Baking for the Battle of Hogwarts: Graveyard Brownies

Why is today of all days the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts? Because J.K. Rowling says so.

Earlier today she tweeted:


I decided that I really wanted brownies, and it’s pretty easy to turn a pan of brownies into a graveyard. The dulce de leche, walnuts and chocolate chips on top were just for the sake of deliciousness, although they also look a bit like a roughed up battle landscape.


There were six big deaths during the battle (Fred Weasley, Remus Lupin, Tonks, Lavender Brown, Snape, and Colin Creevey) but plenty of others died in skirmishes and attacks before the big battle, and how can you not honor Dobby?


To quote David Tennant’s Doctor, “Oh, I cried.”

And just how big a fan are you? Take today’s Harry Potter quiz from the Mirror to find out!
