It shocks me that I have yet to post on this recipe. While living in Germany it was tradition for the military folks to travel all over Europe to visit the various Christmas Bazaars. Spangdahlem AFB always did an exceptional job especially those 22 Stinger Spouses. Every year they sold Glühwein- hot spiced wine, and Hot Buttered Rum. They did have the biggest following. One thing they did that was really neat was that they sold this Long Lasting Hot Buttered Rum in small jars, or you could purchase their cookbook and make it yourself. I bought the book.
Just a spoonful or two of this batter added to hot water and a splash of rum will definitely warm the cockles of your heart for the evening. You will feel it go all the way down! We also serve it sans rum and call the drink Toffee Steamers. A scoop in our morning coffee for a Toffee Coffee has been found to be delicious too.
Long Lasting Hot Buttered Rum- adapted from the 22 Stinger Spouses
1 pound light brown sugar
8 ounces honey
2 sticks salted butter
7 ounce jar marshmallow creme
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg, I used fresh
1 T. vanilla
In a large bowl using your stand mixer or hand mixer, beat all ingredients until well blended. Pour into a one quart jar and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Stores for 3 months. To serve, place one or two tablespoonfuls in a mug of boiling water. Add a splash of rum and top with whipped cream. Also good as a virgin drink topped with whipped cream and we like a scoop every now and again in our coffee. This makes great gifts, simply give in smaller jars with a gift tag stating…
