Our Hogwart’s Feast

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 lit up our table as the centerpiece.  I used the adjacent counter for the spread of food, each dish with it’s own little sign describing the dish.  I turned the lights down low, lit the candles, and started up the Harry Potter music for ambience.

  • Hogwart’s Hotwitches (hot roast beef and cheddar sandwiches)
  • Caramel Apple Bites (I created apple bites with a melon baller and then dipped them in caramel…I stuck a toothpick in so we could pick them up easily and without a big mess.)
  • 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)

Boo-Treat-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.  I filled them 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!

  1. Karen, this is quite possibly the coolest thing ever!:o) I especially like the polyjuice potion, what a cool idea! Actually, it is all a very, very cool idea, and it looks like you had a Hogwartalicious time!
