Looking for a quick gift?

If you are looking for a quick gift that everyone will love, try making a batch of Hot Buttered Rum Mix. It is kept in the freezer and lasts forever.

For those of you who are calorie counters... come back tomorrow. Y'all may as well just skip this post all together.

Hot Buttered Rum Mix
4 sticks butter
1# brown sugar
1# confectioners sugar
1 quart vanilla ice cream
1 Tbs cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
Melt the butter in a large pot with the sugars. Stir until smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the ice cream. Stir until well blended. Add spices. Pour into gift sized containers (I use small plastic containers that can be kept in the freezer) Tie with a pretty ribbon and add instructions.

The instructions would read...
Add 1-2 scoop of mix with 1 oz rum to your favorite mug. Fill with hot water. Top with whipped cream and y'all enjoy!

Merry Christmas Y'all!

Oh now that does sound yummy. I presume one could skip the rum...

Just stopping by to thank you for your recent comment about the gingerbread house. It's always fun to reconnect with bloggers I've lost track of along the way.

Have a Merry Christmas!
