Week 11: Hot Buttered Rum

2 quarts warm water
1/2 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
6 whole cloves
2 cups rum

Combine all ingredients, except rum, in Crock Pot.  Cook on low for 4-5 hours.  Add rum.  Ladle into mugs, top with whipped cream and nutmeg.

Let's first start by welcoming a new Crock Pot to the brigade!  I decided that since I was trying so many different things, I needed another pot.  The one I had is awesome, but it's huge.  This new pot is only 4 quarts and will be perfect for recipes like this one, dips, and desserts.

Now onto the recipe....OH MY GOODNESS!  This is delicious.  (That's an understatement.)  This treat is so warm and smooth that you might forget there is a lot of alcohol in it!  When you first turn it on, the butter starts to melt and makes a strange film over the top.  I kept the pot heating up and occasionally would run a whisk through.  It turned out fine in the end.  In fact, the only problem with this recipe is that we ran out so quickly.  (Maybe I should have used my other huge Crock Pot!)

Finally, thanks to Christopher N. for referring me to this recipe.  And if you haven't already, visit his blog- Gateau Chateau, the place for everything CAKE!!!!  The link can be found to the right under my lists of blogs I follow.


  1. Hi! Found your blog through Making Memories in the Kitchen. I'll definitely have to dig my crockpot out and try this. My friends love a butter rum drink we make so this will be something good for our next get together!

  2. Thanks for following! If you have a respectable party, I suggest you double the recipe!!!

  3. NICE new crockpot!! Very cool! Should be starting my recipes this week :) This recipe sounds very yummy, and just what I need after today--my students were CRAZY. My crockpot is huge too, but I have a smaller one for applesauce and such...

  4. I've made this recipe before, for the Northern Noels. They all loved it.
