Creamy Butterbeer Fudge

It only seemed fitting that we combine our own take on Butterbeer with a classic fudge, don’t you think? Who doesn’t love a creamy, sticky, buttery, sweet and delicious dessert, only this time made with ingredients that can be said to hail from the halls of Hogwarts? Most of us are us are obsessed with fudge in all its many variations and it gives us the perfect platform to create our smooth and creamy, decadent dessert. No one can deny that chocolate is a beautiful thing, but we really love the butterscotch twist with a hint of rum that brings new flavor, as well as a nostalgic taffy-like texture, to this classic treat – so delicious!
