Drink Up! Deathly Hallows Hot Chocolate

Okay — not trying to overreact here or anything, but WE GET A NEW FANTASTIC BEASTS MOVIE THIS MONTH! I am counting down the days until we learn what questions are answered in the Crimes of Grindelwald… and what new mysteries may be presented.

If you’re asking yourself how to prepare for The Crimes of Grindelwald, I’ve got you covered.

First things first — plan a movie night and watch Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (feel free to watch it more than once!) to refresh your memory on the new witches and wizards we met in 2016.

Second — read the Tale of the Three Brothers to study the lore of the Deathly Hallows.

Third — re-read some key chapters from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows that dive into Dumbledore and Grindelwald’s relationship, particularly Chapter 18: The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore, Chapter 24: The Wandmaker, Chapter 28: The Missing Mirror, and Chapter 35: King’s Cross.

Now that you’ve got your assignment, it’s time to get cozy for study time. And what better way to read and watch parts of our favorite fandom than with a cup of hot chocolate — with deathly hallows marshmallows, of course!

Deathly Hallows Hot Chocolate // A Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Recipe

What You Need:

Let me be perfectly honest, this is probably the easiest Harry Potter recipe ever!

First, prep your Dealthy Hallows marshmallows. I chose to use large marshmallows, but if you’d like extra drawing space, pick up a bag of square marshmallows.

Using a black edible marker, you can find this with the cake decorating supplies in your grocery or craft store, carefully draw a circle, aka the resurrection stone, in the middle of your marshmallow. Next, draw a triangle, aka the invisibility cloak, around the outside of the circle. Finally, draw a straight line, the Elder Wand, to separate the triangle in two equal halves.

Warm up a mug of your favorite hot cocoa, garnish with your favorite toppings, including your Deathly Hallows marshmallows, and enjoy!

If you want that extra chocolate touch, a chocolate Elder Wand can make the perfect drink stirrer… or snack.

“Bed rest and perhaps a large, steaming mug of hot chocolate. I always find that cheers me up.”

Well said, Dumbledore, well said. I think I’ll do just that until I can watch Crimes of Grindelwald!

      Wooo! I’m not mad at that! Once a Potterhead, always a Potterhead.

    I wasn’t super convinced Jude Law could be Dumbledore, but I am most certainly wrong.

    Edible markers are so much fun to play with! I love using them to draw on marshmallows as hot chocolates are an almost nightly thing in my household, so drawing a little image on each marshmallow is a fun way to add a little whimsy πŸ˜‹

      This was the first time I’ve used them, but they made things so much easier! I’m going to have to do the same – I have been on a big hot chocolate kick!

    This is so creative!! I’ve never used edible markers before!

      They were so much easier to use than other options I considered, like icing! Keep it in mind for your holiday recipes! πŸ™‚

    This is the cutest idea! I’ve never seen any of the HP movies and have only read two of the books so far (slowly working my way through) but would love to drink some of this with either. πŸ™‚

      You’ve got an amazing adventure ahead of you! Somedays I wish I could re-read the series with a fresh memory. SO GOOD!

    Oh my gosh these are SO cute! I am soo excited that Fantastic Beasts comes out so soon!

      They’re incredibly easy — you’ll have to try them this season! And same – can’t believe it’s almost time to see it!

    I had no idea they made edible markers haha I guess it makes sense now that I think about it, but I honestly didn’t actually know they were a thing until this post. This is such a cute idea!! We’re so excited to see The Crimes of Grindelwald!

      I just discovered them too! I definitely think they could be handy for detailed decorating of holiday cookies.

    So simple but I love it. It has officially become hot chocolate season in my home so could easily do this before seeing the film!

      Same! I have a mug of hot chocolate on most nights! And marshmallows — with geeky designs — are a must.
