Butterscotch Cake Mix Cookies
Recently my son along with his friends had a Harry Potter Movie Marathon and these cookies were a huge hit. I was thrilled with how easy they were so it was a win/win if you ask me. I also made Birds Nest Cookies and called them Dragons Nest Cookies.
Their minds were blown and it was so fun to see the excitement on their faces with all the fun treats. Making Harry Potter recipes and treats was really fun.
I think these cookies would be fantastic as a sandwich cookie with a delicious butterscotch cream cheese frosting. Or even adding vanilla ice cream for a cookie ice cream sandwich. YUM!
Butterbeer Pudding Cookies dessert would really be fun for a family movie night.
