Break out the butterbeer because we are making Maple Butterbeer Cookies perfect for any witch or wizard.
Butterbeer is a favorite in my world because, butterscotch! So good! Just in time for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, these cookies are the perfect treat for any Harry Potter themed parties. A delicious twist on a classic cookie.
I love that the Wizarding World is expanding past Harry Potter to introduce new characters and expanding on other characters backstories. Nagini makes an appearance in the upcoming film, and her story is going to be fascinating. The aspect of seeing Dumbledore’s past is also one that I am looking forward to seeing.
Did you know that Newt Scamander is a Hufflepuff? So was Cedric Diggory (swoon).
