Harry Potter Butterbeer Fudge Recipe. How NOT to make fudge learn from my mistakes!

Sharing is caring!

I tried making Harry Potter Butterbeer Fudge to give as a tasty gift this Christmas. It tasted delicious, but was NOT what the fudge recipe was supposed to be. See what happened to the recipe, and things I would do next time.

Harry Potter Butterbeer Fudge

I’ve always been a fan of the Harry Potter Butterbeer food recipes. And because I’m getting into the holiday season with Blogmas this year, I wanted to try this Harry Potter Recipe. If you enjoy learning about cooking and getting into the holiday spirit, be sure to like this post. There is plenty more fun to come.


Fudged Recipe

All the ingredients were available at the grocery store, except for the butterscotch topping. I was running short on time, and the weather was turning bad, so I decided to just grab the Caramel topping that was available at that store.

Thankfully, I already had a candy thermometer at home, a small pot, a small silicone spatula, parchment paper, and a glass dish to put the fudge in.

Sticky Situation

I poured the can of caramel in and heated the stove to med-high heat, stirring constantly. Meanwhile, I used the candy thermometer to get the temp up to 237° Fahrenheit. It was extremely hot and bubbly. I added the marshmallow fluff, and was stirring constantly at that point, but I didn’t have the white chocolate chips ready.

Luckily, my husband was available to help out. He grabbed the bag, but it was NOT OPENING. For some reason, the package was not made for easy opening. Meanwhile, the fudge was starting to turn into taffy and my arm was getting tired.

Once we got the chocolate chips in, I stirred and melted into the taffy mixture, and then poured it into the parchment lined glass pan.

Hot Mistake

After layer one was done, it was time to move on to layer two. The second layer of the Harry Potter Butterbeer Fudge is smaller and just as tasty. Luckily, I learned from the first batch, and measured out the chips ahead of time. BUT I did make a mistake. I didn’t use the candy thermometer to get the ingredients to temperature.

Tasty Taffy

After letting the taffy cool in the refridgerator overnight, I took a chance and cut it up. UNFORTUNATELY, it was my first time making Harry Potter Butterbeer fudge and it did not set up properly. The goo tasted good though! It tastes good as an addition to a Hot Chocolate Recipe.

Lessons Learned

Next time I make fudge I will:

  1. Measure the ingredients ahead of time
  2. Not fudge the recipe
  3. Not fudge the temperature (and keep it at temp longer)


What hygge gifts and snacks do you like to give during the holidays?

I am doing Blogmas this year! Follow along for Christmas activities and join the fun with More Lifestyle Living.
