Can't believe I've lived this long and not heard of this. At first I thought "this is weird" but I like hot buttered rum… I had all the ingredients so I gave it a try! Took less than 5 minutes to put together. It's not my mom's cinnamon toast. Took a couple of tastes to get use to it but this stuff is very good! I'm serving this at my next Sunday brunch and probably many other occasions. Thanks Patty Cakes!

Your knows those times when you look in the fridge and are crestfallen to discover you only have the SAME fruit spread for your toast you had yesterday, last Month? Well, NOT ANY MORE! This rum butter will liven up your toast, bagel, muffin, pancakes, etc in no time flat!! I only made a small amount, since it lasts a while in my house. I also used Turbinado sugar, b/c I was out of br. sugar. This is AWESOME! It reminds me of the Hot buttered Rum batter I was gifted at Christmas;) Now I don't have to wait till the holidays to enjoy a special treat! Thank you Very much Phoebe!
