Smooth, buttery, butterscotch concoction mean to resemble a drink you'd find in Harry Potter's magical world. It's perfect for a cool, snowy or rainy day and a great alternative to hot chocolate. You could top this with some whipped cream. Substitute butterscotch schnapps for a more adult version. You can also use soy milk in place of the milk if you prefer.

This was really yummy, in fact I had my brother who is skeptical of everything try it, and even he said it wasn't bad, which is huge. But it's very rich and sweet, and calorie wise, it's certainly not something I would drink very often


This is a delicious treat for a Potter fan. However, omit the white sugar. It is far sweet enough with the honey, butterscotch and hot chocolate powder.


I made some for my grandson and it was delish.he has type 1 diabetes so he had to have only half a serving and a small spot dose to cover the carbs but saai he wants to have it again. It really is very good. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
