This melt in your mouth candy wasn’t actually mentioned in a book- it was found in the Prisoner of Azkaban film. However, I couldn’t resist making a snowflake-inspired sweet for Christmas time.
It seems that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter has their own version of glacial snowflakes- a peppermint candy of sorts. I had two thoughts behind this Honeydukes sweet, but the recipe I ended up creating was a jar of snow using tapioca maltodextrin. Tapioca maltodextrin is used in molecular gastronomy, as it turns liquids with high-fat content into powder.
Like freshly fallen snow, this bottle of glacial snowflakes is powdery, but when squeezed, it kind of holds together. Pop it in your mouth and it melts, like snowflakes that have just landed on your tongue. To make it Christmasy, I’ve made the ‘snow’ taste like Christmas cookies.Print
