For wizards and muggles alike, here are deliciously whimsical Harry Potter foods to amaze and delight. They’re perfect to whip up for your next Harry Potter movie night or Halloween party!
One of the most magical parts of the beloved Harry Potter story is the food. It conjures up a mood every time!
A cozy Butterbeer at The Three Broomsticks. Hagrid’s tooth-chipping Rock Cakes. One of Mrs. Weasley’s famous family dinners, ending with Harry’s favorite Treacle Tart. Disgustingly Maggoty Haggis served at Nearly Headless Nick’s Deathday party. A full English breakfast at Hogwarts, including foods like sausages and fried eggs. And of course tons of sweets from Honeydukes and off the tea trolley on the Hogwarts Express, such as Chocolate Frogs, Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, and Pumpkin Pasties.
Thanks to the brilliance of J.K. Rowling, some of the Harry Potter foods are unique and quirky while others are classic and homey. They truly enhanced the fantastical story. And they’re a great way to bring the magical world of Harry Potter right into your own home!

Which Harry Potter recipe will you try first?
Perhaps the most iconic Harry Potter food (ahem, drink) is Butterbeer! It was sold in Hogsmeade at The Three Broomsticks and The Hog’s Head. Additionally, it was available in Diagon Alley at The Leaky Cauldron.
You can buy Butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ at Universal Studios. And of course you can order it off the secret menu at Starbucks. But if you fancy a Butterbeer without having to buy it, it’s easy to make at home!
The best thing about Butterbeer is that it’s not just a drink! Here you’ll find a ton of food recipes featuring a Butterbeer flavor profile.
