Harry Potter Butterbeer
When we visited The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter in Universal Studios, finding butterbeer was at the top of our list! It was so delish that when we got home, we wanted to recreate the recipe on our own.
Not only was this butterbeer recipe super easy to recreate, it tastes just like the real thing. With just four ingredients and a couple of minutes, you can whip up a batch of your own. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported straight to Diagon Alley!
Too chilly outside for a cold drink? Skip the hot chocolate and make this hot butterbeer instead! I love this option for Halloween parties too!
Marshmallow Butterbeer Latte
While hot butterbeer sounds good, I’ll be making this marshmallow butterbeer latte next time the temperatures drop. This expresso drink, sweetened with brown sugar and topped with whipped cream and marshmallows, totally has me drooling!
For the grownups only: While the kids are enjoying the regular Harry Potter food and drinks, grownups can take it up a notch with Boozy Butterbeer instead!
Butterbeer Jell-o Shots
While you’re making boozy versions, you definitely don’t want to leave out these awesome Butterbeer Jell-o Shots! This is such a fun recipe that I may even hand these out to the grownup trick-or-treaters at Halloween!
Butterbeer Food Recipes
Butterbeer Cookie Mugs
You’ll need something to eat with your butterbeer and these Butterbeer Cookie Mugs from Hungry Happenings look pretty tasty!
Butterbeer Pudding Cookies
Just like there’s more than one kind of butterbeer, there are plenty of butterbeer cookie recipes to go around too. Butterbeer Pudding Cookies from Sugar Bean Bakers would be perfect for your party.
Butterbeer Muddy Buddies
Take traditional muddy buddies to the next level with Butterbeer Muddy Buddies instead. I may even whip up a batch and give them as gifts to all my Harry Potter loving friends.
Butterbeer Ice Cream
There aren’t many delicious treats we love more than ice cream, which is why this Butterbeer Ice Cream recipe is so perfect for a party! The bonus is that since it’s no churn, this recipe is pretty simple to make too.
If you want an entire day filled with delicious treats, why not start it off with some Butterbeer Pancakes! It would make a fun breakfast surprise for your birthday boy or girl. Plus, who wouldn’t want to wake up to find these on the breakfast table!
Harry Potter Drink Recipes (that aren’t butterbeer)
Whip up a batch of this Polyjuice Potion Punch, then sit back and watch your guests turn into other people! Okay, we know that the stuff in the Harry Potter movies doesn’t actually happen in real life…but it sure would be cool!
Pumpkin Juice (With Apple Juice)
When the students sat down for meals at the Great Hall, they didn’t drink butterbeer…they drank pumpkin juice. In the wizarding world, it’s the equivalent of orange juice.
That’s why this Copycat Pumpkin Juice Recipe makes another great drink option for your party. You’ll just need pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice and a few other ingredients to make a batch of your own.
Harry Potter Cakes And Cupcakes
Harry Potter Always Cake
When my daughter first asked me to recreate this Harry Potter Cake from Pinterest, I had my doubts. Clearly that one was made by a professional and I wasn’t sure I’d pull it off.
Though it wasn’t quite as extravagant as the original, we were pretty happy with the results. My daughter absolutely loved her cake and in the end, that’s all that matters!
Golden Snitch Cake
Now, if you want to talk about professional cakes, check out this Harry Potter Golden Snitch Cake. Your guests will be amazed when they see this awesome creation!
Harry Potter Unicorn Cake
Combine Harry Potter with unicorns and what do you get? This adorable Harry Potter unicorn cake. It’s double the magic!
Harry Potter Birthday Cake
This Harry Potter birthday cake, made to look like our favorite wizard, is simple and fits perfectly with the party theme.
Monster Book Of Monsters Cake
This Monster Book Of Monsters cake is way more cute than scary. I think he should be more worried about us biting him than the other way around!
These Butterbeer Cupcakes from Food Fun & Faraway Places look so delish and make an easy alternative to baking a cake!

Let the kids pick one of these Sorting Hat Cupcakes for a fun surprise. Each one contains a different color so they’ll have to take a bite to find out which Hogwart’s House they belong in.
Harry Potter Pasties And Pies
If you want Harry Potter savory recipes, you’ve got to try these yummy looking Harry Potter Pumpkin Pasties. In the world of Harry Potter, pumpkin pasties are said to be similar to a cornish pastry, but filled with pumpkin instead.
They’re normally found on the Hogwarts Express but now you can serve up a batch of your own.
Elves Curry Puffs
If they’re good enough for the elves, these savory Elves Curry Puffs are good enough for us too.
Traditional Treacle Tart
If you’ve read the Harry Potter books, you already know that the Treacle Tart is Harry’s favorite dessert! The best part about this one is that it’s so simple to make, you probably already have the ingredients in your pantry.
Treacle Tart With Rosemary & Lemon
This treacle tart version looks just as delish! I love the combination of ingredients like brown butter, rosemary and lemon and can’t wait to give this one a try.
Harry Potter Howlers
Normally nobody wants to see one of these show up! However these edible version of Harry Potter Howlers are a lot more fun than the movie ones.
More Harry Potter Food
How cute are these Cheese And Pretzel Broomsticks? Not only are they easy to make but they also give kids a healthier alternative to choose from.
Think you could eat a cockroach? How about if it were made with chocolate and pecans? Kids will love being grossed out by these buggy Cockroach Clusters.
You’ll never guess what’s inside these adorable spellbook treats. I don’t want to ruin the surprise but let’s just say that that your guests are going to love these surprisingly simple, and delicious, snacks!
Golden Snitch Truffles
You’ll have to be fast to get one of these golden snitch truffles before they all fly off the plate. Made with OREO cookies, they’re sure to disappear fast.
Deathly Hallows Sugar Cookies
If you’re looking for easy Harry Potter cookies, try these Deathly Hallows Sugar Cookies. You can never go wrong with cookies and these fit the theme perfectly.
Sold at Honeydukes Sweetshop, acid pops are similar to lollipops but with an unusual twist. They burn a hole in your tongue (which Ron Weasley learned the hard way).
Luckily, muggles like us have nothing to worry about. This fun treat is a much safer version.
Ferrero Rocher Golden Snitches
Not only do these Golden Snitches fit perfectly with the Harry Potter theme, they’re super easy to make too. Just add these printable wings to Ferrero Rocher candies and you’ve got a simple to make treat that tastes delish!
With so much flavor in one little bite, everyone will want a second (or maybe a third) piece of this delicious butterbeer fudge!
Harry Potter Pretzel Wands
I’m a huge fan of giving treat bags with food instead of trinkets. The kids always love getting treats to bring home and moms love not having extra toys lying around.
Make these Harry Potter Pretzel Wands and put them in a bag tied with pretty ribbon for the perfect goodie bag idea.
If you’re having a Harry Potter movie night, there’s nothing more perfect than a big bowl of butterbeer popcorn! You can never go wrong with a combination of sweet and salty!
Lemon Drop Candies
Dumbledore loved his lemon drops! These Lemon Drop Candies are the perfect mix of sweet and sour and I totally get why it was Dumbledore’s favorite muggle candy.
Sorting Hat Cookies
What house would the sorting hat put you in? Find out with these fun sorting hat cookies. It’s such a clever idea and the kids will have a blast finding out which house they’ve been assigned to!
Harry Potter Chocolate Frogs
Wizards get hungry when their riding the Hogwarts Express and if they’re quick enough, they may just catch one of these chocolate frogs. We made these our own Harry Potter party and they were a big hit…and they didn’t even try to get away!
Monster Book Snacks
One of the most recognizable characters in the movies has to be the Monster Book Of Monsters. That’s why I’m loving these Monster Book Snacks!
This would also be a fun party activity. Just set out the ingredients and the kids would have a blast making their own monster.
Butterbeer Sandwich Cookies
These Butterbeer Sandwich Cookies remind me a lot of whoopie pies…but with a tasty butterbeer twist.
Harry Potter Hot Chocolate Bombs
I am seriously loving these Harry Potter Hot Cocoa Bombs! They’re so cute and original that it’s almost a shame to ruin them with hot milk…but we’re going to do it anyway!
Which of these Harry Potter recipes will you try first? I think the Harry Potter Howlers would be fun to make and of course I’d have to try the Butterbeer! What Harry Potter food should I add to the list?
