The new Harry Potter movie is coming out, yes I admit it I adore Harry Potter and everything involving the Harry Potter world, Hogwarts, every detail. I am a total nerd when it comes to it too. And although all the darn tickets were sold out here in my town and I MUST wait until there are some available I’m still crazy excited about seeing it! With that, I thought I would share a neat recipe on a crazy awesome bloggers page and a few Etsy shops that have really awesome HANDMADE items that will make you feel like your right smack dab in the Harry Potter world!
First things first, my friend showed me a blog that showed a recipe for Butterbeer (if you’ve seen Harry Potter you know what that is.) The blog is called Bakingdom and after taking a trip to WWOHP she recreated the Butterbeer at home so that if your unable to make the trip you can make it at home!!! See her post HERE
Makes 6 servings
**All research I conducted turned up that McCormick’s Imitation Butter Flavor is vegan, but I cannot guarantee it**
FOR THE BUTTERBEER
6 12-ounce bottles chilled cream soda [I prefer IBC (which is vegan) or Polar Classics Vanilla, but any will work perfectly], substitute diet cream soda for a still yummy sugar-free version
3 teaspoons (1 tablespoon) imitation butter flavor, or 2 tablespoons clarified butter (instructions linked above **clarified butter does not always blend well with the cold beverage, see info above**)
OPTIONAL – 1 ounce light rum, per serving, for adults only
FOR THE FOAM (Vegan/Dairy-free recipe linked above)
2 cups heavy cream
6 tablespoons sugar, or splenda for sugar free version
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons imitation butter (if using clarified butter, double the amount to 3 teaspoons, or 1 tablespoon)

Lastly do not forget to try Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans by Jelly belly I have tried every flavor lol just to say I have!
I did not like all of them mind you… or most of them especially the vomit flavored one… cringe. But its a pretty fun game if you empty them out into a bowl and hide the box and just grab one to see what you get… not always pleasant but FUN! I once gave them out during Halloween it was a hit!
TTFN readers I’m awaiting being able to see Harry Potter eeek!
