Harry Potter inspired Recipes

I am a huge fan of Harry Potter, I love the books, and am so excited for the movie.  It will be sad to see it all come to an end.  This week, I will be sharing all things Harry Potter, and to start the week off, I thought I would share these recipes I found, and one that I made.


Rosmerta's Recipes - Ton Tongue Toffee


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 8 tablespoons of butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract (or imitation)
  • 1½ cups water
  • Additionally, a candy thermometer is required


Directions:

Step 1: In a medium saucepan, mix all ingredients and melt over medium heat until sugar is completely dissolved.

Step 2: Without further stirring, boil until mixture reaches 290°F on your candy thermometer.

Step 3: Pour mixture into a greased or buttered 9"x12" pan and let cool until almost firm to the touch.

Step 4: Score surface into 2" squares with a sharp knife, but do not cut completely.

Step 5: When cool, break into pieces (this should be easier if toffee was properly scored).

Step 6: Enjoy! Makes 1¼ pounds of toffee.

Magical Wands
Ingredients:
Twizzlers
Chocolate melts
sprinkles

Melt Chocolates according to packages.  I always use Wilton's chocolate melts, they taste amazing and are easy to use.  

Dip twizzlers into chocolate and lay on wax paper,



 top with sprinkles while still warm, let cool and enjoy.   

Use whatever twizzlers you enjoy most, we love the sweet and sour ones, so I knew they would disappear. 
Not only are they pretty, they taste so good, chocolate makes everything better!  
The great things about these, is you can put them in a Ziploc bag, and carry them in to see HP7 on Friday!  

Have a Tasty Week!
