You won’t believe how much butter and sugar go into a typical recipe for Hot Buttered Rum. Hint: It’s the equivalent of 20 chocolate kisses. I know—I was in total shock. That’s why I decided to whip up a slimmer version that’s just as yummy and cozy as the original. You’ll notice there’s no actual butter in my recipe…that’s because the maple syrup provides a buttery flavor. Cheers!
