It's Too Yummy Tuesday!
On select Tuesdays I share delicious recipes either inspired by my books or that are just plain delicious!
Okay, so today's recipe is inspired by books, just not my own! Butter beer is a Harry Potter staple that is highly delicious, rich, and SO not on my diet that it isn't funny! But since I'm in a celebratory mood this week (we're moving to a townhouse), I thought I'd share a recipe we make once or twice a year for very special occasions.
This is not quite as good as the butter beer sold at Harry Potter's Wizarding World in Florida, or so I'm told, but for those of us too far away to nip in for a mug, this is a fast and easy alternative.
8 oz cream soda
½ cup butterscotch ice cream syrup/topping
½ tablespoon butter or margarine
Divide butterscotch and butter in half and pour each into bottom of a large, microwave-safe mug or glass (enough to hold 16 oz, as this will bubble up). Microwave 60-90 seconds until butter is melted and syrup bubbles. Stir well. Let cool briefly before slowly pouring half the soda into each glass. This will foam up quite a bit, so go easy. Serve immediately and enjoy warm!
