We always love Tom & Jerry's around the holidays but didn't care for the frozen stuff we found at the grocery store. So I started making up my own version. It's definitely not for the diet conscious though!
1Beat egg whites until stiff. Set aside.
Beat egg yolks until light yellow and thickened.
2Whip butter, adding powdered sugar a cup at a time until well incorporated.
Add egg yolks, extract and spices. Mix well.
Mix in egg whites until well combined.
3To serve: fill large mug 1/3-1/2 full of batter, add brandy and rum (to taste). Fill to top with hot water. Mix well. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Can use different types of alcohol. Malibu Rum or Captain Morgan Rum is really good.
4Keeps well in refrigerator for a couple weeks and can also be frozen.
