  • 1 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C light corn syrup
  • 1/3 C butter
  • 2/3 C heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp rum extract


Hot Butterbeer

  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 C milk
  • 2 C heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 C cream soda



  • In a medium saucepan bring the brown sugar, corn syrup and butter to a boil
  • boil until the syrup reaches 240 degrees (remembering to adjust for altitude)
  • take off the heat and let cool slightly, about 5 mins
  • stir in the heavy whipping cream
  • add the salt, apple cider vinegar and rum extract and stir
  • let cool

Whipping topping

  • beat the marshmallow creme, heavy whipping cream and 2 Tbsp of the butterscotch syrup together - you want it to be fluffy and white but not stiff

Hot Butterbeer

  • In a medium saucepan heat the milk and brown sugar up until the brown sugar is just dissolved
  • Add the heavy whipping cream and bring up to the temperature you want to serve your hot butterbeer at (don't let it boil and stir frequently)
  • Add 1/2-3/4 C of the butterscotch syrup. Stir until incorporated and take off the heat
  • Add the cream soda and serve the hot butterbeer with some of the whipped topping
  • refrigerate leftover butterscotch and topping
