Considering the first part of the last Harry Potter movie (The Deathly Hallows Pt 1) opens for a midnight showing tonight, I thought I’d devote today to everything Harry Potter!
To begin, here’s a perfect recipe for Harry Potter parties, especially since temperatures keep dropping. Of course, I’m talking about Butterbeer!
Actually, I have two recipes. If you search online, there are hundreds of varying recipes, so I’m showing you one that is very easy to make, and one that is a little more complicated, but both look good!
Rosmerta's Recipes - Butterbeer by Melissa
- 1 cup (8 oz) club soda or cream soda
- ½ cup (4 oz) butterscotch syrup (ice cream topping)
- ½ tablespoon butter
Step 1: Measure butterscotch and butter into a 2 cup (16 oz) glass. Microwave on high for 1 to 1½ minutes, or until syrup is bubbly and butter is completely incorporated.
Step 2: Stir and cool for 30 seconds, then slowly mix in club soda. Mixture will fizz quite a bit.
Step 3: Serve in two coffee mugs or small glasses; a perfectly warm Hogwarts treat for two!
Now for the harder recipe…
How to Make Butterbeer - Perfected Recipe
- 10 OZ of Cream Soda (1 & 1/4 cups)
- 1 Tbsp of Salted REAL Butter
- 1/2 Cup Butterscotch chips
- 1/4 Cup liquid Creamer
Put the Butterscotch Chips and Butter in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds. Stir and Heat for another 30 seconds.
The Chips and butter should be a thick stir-able paste.
Now add your Creamer to the bowl. I use the Original Coffee Mate Liquid Creamer.
Microwave in 30 Second increments again. Stirring each time.
I have found it usually takes about 4 times (2 minutes) to get the right consistency.
Set your mixture aside.
Heat Cream soda in the microwave for 90 seconds.
BE VERY CAREFUL!
Since microwaves vary I must add, my microwave needs about 2 minutes.
Make sure not to over heat the Cream Soda or all of the fizz will be gone.
Pour Butterscotch mixture into heated Cream Soda.
Stir & Serve!
