Harry Potter Butter Beer - looks yummy! Check it out at http://milkandcuddles.com/2010/06/harry-potter-butterbeer-recipe/



  • * 1 cup (8 oz) club soda or cream soda
  • * ½ cup (4 oz) butterscotch syrup (ice cream topping)
  • * ½ tablespoon butter
  • *(optional) Heavy Cream


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: Whip Heavy Cream using an electric mixer until thickened, but not completely stiff (about 2 minutes) Spoon over drinks.

Serve in two coffee mugs or small glasses; a perfectly warm Hogwarts treat for two!

Sweet Treat's
Here are a few ideas for sweet treats with just enough spook to delight your Halloween party guests.

Wormy Apples

Easy assemble caramel aples. Purchase carmel at your grocer that is ready to melt and dip.

Caramel Apples
1 cup butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla, 8-10 wooden sticks
8-10 medium tart apples
Wash and dry the apples, removing any stems. Insert a wooden stick into the end of each apple. Combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and milk in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for 30 to 40 minutes, or until syrup reaches 248 degrees (firm ball stage) on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Dip each apple into the caramel mixture, swirling to coat. DIp apples, while warm place worms all around in caramel and let cool. Set apples on wax paper to cool completely before serving. Yummmmm!

Invisible Suckers

I made these last year and again this year for our farmers market - they are fun!
Makes 1 dozen.
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
Assorted candies and seeds, such as red and black licorice whips, candy corn, and pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)
Line three baking sheets with Silpat nonstick baking mats or parchment paper. Bring sugar, corn syrup, and 1/4 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Don't stir, but occasionally wash down sides of pan with a pastry brush dipped in cold water to prevent crystals from forming; boil until mixture turns golden and registers 300 degrees to 310 degrees (hard-crack stage) on a candy thermometer, 5 to 7 minutes. Working quickly, pour syrup onto baking sheets, forming circles (3 to 31/2 inches in diameter) and spacing pours about 4 inches apart .http://e.marthastewart.com/a/hBI8KNdB7SaHaB7WcB7$UzRuI4Z/recipe.
