Make homemade Butterbeer and put on a Harry Potter movie! This recipe is so easy that even kids can make it. It makes about 6 servings depending on how generously you pour. And just a tip, you can absolutely make this with only the first 3 ingredients if you do not want to do the fluffy topping. Kids (and adults) get a kick out of getting a foam mustache, but it’s still fun and buttery without the topping.

Ingredients:

  • a 2-liter bottle of cream soda, chilled
  • a 1-oz bottle of imitation butter flavoring (I know, it’s weird, I’m sorry)
  • 3 teaspoons of rum extract (this is half of a 1-oz bottle)
  • 1 7-oz jar of marshmallow fluff
  • 1 cup of whipping cream

Instructions:

  1. Open the 2-liter bottle of cream soda. Open the butter flavoring and pour the whole thing in. (If you are halving the recipe, that is equivalent to 1 tablespoon butter flavor for 1 liter of soda.)
  2. Measure out 2 teaspoons of rum extract and add to the soda.
  3. Put the lid back on the soda bottle and slowly rotate the bottle a few times to combine the flavorings with the soda. Of course you don’t want to shake it too vigorously and create a carbonation disaster when you open the bottle later. Gently rotate!
  4. Using an electric beater, or mixer, or food processor, combine the marshmallow fluff, whipping cream, and 1 teaspoon of rum extract. Mix it up until it’s the fluffiness you like.
  5. Pour the cream soda mixture into glasses and top with cream topping. Enjoy!
