Hot Buttered Rum

With all the cold weather we had, I have been wanting to try my hand at a nice hot drink. Even a Hot Toddy didn't do the trick. This one my friends..... was hot, delicious and perfect for a cold winter night.
½ c softened butter
1 c brown sugar
1/4 tsp fresh nutmeg
⅓ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients together until smooth and completely combined. Line a baking pan with parchment paper then using a small cookie scooper, scoop into balls and drop onto wax paper. Freeze for about an hour then transfer into a ziploc bag so you can make a drink at a moments notice.
This is how you make your Hot Buttered Rum:
Using a glass mug, drop 2 small frozen butter balls into bottom of mug, fill the mug halfway full with hot steaming water, top off with some spiced rum, a dollop of whip cream then sprinkle a little nutmeg on top. Add a cinnamon stick and adjust to your taste :)
