Instructions
  1. Prepare ingredients ahead of time by leaving ice cream and butter out to soften about an hour before preparing.
  2. Using a standing or hand mixer, cream softened butter and brown sugar together until creamy.
  3. Slowly add in powdered sugar and mix until well blended.
  4. Scoop softened ice cream into the batter in chunks as the mixer is running. Mix until all of the ice cream is blended smooth.
  5. Transfer batter to an airtight container and freeze until ready to use.
  6. To make the hot buttered rums, place a large heaping tablespoon of batter into a cup.
  7. Pour 1/2-1 full shot of brandy over batter depending on how strong you like your drink.
  8. Pour 1/2-1 full shot of white rum over batter. Muddle the batter and liquor together until ice cream has dissolved.
  9. Pour boiling water over batter and stir until well blended. Sprinkle nutmeg on top and serve.
Recipe Notes

-You can make hot buttered rums for the kiddos too by skipping the liquor and melting the batter into a mug of hot water.
-If you want to use the entire half gallon of ice cream in your recipe, adjust the remaining ingredients up accordingly.
