Butter beer and cauldron cakes: Food bloggers take on Harry Potter Add to ...

Treacle tarts, licorice wands and butter beer... Is the whimsical onscreen food distracting you from the story line of the new Harry Potter film?

Next to the magical treats that Harry Potter and his pals consume in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I, your own Muggle movie theatre popcorn might seems a little bland.

Luckily, there's no shortage of food blogs and web sites that offer recipes inspired by J.K. Rowling's boy wizard series.

The blog Three Baking Sheets to the Wind shows you how to make pumpkin pasties, the flaky pies found on the Hogwarts Express.

Mugglenet.com takes a crack at replicating the Butter Beer , served at The Three Broomsticks.

The Slash Food site has instructions on how to make Treacle fudge and Pumpkin Juice, a favourite snack among the pupils of Hogwarts.

Meanwhile, The Stir web site offers tips like how to make Cauldron Cakes, the kind sold at Honeydukes. (Simply hollow out chocolate muffins and fill with mousse.)

And for all other magical food, the blog Harry Potter Recipes is dedicated entirely to replicating goodies that appear in the series, like Peppermint Toads and Ton Tongue Toffee.

We draw the line at ear wax-flavoured candy, though.

What are your favourite foodie films?
