Molly Weasley Butterbeer Recipe

How to Make Molly Weasley’s Butterbeer

Ingredients Required:

  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vinegar
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 4 (12 oz) bottle cream soda


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar and butter. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture reads 240°F on a candy thermometer.
  2. Stir in salt, vinegar, and 1/4 of the heavy cream. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  3. Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
