Harry Potter fans can never get enough of the Wizarding World. Though it may be difficult (er, or impossible) for us measly muggles to re-create spells, one thing we can bring to life is the food and drink mentioned in the books. Though it may not be as easy as shouting "accio butterbeer!", these recipes are absolutely doable for the home cook.

  1. Butterbeer: Hot or cold, butterbeer, made with real butter and beer, is a staple to take the edge off.

  1. Quidditch Players Pie: Quidditch players need a hearty meal like shepherd's pie to energize them for the match. As Fleur Delacour says, "Zis 'eavy 'ogwarts food."

  1. Cauldron Cakes: Though there are many interpretations of the mass-produced Cauldron Cakes sold on the Hogwarts Express, we're inclined to think they might be the wizard's equivalent of Hostess Cupcakes or a molten chocolate cake.

  1. Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans: The jelly bean company famous for making every kind of flavor, from chocolate to earwax. While you could always opt for Jelly Belly's rendition, there's fun in mixing your own bowl of Bertie Botts, inserting your own sneaky flavors to throw people off.

  1. Firewhisky: Ogden's Old Firewhisky and Blishen's Firewhisky are a few popular brands of the alcohol said to create a burning sensation while consumed and to inspire courage. While it's not entirely known what's in it, we imagine it to be like homemade Fireball, a combination of whiskey, cinnamon, and spicy chilis.

  1. Rock Cake: A type of fruitcake with a crunchy exterior served with tea, rock cake take on a literal meaning when Hagrid makes them. His batches are usually so overcooked that they nearly break teeth when chewed. Though this confection has earned a terrible reputation, when made correctly (and served with blue cheese as is traditional in England), rock cake may earn a place in your heart.
