There is honestly nothing more refreshing than an ice-cold frozen Butterbeer after a hot morning spent in Diagon Alley at Universal Studios. After the ride lines get too long, we like to skip the crowds and sneak away to a quiet table at the Leaky Cauldron and indulge in this sweet and creamy frosty concoction. Inspired by this signature Harry Potter beverage, I am sharing my Butterbeer Rice Krispie Treats today in honor of the son of Gryffindor's upcoming Birthday!

Butterbeer Krispie Treat Ingredients:
- 6 Cups Rice Krispie Cereal
- 10 oz. Bag of Mini Marshmallows
- 4 TBSP. Butter
- 1/3 Cup Caramel Topping (from the ice cream section)
- 1 tsp. Butter Vanilla Extract
- 1 Cup Butterscotch Morsels
Directions to Make Butterbeer Rice Krispie Treats:
Melt 4 TBSP. Butter in a Dutch Oven over medium heat and then add one 10 oz. bag of Mini Marshmallows.
Stir marshmallows with the wooden spoon until melted and then add 1/3 Cup caramel topping and 1 tsp. butter vanilla extract. Combine well and then remove from burner.
Pour 6 Cups of Rice Krispies and 1 Cup butterscotch morsels into marshmallow mixture and stir well to coat all of the cereal. The morsels will partially melt into the warm mixture. YUM!
Pour Butterbeer Rice Krispie Treat mixture into greased 9″ x 13″ pan. Spray a large spatula with non-stick cooking spray and press mixture evenly into pan.
Cover with aluminum foil and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Once cool, remove from pan and cut with a sharp knife into 20 squares. Store in an air-tight container (if there are any left!)

Butterbeer is a popular wizarding beverage described as tasting “a little bit like less sickly butterscotch“. It was served at numerous locations in the wizarding world and had a very slight alcoholic content. Students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry would often buy it when visiting Hogsmeade. In Diagon Alley, the drink is known to be sold at the Leaky Cauldron. (source: Harry Potter Fandom website)
