So disappointing. I followed the instructions to the letter, but it just doesn't taste that great. It's too sweet and not buttery enough for my liking. If I were to make this again, I'd cut the confectioner's sugar completely. Overall, it's just not that good for the calories you're consuming while drinking it.Read More
Wonderful! Used Captain Morgan's spiced rum, topped with French Vanilla Cool Whip and sprinkled nutmeg on top. An addicting dessert in a mug.
Oh so yummy. I cut the recipe in half thinking it seemed like alot. Wrong move. Make the whole recipe. Add double batter, rum and spices. Added whipped cream, sprinked w/ cinnamon. Used Captain Morgans spiced rum. My friends loved it!!!
My mom uses this same recipe. When we were young we got to have it in coffee as a treat. She gave me a tub of it and my roommate ate it all with a spoon like ice cream! Good stuff!
Made this batter Christmas Eve and just finished the batter tonight, end of March ! An excellent recipe but you may want to cut it in half. I gave batter away to two different friends and still had tons left over. It is so darn good, we even warmed it in the microwave and poured it over vanilla ice cream as a sauce, yummy !
This was the first time I have ever had anything like this, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was good. Not the kind of drink I drink all night, its very rich, but what a treat!
Simply delicious! I put 2 tbsp of batter as others have suggested with 1-2 oz spiced rum topped with cool whip. It was a hit on Christmas day and will definetly make it again :)
Sooooo delicious. The hit of Christmas Eve. Thanks Sheri
Can't wait to try this!!!!
This is an awsome recipe! I like it alot better than the store bought kind. Glad I stumbled across it.
I tried this recipe for a get-together after a day of skiing, and those 100 servings were barely enough for 20 people! This recipe makes the sweetest, warmest, creamiest drink... and with the smoothest, most beautiful cappuccino color - absolutely perfect to warm you up after a day in the snow. Toss in a cinnamon stick and top with a dollop of whipped cream and dash of cinnamon if you really want to look like a goddess.
Excellent recipe! I brought this to our extended family's Christmas Eve get together. My relatives were skeptical at first--they'd never even heard of hot buttered rum--not like this stuff, anyway! It was a very gloopy recipe, but man, was it worth it! One person decided to try it, and soon enough, I was busy making cup after cup of this stuff! A1 stuff. I chose this particular recipe out of the other buttered rum recipes because this included spices. The spices were wonderful, gave it an intoxicating aroma, and worked really well with the quality dark Jamaican rum I chose to use. All the rum and sugar gave me a whopper of a headache, but I'm not complaining! Well worth it!
This is really, REALLY good! I had wanted to give as gifts and got my Ziploc baggies all ready with instructions and everything, then realized that this batter doesn't freeze like ice cream, it's more like a thick, sticky panckake batter (presumably hence the name "Hot Buttered Rum BATTER)...I ended up keeping it for myself - poor me! Thanks for sharing Shari - will make another batch for an upcoming after Christmas party!!!

All I had was 3/4 a pound of butter (3 sticks) and it was still excellent. What I will do next time is soften the butter then cream in the brown sugar Then add the powdered sugar and ice cream, and spices. I also gave to my kids by heating up apple cider. They loved it. But I thought it was sweet and rich, so next drink I think I may mix some cider with hot water, then add the batter. YUMMY!!! Also good added to a cup of coffee.
Holy Cow - this stuff is awesome! I made this the day before Thanksgiving - drank it that night, and the next 2 days. My family loved it. Also tried it in coffee - very good. I didn't change a thing. We are having a Christmas party in a couple weeks - and we are making a doouble batch!
This was THE best hot buttered rum batter ever! I made it for an outdoor fall tailgate party on a cold Sunday. I scaled the recipe down to 50 servings, thinking I could freeze the rest for another day. Wishful thinking... it was gone before we knew it. There were a few creative people who added a scoop of vanilla ice cream before drinking and loved it. Guess I have to make more for the next party!
Oh my! This is the best hot buttered rum I have ever tasted! I just made half the recipe tonight to try, hoping it would be good to serve at Thanksgiving but I will have to make another batch before then...it's almost gone!
This is the BEST hot buttered rum ever! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
OH MY GOD, this is delicious!!! I like using more of the batter per cup though. I used equal amounts of rum and batter, then filled the cup with the boiling water. YUMMY!
WOW...Amazing! This drink is so rich and such a treat! We've been trying it out mixed with other types of liquor...it is wonderful with coconut rum, amaretto, frangelico, or with no booze at all in coffee or cider. I think this batter is partially responsible for our winter weight gain! So Yummy!
A wonderful recipe for the holidays. I would recommend it to anyone planning to entertain. It is soooo good and easy to make. The batter keeps well in the freezer. I would suggest storing in several small containers (keeps it fresh).
Delicious! I put more then a tablespoon in each mug, but otherwise followed the recipe. Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg and throw in a peppermint or cinnamon stick to stir. Thank You!
Absolutely fantastic! Even without the rum this is a very satisfying warm beverage. I served it at a Harvest Party and it received rave reviews. I added more than one spoonful of batter per cup. A lot of my guests said it tasted like gingerbread.
This was my first taste of hot buttered rum and I have to say it wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be much sweeter. It was very good though and my guests drank it up even my husband who is usually a beer man. I will probably make it again.
Very Good, makes a lot! When I mix it up, I like my drink to be thick, so I use 3 TBS of batter. Also, try it w/Frangelico instead of rum!
My niece and nephews love this drink without the rum too! I doubled the spices and added some fresh ground ginger (not to mention whole nutmeg, ground fresh).
I used this for my holiday Party. I doubled to allow for 200 servings. It was a hit. I had over 30 requests for the recipe but it was so easy I hated to give away my secret!
I agree, this is the best Hot Butter Rum recipe I've seen!!
Oh boy! This is delicious! I made this and gave it as Christmas gifts to some close friends, it was the hit of the season!
I had this recipe years ago and lost it. It tastes wonderful!! I'm so glad to have this recipe again. Rose
Oh my, this is amazing. I'd never had a hot buttered rum before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The batter is incredible (yes, very rich, but just read the ingredients!) and makes an excellent addition to a vanilla milkshake. :) I had trouble mixing the sugars into the butter, but when I added the ice cream, everything blended decently. There are still a few little lumps of sugar in the batter but they dissolve in the hot water. An excellent recipe, thanks Sheri!
Love this! I actually add 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract as well and use 2 T. of batter to a cup. It keeps very well in the freezer and is so much better than store bought.
I have been really sick with a horrible cold that I can't seem to shake. While purusing allrecipes the other night I really wanted to find a hot drink to warm my insides and help me sleep. I love hot buttered rum and when I saw this recipe it sounded really yummy. My husband made it for me last night and I will tell you it made me sleep like a baby! I felt so warmed up and helped loosen my sinuses enough that I could get some decent sleep. Not saying it's a cure all for what ails you, but it sure can't hurt! Plus it tastes sooooo good! I plan on making more of these on xmas! thanks
OMG, this is yummy! Double the nutmeg and cinnamon. Add cider instead of water. Perfect!
SOOOOO good and very addicting. We used it with Captain Morgans. I put in about 2 tbs of the batter, 1 1/2 oz of liquor and then a little hot water. Everyone loves it. And there is PLENTY of batter to last a while in the freezer.
Delicious. This is really good as my creamer in my coffee in the morning, without the buttered rum :) This will now be my recipe. I also used Spiced Rum like some other reviewers. Just a splash for me. Used French Vanilla Breyer's.
I used a lot of the batter in my drinks because we like it sweet and creamy! Topped with whipped cream and ground cinnamon and nutmeg---this made it taste just like or even better than those seasonal drinks from Carribou Coffee or Starbucks! This is the best (with or without the rum in it)!!!!!!!
Absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I love it!
This hot buttered rum batter is rich and creamy - definitely not for calorie counters. As good or better than what you can buy in the store.
I never had a hot buttered rum drink before this one, and now I am hooked. It was easy to make and delicious to drink. I did the 2 scoops and it was a bit sweet, so the next one might be just one scoop ( or maybe just more rum was needed!) Perfect for the holidays! Thanks Sheri
Really yummy. Warms you right down to your toes. I plan on making a batch for Christmas presents.
I halved the recipe and am now wondering why in the world I didn't make the whole thing!?!? This stuff is DELICIOUS. We don't drink, so as a non-alcoholic alternative, I used apple cider. 8 oz apple cider to 2 Tablespoons batter. If anyone has ever had the Sbux Spiced Apple Cider/Caramel apple spice (what ever its called) - this is almost a dead ringer for it. Every fall and winter I always order these at Sbux - it's my absolute favorite and I'm so so so happy I can now make these at home when ever I please. Thank you for this wonderful recipe :)
Though that this mix was delicious. My family thought so too. Made it on Christmas day after sledding!
Like everyone, i agree the flavor of this is great--you could eat it with a spoon or drink it with a straw. But this is butter-based and really doesn't mix well with hot water. I have tried it in coffee but I think i will try it with hot milk and/or simply use it as an ice cream topping.
An excellent base for hot buttered rum! Keeps very well in the freezer (don't try to freeze it in "cubes" or anything else, it's far too sugary to freeze). I have been known to add ground cloves, ground allspice, or any manner of other delicious spices to this recipe. Also, if you're not using salted butter, do add a pinch.
I've been making this batter for two Fall/Winters now and I LOVE it! I use about 2 Tbsp. of batter in a mug, because I can't really taste it with just one tablespoon. But other than that, the batter is perfect as is.
What a hit!! Everyone enjoyed this and it was so easy to make. I made a pot of tea and served it that way with spiced rum.
If you love creamy, warm, holiday goodness, this is your drink.
A Christmas party hit! I doubled the spice requirements and added a pinch of clove. Adults loved it and the kids loved the virgin version of it (hot cider used instead of water and rum).
We thought this was just wonderful! Perfect for a cold night. However, we ended up using double the amount listed in each mugful and added extra cinnamon and nutmeg. Next time I will add extra spices to the batter, and will continue to add extra batter per cup. Rich and wonderful!
This is a great recipe! I started making this in 1965 when I found it in a newspaper in Ohio. Kept it for years but then forgot about it. It makes wonderful Christmas gifts. I love it with apple cider or even in my coffee. Warms your from the inside out.
This recipe is AMAZING!! You can change it up simply by using a different type of vanilla ice cream (french, vanilla bean etc...) or adding a bit of pure vanilla to give it a richer flavor. The recipe is very versatile. Use it in coffee, with hot water or in cider for starters. I've used rum (spiced IS best) Baileys Irish Cream, coffee and whiskey and yes, even plain ;) This recipe is simply.....NUUUUMMMMY! I made a triple batch and am giving it away in jars for Christmas. THANK YOU SHERIMA1!!!!
This is the best and easiest hot buttered rum batter I've found. Toss out those canned mixes! It is a huge amount, though, so I halved it. Like others, when serving this I also use spiced rum and add a touch of whipped cream to the top. For those folks who complained it's too much work to make or for guests to put together, are you kidding me?! If that's the case you'd better stick to things that can be drunk right out of the bottle.
Excellent!! Drinking one right now. Our first Christmas toast, Christmas 2010.
The best Hot Buttered Rum Batter I've ever made or tasted!!
I'm in love with this recipe! I thought that making my own buttered rum batter was a lot of work but my hubby finally convinced me to try it. This recipe is so easy and tastes way better than the grocery store kind which I used to swear by. I had no problems with the sugar clumping like other reviewers said. I mixed the batter with Captain Morgan's spiced Rum and it taste so much better than using regular rum. I don't think I can keep this to myself and plan on making it as holiday gifts for family and friends.
Hmmmm, not quite what I had in mind. I found the mixture to be too sweet and then when added to the water made this unappetizing tasting syrup.
This is my first time making Hot Buttered Rum...I had it in November at a party and searched for a recipe. This was such a hit! I doubled the recipe (after reading reviews of giving as a gift) I gave small containers to 4 friends, and had enough to bring to two family Christmases and New Years Eve party. Everyone LOVED it! Each person that had a cup asked for the recipe. I hate to share it...I feel special having such a fun treat for everyone. I used Spiced Rum for each drink, and the kids loved it with cider. I wasn't as big of a fan with the cider. I used Vanilla bean ice cream. I will make every year! Thank you for sharing!
This turned out delicious. The only thing I did differently was to use whipping cream instead of the ice cream because I didn't want all the strange ingredients, guar gum, etc. that come with store bought ice cream. The drink was very creamy, sweet and spicy.
This batter is fantastic! I made it the other day and then had friends over for hot buttered rums and cheesecake. To say it was a hit is an understatement, it was a smash hit! It’s very easy to put together and the fact that it keep in the freezer means you can enjoy them all winter long. That is if the batter would last that long, ha! Thanks so much for sharing, I can’t wait to get home and have one!
Wasn't sure what to expect of this but it was good, especially with 2 tablespoons of the mix per cup. I've noticed that on some of the Buttered Rum reviews people mentioned the "butter" floating on top. Because butter is dairy based it shouldn't do this, make sure you don't replace it with margarine- oil based. Also, I doubled the recipe and put it in a plastic gallon ice cream container, it fit perfectly. Make sure you don't put it in a chest type deep freeze while it hardens though. My kids tipped it and dumped half in the full freezer as the seal didn't hold and I didn't notice until 6 hours later, what a mess.
This is not a pretty drink, but it sure is good! I cut the recipe in half and used a very high quality, natural ice cream. When I added the water I found I had to increase the amounts of batter and rum to get a rich tasting drink. I could eat this right out of the freezer with a spoon!
Very creamy and buttery. I think that one tablespoon isn't enough for a cup, so I add a little more. Good with or without the rum.
Excellent... much better than my old recipe. So good on a cold winter's night, especially around the holidays!
I made this batter last weekend for an outdoor party and it was awesome! Only suggestion is - note this recipe is for 100 servings. It makes alot!
This is even great with just plain hot water and a dash of nutmeg!
Absolutely wonderful. I was afraid it would create a watery drink, but not at all - the result is creamy perfection. I made two batches to give out as presents, and it was easy and fun. A keeper!
This was fabulous! It made a ton, I was able to give it out to my guests as well as keep some for myself! Everyone loved it! I did put 2 tbsp of mixture to 1 oz of rum....PERFECT!!!! Thanks!
OMG! This is amazing! I just had to try it so I made a glass before I tossed it in the freezer and its soooo good. I made it exactly the way the directions say wouldn’t change a thing. I added a spiced rum to it (don’t even care that’s its 11:30am) but I can’t wait to serve it over a bon fire this weekend.
I have been leary of buttered rum recipes because I have had weak tasting buttered rum before, and there is nothing worse!! This recipe is DELISH with just the hot water and rum! I am going to try it with hot apple cider for Christmas. I made a full batch, and it will last a while. Excited to have it again. Thanks for sharing.
This batter was very tasty "straight up", but thin and watery as a mixer. I even tried using only 4oz of water. Maybe it would be good with hot cider as others have suggested.
I made this last night to test it before giving it as a gift for Christmas. It was REALLY good. I followed the recipe exactly, but cut it in half. After being in the freezer overnight it's still not completely frozen..
I made this recipe exactly as written...it's a definite 5 stars! The batter will never freeze completely solid--don't be alarmed when it keeps a thick gelato texture after hours or days in the freezer. Also, the sprinkled nutmeg at the end makes all the difference. I will be remaking this batter/hot drink every holiday season.
I remember drinking this (sans rum) when I was a child, it was a Christmas favorite of my grandma. One taste and it was 1979 again, snowing outside, and Grandma was still with us. Isn't that what traditions do? Keep us in touch with our loved ones through those shared memories. Thanks for sharing this recipe. =)
Yummy! I followed the direction but used another recipes mixing directions. I used 1 -2 oz dark rum, 2 heaping Tbls of batter, and 6 oz of boiling water. This makes the drink much creamier and sweeter. I can't wait to serve this at my holiday party!
my sister gave me some of this for Christmas what a warm fuzzy feeling tastes so good.
There are no words great enough to describe how good this is. I cut this in half, as it's only my husband and I that will consume it. I also use two tablespoons of the rum batter and add a shot of spiced rum. It's liquid heaven.
Nothing warms the insides like a nice cup of hot buttered rum! And this recipe works great. Like other readers suggested, I creamed the butter with the sugar instead of melting it. I also cut the recipe in half. Very good!
We found this far too sweet & watery. I can see its potential though & might try it again, but perhaps in coffee to make the flavour a little richer & hopefully cut some of the sweetness.
yummy yummy yum!!!
I had never tasted hot buttered rum before and now I wish I hadn't....because it is so awesome! This is a great recipe and makes a ton. I will put a bit more spice in it next time and I may use a couple of packets of spiced cider mix in it (recommended by a British friend) but overall it was wonderful.
I am the most popular woman at work after giving individual batches of the batter as Christmas gifts. Everyone enjoyed the toddy's. A very comforting, delicious drink.
Excellent! My prior efforts at making hot buttered rum always turned out disgusting, but this makes excellent drinks! I think I might possibly double the spices next time around, but otherwise this is wonderful. I think the people who complain about it being syrupy are letting it sit out at room temprature for too long. I keep the stuff in the freezer, and when I want some, I boil a mug of water and scoop a couple tablespoons of this into it, which cools it just enough to drink right away. Then I just throw in a little bit of rum. This is a great after-ski drink, and a nightcap as well!
Wonderful! I made this and shared with my family and it hit the spot. Warm, sweet, and merry.
Great recipe! I added about 1/2 tsp of ground cloves and halved the recipe which still made plenty.
I thought that it was very very messy if you have company. We have a self serve bar and this stuff was very gooey. It tasted good, but not for everyone.
I loved it! The second time I added 1/2 tsp ground cloves, and that was even better (I love ground cloves!)
made a big batch for Thanksgiving - the whole family loved it. I think I use more rum and more batter than they call for in a mug.
I first made this several years ago, and it makes a TON. We love it this way instead of the store bought.
Move over coffee!! This is so warm and wonderful on this freezing MN evening. I did as others suggested...and added 2 TBSP of the batter to hot water & rum. Also, tried a non-alcoholic version......2 TBSP batter and 8 oz hot Apple Cider. Very yummy!**UPDATE: Substituted Rum with ButterShots (butterscotch schnapps)...WOW, its hard to decide which is my favorite. This has become our favorite eve drink while wrapping gifts.
This is a great improvement on the recipe I had been using. I like a creamier drink so I use milk rather than water and just pop it in the microwave to heat. A perfect drink for a cold evening!
I have a holiday party based on this drink every year. It's a hit with everyone. Delicious even without the rum as an alternative to hot cider or hot chocolate. Tasty!
This is very good. I do agree with other reviewers that you want to double the spices so there is still a strong cinnamon/nutmeg flavoring once the mix is added into the beverage.
Holy moley. Where has this been all my life. I work in a restaurant and we made a double batch in the kitchen after closing last night with Blue Bell ice cream. I can think of so many things this would be amazing with. Over cinnamon roles, over ice cream, with apple cider, in hot water, in my coffee. I could go on and on. This will always be in my freezer. I was surprised to find that it doesn't freeze solid. Maybe because of all the sugar. Is that normal?
This is almost exactly like my Mom's recipe. We added real vanilla beans and used french vanilla ice cream instead of using confectioners sugar. I like to added an extra pat of salted butter when I mix in the hot water. Also try mixing it over a carmel square. So yummy!!!!
This is very good but I think the recipe is off saying confectioners sugar, I think it should be granulated so that's what I used. I wasn't sure how it would work with the powdered sugar. I did like everyone said and used 2 T per cup of the batter and the spiced rum. YUM. It's not what my husband calls hot buttered rum but it's good.
Very good and simple.
