I made this for a large group and it turned out great. I actually made it the night before (sans rum), stored it in the fridge, warmed it up the next morning with the rum and it was delicious! - Thanks for a great recipe!!
This was delicious. Brought it to an oyster roast and it was huge hit! It wasn't too sweet at all, but because of the too sweet comment, I didn't put a ton of sugar in the whipped cream and it worked perfectly. Yummy!
I made this for a party we had tonight and it was a big success. I looked all over the internet for recipes for hot buttered rum. Some are quite involved and come from several reputable places. I wanted something quick and simple that I could just put together and then leave for guests to help themselves. This recipe does just that. You make enough for the number of guests expected and then let it simmer in the crockpot for 5 hours. There are a couple of pointers that I think would help. First of all, we used only 1/3 of the rum, and it should be dark rum for better flavor. We left a bottle of Myers dark rum by the crockpot for guests who wa... read more
It was truly excellent and to the above post everyone knows you have to adjust recipes to taste and if you didn't do it then you have only youslef to blame.
I have a happy hour once a month and this is the second time I have used this recipe at Christmas time. I get lots of requests for the recipe. It is really good!
Note: I forgot to start it early enough this year so I did it on high for the first hour and then low for 2.5 hours and it turned out as good as last year!

I have been a Hot Buttered Rum fan for over 40 years. This is the best I've had and very easy to make. I served it at a party recently. It was a big hit! The recipe was requested by several guests.
This was absolutely wonderful! What a GREAT hot beverage for the holidays!!
This is a great for the whole family. The children and adults can all enjoy, just add the Rum to each glass individually for the adults. This is a fantastic drink, and the whole house smells festive.
This is wonderful! Next time I would use only half the brown sugar, so it wouldn't be so sweet.
This was way too sweet and no one drank it. A waste of rum
I am attempting to make this recipe, but I'm confused on the heavy cream-whipped. When do you use it and how much. I see whipped cream as a topping at the end, so why would it call for 'heavy' whipped cream? Did I buy a quart for nothing?
Heavy cream is whipped to become "whipped cream"
This recipe says "ready in 2hrs" and then says to cook on low for 5hrs. Do you not check your recipes to make sure they are correct?
No, it says Ready in: > 2 hrs which means the recipe takes MORE THAN 2 hours. That symbol means "greater than"
