What's so special about Tuesdays?

10:43 AM

Not much around our household. Which is why we MADE it special by Hogwart-ifying our dinner. With Butterbeer. I've never been to the wizarding world in FL, but I did dedicate a fair amount of time to researching recipes from those who tasted the J.K. Rowling-approved Butterbeer they serve there, and then I tweaked it based on what I think Chris would like. So here's how I made it:

What ya need: Good quality cream soda, butterscotch topping, heavy whipping cream, a wand, and a man who'll wanna snog ya if you make this for him.

I'm just kidding about the last two. But maybe not.

1. Heat about 3 tablespoons of butterscotch ice cream topping over the stove (we don't have a microwave, and this felt more legit anyway.)
2. Begin to whip the cream. I used our kitchenaid and I actually didn't have that much left so I only whipped about 1/4 of a cup--I figured this would be okay as there are only two of us and I was planning to serve them out of wine glasses. (Just a day in the life, makin' Hogwarts classy.) (Kidding-we don't have cool beer mugs.)
3. While whipping, I added about a tablespoon of the butterscotch topping into the whipping cream, and the key was to stop whipping just before it turns to whip cream. (Just frothy enough to stay at the top of the glass.)
4. Remove butterscotch from heat just before pouring into bottom of the wine glass.
5. Immediately pour (SLOWLY) the cream soda (good quality is the way to go..) into the glass so that it would mix well with the butterscotch.
6. Pour the frothy-butterscotch-goodness on top.
7. Try not to inhale the thing in less than a minute like I did. Furthermore-try not to drink a gallon in one sitting. It's SO good.
8. Ideally, we would have put way more froth on top than what you'll see in the picture..(dang it-low butterbeer supplies.)



Tuesday dinner just got way more awesome. Eventually, when we get to go to HP world, I'll be pumped to try it and see how close it is. Side note-if you read this whole thing and have never heard of butterbeer, get your muggle butt off the computer and start reading Harry Potter.
