You can’t levitate things with a spell, but you can still enjoy some Butterbeer recipes from the wizarding world Harry Potter introduced us to long ago. While we may not be able to cast spells in real life, we can enjoy some of the treats that Harry and his friends do in the movies.
One of our favorites is any of the best Butterbeer recipes. Many of us are familiar with the idea of butterbeer from the books or the movies. Everyone is most likely picturing a drink and that’s fair. But there are other ways to enjoy butterbeer ideas.
You can make the drinks, sure, but what about some cupcakes, brownies, cakes, fudge, pancakes? You can make all of these things and more with the same flavor as butterbeer! You’d be surprised by just how many things you can make from the wizarding world.

The drink was introduced in the third book, Prisoner of Azkaban. J.K Rowling describes it as a butterscotch only less “sickly”. That is where we start the base for butterbeer recipes that are made in real life. Butterscotch is actually quite an easy flavor to make, brown butter gets the job done.
But less sickly makes it slightly vaguer than just butterscotch. That is why we may not get the exact recipe correct. But we can get close enough to enjoy our own ideas of wizarding beverages that are shared at Hog’s Head inside The Three Broomsticks.
