Hot Buttered Rum Mix
Always requested at all my holiday gatherings, it is delicious beyond belief!
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 (16 ounce) package confectioners' (powdered) sugar, sifted
1 pound light brown sugar, packed
1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened
In a large bowl cream the butter and the sugars together until smooth. Add the softened ice cream and mix until a creamy consistency is obtained. Transfer this to a freezer container with a tight fitting lid. Place in the freezer for up to 1 month.
To Serve: Place a heaping 2 tablespoons of the frozen mix in a highball glass or coffee mug. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons dark rum. Pour over the mix 6 ounces of boiling water and stir until the mixture is melted. Sprinkle top with cinnamon or nutmeg and serve.
