This is part II of my mini-series on Harry Potter snacks from the books brought to life (part I is on Honeydukes treats, part III features every wizard's favorite drink—butterbeer!— and part IV showcases decadent butterbeer cupcakes). When I was young, I wanted to grow up to be a writer. I also wanted to be a teacher, deep sea diver, and a cashier at McDonald's, but that's a different story. In early elementary school years, I would furiously write about anything and everything that came to mind. My stories expressed the affairs most important to a seven year old girl—monsters, dolls, and the first day of school. It would seem I had a bright future in writing, but all of this was cut short as soon as I entered fourth grade. For years, scarcely a sentence flowed from my pencil. Then Harry Potter entered my life. When I was fifteen years old, I became obsessed with the series. And the words began to flow from my pencil once more. Harry Potter inspired me to continue writing again.
