Baby it's cold outside ... but this should warm things up.

1 pound brown sugar (456 grams)
1/2 lb powdered sugar (228 grams)
2 whole eggs (or equivalent in pasteurized egg product)
1/2 lb butter (228 grams)
1/4 tsp ground cloves (1.5 grams)
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg (1.5 grams)

Mix all ingredients well with an electric mixer or by hand. Store in covered container in the refrigerator. Use about one heaping spoonful (or more to suit your taste) per mug of hot milk or boiling water, add one jigger of rum or brandy.

Many thanks to my friend Norm who shared this recipe long ago.
