Did anyone else stock up during the holiday baking sales? I did. My husband was making fun of me the other day because I maybe have 8 pounds of butter in the freezer. But it was a dollar and a half off!  That’s just too hard to pass up.  Speaking of butter…

You guys, I am so excited to share this hot buttered Kahlua with you. This hot buttered batter is something I look forward to every year. There’s nothing like it. It can be mixed with lots of different things and turn out yummy. Rum, brandy, Kahlua. It would probably be good with Rumchata too, but I’ve never tried that. My favorite combo though is this way…hot buttered Kahlua.  It’s rich and creamy and spicy and oh so smooth. It tastes like a fancy coffee house drink, but with hardly any effort at all. Like seriously, this may be the easiest recipe I’ve ever posted.

I usually bring this hot buttered batter to my mom’s house for New Year’s eve. It works well for a party type setting. The adults can add alcohol, if desired, while the kids and anyone who doesn’t wish to imbibe can still feel included by adding a tablespoon of the batter to hot tea or cocoa for a special treat. Either way it makes a buttery, cinnamony, warm you from the inside out drink.
