This is the treat for Harry Potter fans! Butterbeer Krispy Treats are so chewy and full of that butterbeer flavor. Perfect for a Harry Potter party!
Six years ago my twin sister threw a Harry Potter-themed party to celebrate his birthday on July 31st. We were all sorted into our different houses, played some Harry Potter trivia, and ate all kinds of Harry Potter-themed food. It was such a blast! And let’s not forget how much I love traveling to Universal Studios to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Oh heavens, that’s my happy place. Every year I share a new Harry Potter-themed recipe as part of the Happy Harry Potter series at Rae Gun Ramblings. In the past I have shared Gryffindor Popcorn and a tasty and refreshing Butterbeer Freeze. This year I’m keeping with the butterbeer theme and sharing this fun and easy recipe for Butterbeer Krispy Treats. This is the perfect treat for any Harry Potter party!
Tonight my seven year old asked me which one of the Harry Potter books is my favorite. That is such a hard question for me! I still haven’t given him an answer. I think I need to read them all again to make that final decision. It’s such a fantastic series!
I absolutely love making different kinds of krispy treats and have really loved each one that I’ve made and shared with you. This recipe is by far the best when it comes to that perfect combination of chewy and gooey. And I love that even though they’re gooey they aren’t messy at all because of that fantastic butterscotch and white chocolate combo on the bottom.
Butterbeer Krispy Treats are so perfect for a Harry Potter party. They come together quickly and you can make them the same days as your party. It’s butterbeer in a perfectly chewy treat!
