As you may have noticed I’ve been out of town for 15 days and it was all so magical, so very very magical! I spent some time up at Hogwarts and had a great time. So here is what I brought back for all of you. Your very own Butterbeer Recipe! This recipe comes to us from FoxNews so it must be legit.
Start to finish: 1 hour (10 minutes active)
1 cup light or dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar
3/4 cup heavy cream, divided
Four 12-ounce bottles cream soda
In a small saucepan over medium, combine the brown sugar and water. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture reads 240 F on a candy thermometer.
Stir in the butter, salt, vinegar and 1/4 heavy cream. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the rum extract.
In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar mixture and the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Use an electric mixer to beat until just thickened, but not completely whipped, about 2 to 3 minutes.
To serve, divide the brown sugar mixture between 4 tall glasses (about 1/4 cup for each glass). Add 1/4 cup of cream soda to each glass, then stir to combine. Fill each glass nearly to the top with additional cream soda, then spoon the whipped topping over each.
