1.) I'd never remember it
2.) If I did, it would probably be super expensive.
So I resigned myself to probably never tasting butterbeer. And I was ok with that, because I also figured that it wouldn't live up to the "hype" I had built up in my head.
And then we went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter last summer and I tried frozen butterbeer for the first time. AND IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!
|Me, enjoying a nice, frosty butterbeer. I've been know to drink Pepsi out of the mug at home.|
So, when I came across this pin on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it.

2 tbs butter
2 tbs brown sugar
1 mug milk
1 tsp vanilla
dash of cinnamon (I used a brown sugar cinnamon mix I got from Target)
1. Melt the butter and brown sugar together to make a caramel.
2. Add milk, vanilla, cinnamon. Stir to combine.
3. Bring mixture to a boil and serve in a mug.
Now, having made this several times, I can tell you. Use regular milk. Do not use almond or coconut milk. It just doesn't taste right. You can mix with a cup of coffee (use as a creamer), but it's not as good as if you just drank it on its own.
Enjoy! Let me know what you think!
