Harry Potter Butterbeer Cookies

I have a decent list of movies that I’m completely obsessed with: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Home Alone 1 & 2, Elf, Father of the Bride 1 & 2, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and of course ALL Harry Potter movies! I love Harry Potter so much, that my work family threw me a Harry Potter-themed wedding shower, and yes, I do own the Lost Diadem of Ravenclaw and sometimes I wear it around the house. I never miss a marathon (thank you FreeForm)… being kind of a home-body, I just love to snuggle up on my cozy couch with a fire, candles & HARRY POTTER! This may be my first Harry Potter-themed post, but I promise you it won’t be my last 😉

SO, it’s my co-workers birthday tomorrow, and she happens to be just as obsessed with Harry Potter as I am. She put so many little creative nuances into my Harry Potter-themed wedding shower, that I knew I wanted to return the favor in the form of cookies for her birthday. That leads me to my positive intention for baking this – I’m grateful for the baked goods and creative decor that she put into my themed wedding shower, so I want to bake her some tasty, fun Butterbeer Cookies filled with happy-birthday wishes & Harry Potter spirit!

I adapted a recipe I found for this on the ever-so-helpful Pinterest by “Mrs. D” at “Just a Pinch“.



  • 1 box of butter cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of oil or substitute (I prefer butter or butter-flavored margarine which is what I used)
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup of english toffee bits
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbs vanilla paste
  • 2 tbs French Vanilla coffee creamer

Let’s get started!

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  2. Add the first 7 ingredients together in a bowl and whisk by hand until ingredients are incorporated and smooth.
  3. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to drop cookies onto your cookie sheet.fullsizerender-4
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  7. While cooling, make your icing drizzle by adding the powdered sugar, vanilla paste and coffee creamer; then whisk together until incorporated.
  8. Use a spoon to drizzle icing over the cookies once they’re cool to touch.fullsizerender-8fullsizerender-7
