Butterbeer Hot Chocolate


I love Harry Potter. It is one of my favorite movies, and the books are amazing. Harry Potter has inspired so much yummy ideas for my kids treats when they were younger. Every time we visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, in Universal Studios Hollywood, we always stop for Frozen Butterbeer. It is a treat not to be missed.


But today, it is drizzling outside, and it is much too cold for the park today, so since it is Halloween, and since, Halloween is my favorite holiday, I thought I would share with you how I make Butterbeer Hot Chocolate!


This could not be more easy, and the whole family will chug-a-lug it! That is a word that we use in my house, and we have been using it for over 21 years, so there is no stopping now!

You just need :

Half and Half


Butterscotch Chips

White Chocolate Chips

Vanilla Extract

Caramel Sauce (Store bought, or homemade)

Whipped Cream


This is really super fantastic, and just in time for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them! I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to see it! I heard that there is going to be 5 movies coming out on this series. 5!

If you would like to get a super cool Butterbeer Mug, like the one above, you can here!

So tonight, gather with some Harry Potter movies, and drink this yummy Butterbeer Hot Chocolate! Happy Halloween!
