You don't need a holiday or party to make a delicious recipe inspired by the magical world of Harry Potter, but it certainly doesn't hurt. And if any holiday is worthy of the Potterverse, it would be Halloween. This year let's forget the pumpkins and ghost cookies, set aside our opinions on candy corn, and make something Harry Potter would've loved to eat. From Butterbeer hot chocolate to cake pops that look like the Golden Snitch, there's something for everyone to love.

11. Candy-Coated Roach Control from Heather Bailey

Yes, the idea of eating "roach" popcorn is very off-putting, but let me try to convince you. The "roaches" in this popcorn ball are actually just candied pecans. Doesn't that sound good?

These cookies are pretty simple to make. What makes them special is the Butterbeer sauce, which is basically butterscotch.
