Butterbeer Latte

I’ve recently been having trouble coping with the fact that I’m unemployed. Everyone keeps telling me that a lot of recent college grads can’t find jobs right out of school and I KNOW THAT, but it still sucks. At the start of the summer, right after graduation, I was working part time at a Quizno’s and doing a part time internship at a local Museum. I left both of those jobs for what I thought would be a better opportunity. I soon realized that the new opportunity was just.not.right.for.me.  And so, here I sit, creating crafts and cupcakes until my funds run out and I have to go back to working a part-time gig. I didn’t mind my part-time job at Quizno’s, it’s familiar, it pays the bills, and all my co-workers were so nice. But even working a part-time job makes the task of finding a full-time job in your field more difficult. Scheduling interviews and all that fun stuff around a part-time job can be a nuisance. Having to get ready for an interview at your part-time job and hurry over to find the place is even more frustrating.

All this venting to bring you a recipe, yes! After receiving some bad news about a job prospect yesterday, I needed to feel comfort today. SO, there’s a pot roast in my crockpot, I made myself a Butterbeer Latte and Hocus Pocus is playing on the TV. Without further ado, I give you the recipe for a Butterbeer Latte!


2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 cup milk

1 teaspoon rum extract

Dash of cinnamon



1) Melt the butter and brown sugar on the stove in small saucepan over medium heat.

2) Once your butter and brown sugar have melted into a caramel sauce, add the milk, rum extract and cinnamon.

3) Keep on medium heat and heat until boiling, stirring occasionally.

4) Once boiling, pout into your favorite coffee mug!

This drink is seriously what I needed to make me feel warm and comforted on this chilly morning!
