"A moment later the puddings appeared... trifle"

Trifle is a classic dinner dessert but I wanted to do something extra special when creating this Wizarding World version!


This butterbeer trifle recipe is incredibly easy to make. Conjured up from three distinct layers, I'll show you how to make a Ravenclaw blue jelly, butterbeer caramel custard before topping with whipped cream and a range of caramel based toppings!


Harry Potter Butterbeer Trifle Recipe Ingredients:

(serves 4-6)


For the jelly layer

  • 1 packet jelly (I've used blue for Ravenclaw but you can use any you like)

  • 500ml water

  • Stroopwafels

For the Butterbeer Custard

  • 2 tbsp custard powder

  • 2 tbsp sugar

  • 1 pint (568ml) milk

  • 1 tsp butterscotch flavouring

For the cream

  • 300ml double cream

  • 1 tbsp icing sugar

  • 1/4 tsp vanilla

To decorate

  • Golden toffee pieces

  • Dark chocolate

  • Stroopwafels

Ravenclaw Butterbeer Trifle Recipe Method:

  1. To begin you want to prepare your jelly by pouring the jelly mixture into a jug. Add just enough boiling water to dissolve it and then top up to 500ml with cold water. Place your caramel Stroopwafels into the bottom on your glasses and then evenly cover with the jelly. Place in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour.

  2. While the jelly is setting make the custard by warming the milk in a saucepan. Add the custard powder and sugar into a bowl and then use a few tablespoons of milk to work into a paste. Whisk this into the rest of the milk along with the butterscotch extract and then return to the heat, stirring continuously for 5 minutes until thickened. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

  3. Once the jelly has set and the custard is cool, spoon an even layer over the top of the jelly and return to the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

  4. Prepare the cream by whisking together the double cream, icing sugar and vanilla until it forms soft peaks. Transfer into a piping back and swirl over the top of the custard.

  5. Decorate the top using assorted caramel flavoured treats - I've gone for more Stroopwafels, chocolate shavings and golden candy pieces.

Quick! Tuck in before these disappear!
