Hogsmeade Butterbeer Snack Mix

October 2, 2018 2 Comments

As a Harry Potter fangirl, it’s always Harry season around here, but during September and October, I love to welcome fall by marathon watching all eight movies, drinking copious amounts of homemade Butterbeer, and playing Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans challenges. Since I’m a grown up who plays with her food, I took it upon myself to play around with a classic Muddy Buddies recipe to create a Harry Potter approved version that I call Butterbeer Snack Mix. Appropriately so, because it tastes like a Butterbeer in solid form. Sweet, deliciously so, and crunchy, satisfying the buttery-iest of cravings!

The first thing I do is measure out some Chex cereal into a large plastic bag.

In a medium glass bowl, I add some butterscotch chips, butter, vanilla paste, and butter flavoring and melt it all together over a medium pot of boiling water until smooth.

I add the butterscotch mixture to the plastic bag with the cereal and shake it gently to coat.

Then I add in some toffee bits and powdered sugar and shake it all again to coat.

I spread the mixture over a baking sheet and sprinkle with these pretty sprinkles I found at Fancy Sprinkles. You can find the Gold Digger ones I used here.

Once the Butterbeer Snack Mix has cooled and set completely, I scoop it up into paper bags or beer mugs and serve it up for the next showing of Harry Potter movies.

My kiddos love it when I incorporate their favorite movies into a snack and I’m a sucker for a themed movie night, which makes this fun Butterbeer Snack Mix a favorite around here in October, when we watch the Harry Potter movies annually. It’s the very best way to welcome fall and Halloween.

    • This year, he would be anticipating his eleventh birthday. I would be preparing to read him Harry Potter & the Scorcerer’s Stone that I would gift him on his special day because as far as I’m concerned, that’s when you read the first book. In your eleventh year. When you get your letter. We’d sort him into a House. Hufflepuff like mom, hopefully, but when he’s sorted into Gryffindor I’d tell him I always knew. And we’d enjoy Chocolate Frogs together as we read. #grief #griefmom #babyloss #babylossawareness #michigan #upnorth #northernmichigan #infantloss #infantlossawareness
