the traditional Tom and Jerry. Bill Saal Tom and Jerry batter stopped being sold in the stores and ever since we have been trying to recreate it. This is by far the best and most like the original. Thanks!
Excellent recipe!! Reminds me of Christmases at home up north!
Yummy! T&J batter is no longer available here, so I decided to make this, and will now never purchase batter again! Delicious, easy and economical, with none of the gritty texture you sometimes get with store-bought. This recipe is a keeper!
Perfect! I did reduce the powdered sugar by half since we like things a little less sweet. I loved the addition of the marshmallow!
I couldn't find marshmallow cream, so I used fluff. This is a fantastic recipe once you find "your" perfect balance of batter, water, and booze. DH says these taste like the ones he had where he's from every year at the holidays. Thanks so much!
WOW... this was the hit of our party. Lots of Tom and Jerry experts (or so they all claimed) and all of them said this was the best they'd ever had. I got all the credit at the party but wanted to pass on the good word! Thanks!
This recipe turned out great! My family is from the midwest where this is extremely popular, so now that I'm not there anymore this was great to introduce to some of my Southern friends. They absolutely loved it! I made it exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for a fabulous recipe that reminded me of family holidays!
This was really outstanding and simple to make! There was a BIG controversey however at my party as guests were concerned about consuming anything with raw eggs. My understanding is the liquor and boiling water actually makes this drink quiye safe. My grandparents/parents and aunts and uncles drank them every Christmas with no ill effects! These Tom and Jerry`s from this recipe were WONDERFUL!!!
