For Halloween we had a Hogwart’s Feast. Most of my dishes were inspired by Hogwart’s professors from the Harry Potter series.
I sent the kids upstairs while I made all the fixins so they could come down and see it all ready at once. I set our table with a black tablecloth, black plates, and black goblets for our butterbeer. Our glowing jack-o-lanterns became our table centerpiece. I used the adjacent counter for the spread of food, each dish with it’s own little sign describing the dish. The lights were low, the candles were lit, and the Harry Potter music was sounding.
Our Hogwart’s Feast Menu
- Hogwart’s Hotwitches (hot roast beef and cheddar sandwiches)
- Caramel Apple Bites (apple bites made with a melon baller and then dipped in caramel…I stick a toothpick in so it can be picked up easily)
- Pumpkin Potatoes (orange colored mashed potatoes)
- McGonagall’s Mummies (little smoky pig in a blankets with mummy-style strips of bread)
- Snape’s Jelly Slugs (jell-o with gummy worms)
- Hagrid’s Bat Wings (bbq chicken wings)
- Chocolate wands (pretzel rods dipped in chocolate and sprinkles, then put in little BOO bags)
- Polyjuice Potion (crystal lite with ice cubes that had gummy body parts frozen inside of them)
- Butterbeer served in a cauldron (slightly warmed root beer infused with butterscotch syrup)
- And of course I also made treat bags from Honeydukes. This was the kids’ prize after the treasure hunt. They were filled with Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans and Chocolate Frogs (gummy frogs dipped in milk chocolate). The chocolate frogs were everyone’s favorite!
A tasty, fun, memorable feast, and a perfect way to celebrate some of our very favorite books! It was a brilliant Hogwart’s Feast!
