We ask every year, but Santa still hasn’t given us a Hogwarts letter for Christmas. In our dreams, we’re at the Three Broomsticks, sipping butterbeer and daring each other to approach the Shrieking Shack. Thankfully, with a little cooking magic, we can live out some of our wildest Potterverse dreams. Here are 10 recipes that will make your holidays cozy, delicious, and (above all else) magical.
