We’ve made Butterbeer and butterbeer ice cream. But we hadn’t yet combined Butterbeer with my favourite food– popcorn. It’s ‘the’ movie food, so no Harry Potter movie night is complete without a bowl of this butterbeer caramelised popcorn.

Microwave on high for approximately 2 minutes. Pour into a large glass bowl. Preheat oven to 130oC. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
