  • 2-3 tablespoons Chocolate Hot Buttered Rum Mix recipe HERE
  • 2 1/2 ounces good quality dark rum I used SelvaRey which is actually a cacao rum. SO GOOD. This isn't sponsored, but it's a fun brand. You can use whatever your favorite dark rum is
  • 3 ounces boiling water
  • 3 large marshmallows for garnish optional


  • Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the Chocolate Hot Buttered Rum Mix into the bottom of your glass.
  • Pour the rum over the mix.
  • Top with 3 ounces boiling water (or top to the top of your glass)
  • Stir to combine. It may take a minute to melt and stir together, but be patient. Deliciousness is coming!
  • Top with marshmallows if desired and serve warm.
  • Enjoy!
