I realize I kind of missed the boat on the Harry Potter treats.  But Halloween is all about witches and wizards, so I thought it was time to bring it back!  That, and I have a 7 year old who is completely obsessed.  He has read 5 of the books so far, and is just waiting until we let him start book 6.  He will sit and read them for hours, he loves them so much.  I am sure you can guess what he is being for Halloween :)

So, I thought it would be fun to make him some Butterbeer this Halloween.  There are so many recipes out there, and it was way easier to make then I ever thought it would be.  I made the whipped topping from scratch, but if you were in a hurry, you could flavor some cool whip, and I am sure it would still be great!  In a matter of minutes you can be transported to The Three Broomsticks.

My 7 year absolutely loved this.  He was so excited that we made it.  Even I enjoyed my glass.  I hope you make this for all of your witches and wizards for Halloween.
