Butterbeer?! Oh my Harry Potter Goodness!
So I have seen many recipes for this and tried some and they are not the best thing in the world but oh my this one is DEF worth sharing.
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tsp honey
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar, divided
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp vanilla butter nut flavoring
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- butterscotch ice cream topping
Whip cream and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar with a mixer or whisk until stiff, then set aside. Add flavoring to bottom of mug and set aside.
Add milk, honey, remaining 1/4 cup of powdered sugar, and cornstarch to a small saucepan. Heat over medium, stirring constantly.
As soon as milk mixture boils, remove from heat. Allow to cool one minute and then pour into mug. Stir well to incorporate flavoring. The flavoring will turn the drink a golden, buttery color.
Oh, and if you’re looking for an alcoholic version of this drink, this is the point where we recommend you add a couple tablespoons (to taste) of Dekuyper Butterscotch (a.k.a. Butterscotch Schnapps). The result is fantastic!
Top with whipped cream and drizzle with butterscotch topping, then serve.
Note that you won’t need all of the whipped cream, but if we had started with less, you would have a hard time whipping it. If you are making several servings at once, only whip half as much cream.
