I thought this was great... I use cider exclusively in place of water, but I do that with everything like this. This is very rich and creamy... definitely the best I've tried! P.S. If you change everything in the recipe (amounts, ingredients, cooking time) and then ultimately you don't like the end result, don't come back and rate the recipe a "three". Don't rate the recipe at ALL unless you FOLLOW it; that's just not fair.

So disappointing. I followed the instructions to the letter, but it just doesn't taste that great. It's too sweet and not buttery enough for my liking. If I were to make this again, I'd cut the confectioner's sugar completely. Overall, it's just not that good for the calories you're consuming while drinking it.

Wonderful! Used Captain Morgan's spiced rum, topped with French Vanilla Cool Whip and sprinkled nutmeg on top. An addicting dessert in a mug.

Oh so yummy. I cut the recipe in half thinking it seemed like alot. Wrong move. Make the whole recipe. Add double batter, rum and spices. Added whipped cream, sprinked w/ cinnamon. Used Captain Morgans spiced rum. My friends loved it!!!

My mom uses this same recipe. When we were young we got to have it in coffee as a treat. She gave me a tub of it and my roommate ate it all with a spoon like ice cream! Good stuff!

This was the first time I have ever had anything like this, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was good. Not the kind of drink I drink all night, its very rich, but what a treat!

Made this batter Christmas Eve and just finished the batter tonight, end of March ! An excellent recipe but you may want to cut it in half. I gave batter away to two different friends and still had tons left over. It is so darn good, we even warmed it in the microwave and poured it over vanilla ice cream as a sauce, yummy !

Simply delicious! I put 2 tbsp of batter as others have suggested with 1-2 oz spiced rum topped with cool whip. It was a hit on Christmas day and will definetly make it again :)
