 Halloween is around the corner and here is a tasty drink for all you “muggles”!



1 cup light or dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
6 tablespoons butter
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cider vinegar
¾ cup heavy cream, divided
½ teaspoon rum extract
4 12 oz cans cream soda


In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar and water. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture reads 240°F on a candy thermometer.

Stir in the butter, salt, vinegar and 1/4 of the heavy cream. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the rum extract.

In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar mixture and the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream.
Use an electric mixer to beat until just thickened, but not completely whipped, about 2 to 3 minutes.

To serve: divide the brown sugar mixture between 4 tall glasses (about 1/4 cup for each glass). Add 1/4 cup of cream soda to each glass, then stir to combine. Fill each glass nearly to the top with additional cream soda, then spoon the whipped topping over each.
