Harry Potter Party MenuI have been researching, and brainstorming to come up with our harry potter menu for our party in about a week. I think it is finished however I may still add a few more things last minute....hopefully I didn't miss anything!? I will be trying other recipes too through out this week as we get excited for the big premiere.
honeydukes snack mix
gillyweed & crackers
bubbling potato chowder with
LICORICE WANDS: I will be going to a specialty candy store and finding all sorts of different flavors of licorice.
HONEY DUKES SNACK MIX: this will be a sweet snack mix.
honey nut chex, pretzel sticks, mnms, gummy bugs.
CHOCOLATE FROGS: I will be purchasing gummy frogs from a candy store. (I've seen them at the dollar store too!) and then I will be dipping them into dark and milk chocolate. I will be assembling chocolate frog boxes and putting them in their. The box directions should be posted soon.
GILLYWEED & CRACKERS: This will be a simple spinach and artichoke dip. I am not sure what recipe I will use yet. any suggestions would be lovely.
BUBBLING POTATO CHOWDER: I am still deciding whether or not we will be having the chowder in bread bowls but we probably will.
bake 4 potatoes at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. cook 1 lb. of ground sausage on the stove until it is brown.
then pour all of the following ingredients into a crock pot or on the stove and stir. I leave it in the crock pot on low for a few hours and then just keep it on warm.
*2 cans of cream of potato soup
*1 can of water
*chopped green onions (measure to how much onion you like)
*1 lb. of cooked ground sausage
*a few sprinkles of coarse pepper
*1/2 cup of sour cream
*minced spinach (depending on how much you like, I like quite a bit)
1 Stick of Butter
Equal amount of Gorgonzola Cheese (it can actually be any tasting cheese, but Gorgonzola is the best I think)
1/2-3/4 cup of Mayo
Directions: Mix it all together in a bowl, place one small spoon full on each slice of a baguette. Place it in a Toaster Oven or regular oven at 400 degrees until cheese is bubbling.
1 can of pumpkin pie filling, or pumpkin puree
2 cups apple juice
1 cup pineapple juice
1 teaspoon of honey
add a dash of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg
put all ingredients in blender, should be smooth.
(this will maybe serve 2 people)
8 oz. of cream soda
2-3 table spoons of butterscotch syrup
(optional scoop of ice cream)
we will just have different flavors of teas available. We will be having a divination tea table where you can read your tea cup.
