Ah, yes, that wonderful time of year when the air chills and the holidays draw near. If you’re like me, you know one of the simple joys of life is walking into a house that smells of something sweet baking in the oven. Whether it be cookies, pies, cakes, or brownies, I certainly do not discriminate.
Although, if you’re not a baker (I’m more of a taste-tester myself, someone’s got to do it), there’s plenty of other goodies to make like cookie dips, homemade fudge, and, oh yes, chocolate. I love sweet things so it’s always fun to add a little something extra to the traditional holiday dessert spread.
Now, you don’t have to be a Harry Potter fan to want to make the following desserts, but I can bet you know someone who will genuinely love you for making them something literary and edible. Check out these two Harry Potter desserts that will have you stirrin’ up something wingardium deliciosa in no time!

Oh dang. One bite of this butterscotch and vanilla pie will knock you off your broom! To create a butterbeer-like effect, the marshmallow topping has a bit of a fizz to it. Throw on some golden star sprinkles and a lightning bolt-shaped pie crust and you’re in business!
What You’ll Need For The Pie: 2 store-bought pie crusts, 2 cups of heavy cream, 1 package of instant butterscotch pudding, 1 1/2 cups of cold milk, and 1/4 cup of caramel.
What You’ll Need For The Marshmallow Cream: 1 cup of heavy cream, 1/2 cup of marshmallow crème, and gold sprinkles for decoration.

This looks absolutely magical and a sure way to get your holiday dessert spread hoppin’ (sorry, couldn’t resist). The molds are incredibly detailed to make each frog look as though it’ll jump right out of your hand! The molds even come with DIY boxes so you can give party and dinner guests a treat that looks like it’s right off the trolley, dear! Although they may be lacking the 70% Croakoa (the ingredient to make them act like the real amphibians), Cinereplicas makes sure they’re as close as it gets! They are titled for having premium official Harry Potter merch!
What You’ll Need For The Chocolate Frogs: A bag of chocolate from a local chocolate supplies store or online (Dark, milk, semi-sweet, or white depending on your liking), and the Cinereplicas molds and boxes.
