Harry Potter's Butterbeer Fudge

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 biased 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.

Harry Potter's Butterbeer Fudge

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.

  1. How long does the fudge last? Do you keep it refrigerated? I'd love to make it ahead of time for a harry potter party.

    1. The fudge lasts around a week or so, you will find it dries out after awhile. You can also freeze it if you would like. I do keep it refrigerated.

    1. Unfortunately you do need "real" sugar to help get the best consistency fudge. Truvia will not work in this case

  2. Marshmallow cream is not sold in 7.5 ounce containers. Can I use 7 ounces instead since that is how it comes?

  3. I so badly wanted this to be like the fudge we had last week at Universal, but it just wasn’t. The butterscotch flavor is a bit to overpowering for me (although still delicious).3 stars

  4. I'm so excited to try this recipe! How far in advance do you think I could make this? Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Chrissy- This fudge will actualy keep in the fridge for about a month. It is a perfect, make ahead recipe! Enjoy

    1. Once it is boiling, you do not need to stir, just boil for 5 minutes then remove from the heat. Enjoy!
