Harry Potter will always be one of the most magical parts of our lives. The Boy Who Lived, lives on in our hearts even as the story is long over and the Hogwarts express is never to return. We summon our pensieve time and again, to relive those moments. The series continues sits pretty on our bookshelves and we do indulge in HP marathons once in a while. How about throwing a Harry Potter-themed party this time around? With easy to follow recipes, you can create some magical treats straight from Hogsmeade! What’s more, you can sort your guest into Hogwarts houses too! Here’s some help with the party menu:
Make a basic chocolate ganache by pouring boiling double cream over the chocolate of your choice (Dark, Semi sweet or milk). Keep stirring until it thickens and freeze them into frog molds readily available at the store. Make your own wizard cards if you like and watch your friends fight it out for those!
The beverage which made quite a regular appearance in the series, Butter beer can be brewed by mixing in 1 cup of cream, ½ a stick of butter, 2 tbsp. brown sugar, a pinch each of cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring to boil and serve with a huge dollop of whipped cream!
All flavored beans:
Aha! All flavored beans! Go crazy with this one! Use the juice of pumpkins, carrots, bitter gourd, raspberries, onions, garlic, ginger, the more the merrier! Don’t divulge the flavours and make jelly beans by using gelatin sheets and letting them set in the refrigerator. Cut them into little beans or hearts and don’t forget to catch the reactions on camera!
Make a glassful of this frothy brew by mixing in equal parts of raw mango juice and soda. Add sugar according to taste and just a tiny hint of green food color. There, your Polyjuice potion can add quite a dash of drama to the party!
Treat chocolate wafer sticks like cannoli and fill them up with whipped cream. Coat the end with rainbow sparklers and your mini wands are good to stun!
Blimey! Who wouldn’t like to be invited for your party, you dear dear Potterhead! Do you have a magical recipe to share? Tell us in the comment below!
