Hogwarts House Coated Peanuts Recipe | The Deathday Party | My Harry Potter Kitchen II (Recipe 38)

Hello and welcome to My Harry Potter Kitchen!


This is the the home of my Harry Potter YouTube series where I'm baking my way through the Harry Potter books, creating brand new magical recipes for every item of food and drink we find! Last week we baked a spooky Halloween cake transformed into a rotten salmon!

This week we've got another Deathday party snack inspired by the four Hogwarts houses!

You guess it, this week's recipe can also be found in Chapter Eight: 'The Deathday Party':

"Nibbles? He said sweetly, offering them a bowl of peanuts covered in fungus"

Hopefully that's not too off-putting - here's what we came up with!

Rather than serving up peanuts covered in fungus, this weak I came up with four unique coated peanut recipes inspired by our Hogwarts Houses! Which one would you choose?


Coated peanuts are a great way to take the popular party snack idea to another level. This easy coated peanut recipe will show you how to create your own peanut coatings before roasting them to seal in the flavour.

Hogwarts Coated Peanut Recipe Ingredients

(serves 8-12)


For the Gryffindor Paprika & Garlic Peanut recipe

  • 100g unsalted peanuts

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 1 garlic clove

  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika

  • pinch salt

For the Slytherin Chilli & Lime Peanut recipe

  • 100g unsalted peanuts

  • ½ lime (zest and juice)

  • ½ green chilli

  • pinch salt

For the Ravenclaw Teriyaki Peanut recipe

  • 100g unsalted peanuts

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • ½ spring onion

  • ½ inch ginger

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 1 tsp honey

  • 1 tsp soy sauce

  • pinch salt

For the Hufflepuff Sugar Coated Peanut recipe

  • 100g unsalted peanuts

  • 30g sugar

  • 1 tbsp water

  • pinch nutmeg

  • pinch salt

Coated Peanut Recipe Method:

  1. For the Gryffindor Smoked Paprika and Garlic coated peanuts, begin by heating the oil in a frying pan on a medium heat. Peel and crush the garlic and then fry for 30 seconds. Add in the paprika, stir through and continue to fry for 1 minute. Add in the peanuts, season with salt and stir until evenly coated. Transfer to a baking tray.

  2. For the Slytherin Chilli and Lime coated peanuts, zest the lime, squeeze out the juice and place both into a bowl. Remove the seeds from the chilli and thinly dice before adding into the lime. Add in the peanuts, season with salt and stir through until evenly coated. Transfer to a baking tray.

  3. For the Ravenclaw Teriyaki Glaze coated peanuts, begin by thinly slicing the spring onion, peel and grate the ginger, and peel and crush the garlic. Heat the oil in a frying pan on a medium heat and add in the onion, ginger and garlic, stirring while frying for 1-2 minutes. Deglaze the pan with the honey and soy sauce and allow to bubble for a minute. Add in the peanuts, season with salt and stir through until coated. Transfer to a baking tray.

  4. For the Hufflepuff Sugar-coated peanuts, make the simple caramel by adding the sugar and water into a saucepan on medium heat. Swirl the pan until the sugar dissolves and allow to boil for 3-5 minutes until the caramel is golden brown. Add in the peanuts, season with salt and stir until evenly coated. Transfer onto a baking tray.

  5. Roast each of the peanuts in the oven at 100c (215F) for 15-20 minutes until the flavourings have been fully absorbed by the peanuts.

  6. Allow to cool before serving, or store in an air-tight container and eat within 3-5 days.

And voila! Our final (fungus free) Deathday party recipe is complete! Are you planning a Harry Potter Halloween party this October? If so, this could be your perfect Harry Potter party snack idea!
