We've been hard at work celebrating the birth month of our favorite wizard, Harry himself, and the witch behind it all, J.K. Rowling. We love HPM.
So far we've...
|made "wizard's brew" with friends|
|baked Harry Pot(ter) Pies, complete|
with lightning bolt "scars"
We've watched the first three movies and read excerpts from the books each night, annnnd...
we made EXPLODING BON-BONS!!!
|melt chocolate and cream, put in|
fridge for 3 hours, roll into balls
and cover with pop rocks
put in freezer while you melt dipping chocolate, then dip the bonbons into the chocolate
and top with another sprinkle of pop rocks
The pictures don't do them justice - we couldn't stop eating them! We would have been proud of ourselves for just making them, but the fact that they were delicious made it even better. It was so cool that the inside chocolate was a different texture than the outside...we felt so gourmet! Here's the recipe if anyone is interested. (Which you should be, because it was a very fun treat!)
We have lots more planned for the month, so stay tuned : )
