Harry Potter’s butterbeer fudge is packed full of butterscotch chips and rum flavoring. It has a crumbly texture, just how I like it! Harry Potter fans will love for you making this.
I teamed up with a few of my blogger friends to make some Harry Potter goodies. I thought I would try my hand at making some of Harry Potter’s butterbeer fudge. It came out pretty darn AMAZING. It has the flavor of butter rum and butterscotch. It’s incredibly silky too. You should probably give this recipe a try and share it with everyone. I’ve always been a huge fan of a butter rum flavor. My mama used to make rock candy every year at Christmas time and my favorite was always.. you guessed it!! butter rum.
It’s not an intense real rum flavor where you think you might be intoxicated after eating a piece. It’s a smooth, heavenly flavor. I’m probably slightly bias being that I have a real love for it, but yeah. Harry Potter knows what’s up. I would have everything butterbeer flavored if it were up to me.
I’ve been a big fan of Harry Potter from the very beginning. I’ve bought the books, watched the movies and loved Daniel Radcliffe through his rapping Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics.” Man, if you haven’t watched that, you probably should because Harry Potter can do some rapping.
