Yummy Butterbeer {no alcohol}

What is butterbeer you may ask? Well you would only be asking if you weren’t a huge Harry Potter fan (don’t feel bad, I had no clue). This particular recipe for butterbeer is my 13 year old’s recipe. My daugher is not any ordinary teenage girl. She enjoys experimenting in the kitchen and loves sharing her creations with her family. When she first asked if she could make it for me, I wasn’t sure what to think. Beer? She can’t drink!

Butterbeer is a Harry Potter inspired warm milk drink with a caramel and brown sugar kick. A huge hit with kids that enjoy the books and movies.

She told me she created this fabulous hot drink with a caramel kick. She made it for me this weekend and I was blown away. We sat and sipped our delicious butterbeer and discussed how to pronounce caramel and if the consistency of it dictated how it was pronounced. I think it’s “car-mull” if it’s hard and “care-a-mel” if it’s soft. Quality bonding time I tell you.

How to Make Harry Potter Butterbeer

She is letting me share this amazing recipe with you. Keep in mind that the recipe is her words not mine.

Ingredients

  • 1 Mug of Milk
  • 2 tbsp. Butter
  • 2 tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • Dash of Cinnamon

Butterbeer is a Harry Potter inspired warm milk drink with a caramel and brown sugar kick. A huge hit with kids that enjoy the books and movies.

Instructions

  1. Melt the butter and brown sugar in saucepan to make caramel.
  2. Once combined, add the milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  3. The caramel will stick but don’t freak out, it’ll un-stick.
  4. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil and bam! Butterbeer! (Mom Note: Don’t let it reach a hard boil. Not only will it curddle the milk, but it will boil over causing a big mess. Ask me how I know.)

If you are making the recipe for you and a friend (which you should), just double the recipe.

  1. We are settling in to watch Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone with mugs of Butterbeer using this recipe, with minor edits. We used rice milk, dark brown sugar, and Earth Balance spread for the butter. YUM!

  2. What an interesting recipe, I am a Harry Potter fan but had never really thought of how the butterbeer tasted. This recipe sounds just like I can imagine! Perfect!

  3. Chibi, Thank you SO much for coming up with this recipe, and for sharing it with us! My kids LOVE butterbeer… but I stopped making it for them because every recipe I’ve ever seen needs soda or some sort of caramel from a jar (and full of nasty stuff I don’t want them to eat.)
    You are brilliant to come up with such a good, easy recipe! Keep up the good work!
