Harry Potter Recipes
From Butterbeer Ice Cream to Sorting Hat Cookies, there’s no shortage of ideas to choose from. Some are easy, like the chocolate frogs made from a candy mold. Others, like the Golden Snitch Cake will take a little more work. I did this on a smaller scale recently with these Golden Snitch Peanut Butter Balls…SO delish!
The good part is that any of these will be perfect for your party! (If you want even more recipes, you might also like this Harry Potter Recipes Book)

You can’t have a party without cake, right?
This is actually the Harry Potter Cake that I made for my daughter’s birthday. She’d actually found a similar one that she loved on Pinterest and asked me to recreate it.
