Harry Potter 5 days of WITCH crafts--still catching up

You saw my accessory the other day (portable swamp), and an edible (Hagrid's Hot & Yummy ButterBeer)...I've edited the recipe slightly--there was a typo.

I am not making a creature
so instead here are 2 more edibles
both recipes from "The Leaky Cauldron"


by Chelikins

Preparation Time

30 minutes


hard boiled eggs
food coloring


You can color hardboiled eggs and say they are Dragon Eggs! If you crack the shells a bit before coloring, you will end up with colored crack lines on the hard boiled egg for an even stranger look.

(Note: I used fresh eggs--only a week old or less from the chickens...and if you have ever had fresh eggs, you know when you hard boil them, a lot of the time you can not peel them, without losing part of the egg.  if you didn't know that , now you do...did you also know the eggs in the super market can be up to 6 months old?  that is because eggs have a longish shelf life.  You can keep eggs un-refrigerated for about 30 days. ADDITIONALLY, I made Purple food color by mixing red and blue)

Preparation Time

75 minutes


3 – 4


3/4 cup boiling water
1 (3 ounces) package jello berry blue gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
Ice cubes
Gummy worms (candy usually sold in bulk or bags)


Stir boiling water into gelatin in a medium bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Mix cold water and ice to make 1 1/4 cups.
Add to gelatin, stirring until slightly thickened.
Remove any remaining ice.
Can refrigerate if it still seems thin to thicken slightly.
Pour gelatin into clear plastic cups.
Suspend gummy fish in gelatin.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.


(note...I wanted sugar free jello, since the gummy worms are NOT sugar free...hubby is a diabetic, so I had to go for LIME jello, they do not make berry blue in sugar free. Also, no kidlets in the house, so I wasn't going to buy an entire package of clear plastic cups, so they are bigger servings in my Pyrex dishes. (we are also using cool whip on ours ))

Tomorrow I will have my only wearable (very simple), 
my craft (very simple) 
and one last edible!!
