First introduction into chocolate for Harry after a life with the Dursleys. Harry's first birthday cake was chocolate. + Hagrid gave him a chocolate/raspberry ice cream at Fortescue's. ALSO CHOCOLATE FROGS EVERYWHERE. They are big plot point too! a sturdy introduction: 8/10
chamber of secrets:
Hermione savagely uses chocolate cake to trick Crabbe and Goyle. But, most importantly, if Dumbledore wasn't getting hot chocolate Colin Creevey would have probably died. proving again, chocolate saves lives. A steaming book for hot chocolate with 3 mentions. decent: 5/10
prisoner of azkaban:
absolute PEAK. A whooping 27 references. A chocolate reference every 9 pages! Honeydukes is introduced!!! "Hundreds of different kinds of chocolate in neat rows", Slabs and bars galore! + chocolate is canonly used as a remedy for sadness!! chocolate queen™, remus Lupin helps the cause with his generous handing out of chocolate. Also, Pomfrey even provided a boulder sized block, complete with a hammer to collect chunks, ingenious. EVEN THE MINISTER FOR MAGIC insisted on Harry having chocolate! -5 points because Harry says he's sick of chocolate ate the end. Yet, still a solid 11/10
goblet of fire:
The Fat Lady makes an excellent choice by getting drunk off chocolate liqueurs, a+ example of combining chocolate and alcohol. Ron got some chocolate from Hagrid for having a sneaky lil niffler... the BIGGEST disappointment is Molly Weasley sending Hermione a tiny chocolate egg instead of a dragon sized one like harry and ron because of a Rita Skeeter™ rumour she's with Krum and Harry?? like wtff a grown ass woman almost made a child cry because of their passive aggressive chocolate giving 1/10
order of the phoenix:
Hermione gave two boxes of chocolate for Harry's birthday, but teenage angst™ harry throws them out. Poor form m8. Also, he has a weird dream about Cedric, Cho and chocolate frogs?? Why bro. Additionally, Harry and Ginny have a romantical moment as she gives him chocolate... Before Madam Pince screams "CHOCOLATE IN THE LIBRARY- OUT- OUT!" Classic choco madness! Overall, a wild ride on the chocolate train. maybe too wild. im going with a 6/10
Romilda Vane tried to spike Harry through chocolate cauldrons -30 points... Furthermore, Tom Riddle kills Hepzibah Smith with hot cocoa and uses that death to make a horcrux. An absolute shocker! Chocolate used to make Voldemort immortal!!! and to murder!!! improper use of a sacred food: -282939399/10
Wow, disappointing. One chocolate card wrapper on the floor, a chocolate card and french chocolate from the Delacours. 3 mentions in 197,651 words. Disgraceful. I reckon there's correlation between how happy a story is and the amount of chocolate references. conclusively: appalling 0.015/10
bonus fantastic beasts:
"But I made 'em cocoa?". excellent start, promising: 7/10
adrenaline rushes, climbing to a rooftop to see the sunrise, bruised knees, sneaking out at nightime, hot chocolate, sitting in front of a fireplace, running through corridors, shopping cart races,
midday sun, unstoppable laughter
passing notes to friends during classes, organising shelves, flower crowns, first warm spring day, fierce protectiveness, large bags of candy,
group chats, countless hours of practising one’s skills, holding on tight, reminiscing old times
intense debates, muffled speech inside a library, pointing out constellations, writing notes on books, a glass of good wine, pale morning sky, ink on fingertips, learning multiple languages, staying up all night, unreadable handwriting
marble floors, the sound of running water, lists of good schools in big cities, motivational speeches, winter nights, rooms lit with candles, always having a plan, rarely shared secrets, smirking at the people you hate, expensive chocolate
Ingredients: -1/3 cup sugar, plus powdered sugar for dusting -5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped -3 large egg yolks at room temperature -6 large egg whites -Pinch salt
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees (Fahrenheit). Generously butter a souffle dish and sprinkle with sugar, tapping out excess.
2. Melt chocolate in a metal bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove bowl from heat and stir in yolks (the batter will stiffen).
3. Beat whites with a pinch of salt in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until forming soft peaks. Add 1/3 cup sugar, a little at a time, continuing to beat at medium speed, then beat at a high speed until forming stiff peaks. Stir about 1 cup of the whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten, then add mixture to the remaining whites, folding gently and thoroughly.
4. Spoon into souffle dish and run the end of your thumb around the inside edge of the souffle dish (this will remove any sugar particles on the inner edge, allowing the souffle to rise evenly). Bake in middle of oven until puffed and crusted on top, but still giggly in the center, 24 to 30 minutes. Serve immediately, with a light dusting of powdered sugar.
There’s no denying the power that chocolate has in our day-to-day lives. At work, my coworkers have often laughed as I’d turn down candy, but happily accept chocolate with the reminder that “chocolate is not candy, it is its own food group for which we have a separate stomach: the chocolate stomach.” From ice cream to cakes to souffles, just about anything sweet that can be flavored has a variant which includes chocolate, and it’s used in nearly every holiday celebration throughout the year in addition to its frequent appearance in romantic occasions and post-romantic occasions.
Kitchen witchcraft often conjures the image of a witch with a rolling pin, baking pies and cakes. So it should come as no surprise that chocolate - an ingredient frequently used in baking - would have its own place in such delectable witchery. And how could it not? There’s no denying the fact that chocolate can help ease depression and sadness, and that it can brighten anyone who isn’t allergic to it (and in the media, look no further than Harry Potter, in which chocolate is the immediate cure after having a run-in with a dementor - the manifestation of true depression).
Chocolate, of course, doesn’t immediately come as that creamy sweet bar that we can buy at the front of the grocery store or in a gas station. In its purest form, it is the cacao bean. Historically, cacao beans were used as currency in Central and South America in addition to being made into a frothy beverage. The fruit of the cacao tree was also consumed frequently, and when the Spanish arrived, the tree was being cultivated for its fruit and seeds.
Chocolate became a luxury item in Europe afterward, and its popularity (unsurprisingly) grew quite quickly. Today, most cacao is cultivated in West Africa for worldwide consumption.
In terms of magic, cocoa is easily linked to prosperity and luxury. Its use as money in Central and South America adds to this, and its popularity among the nobility both in the Americas and in Europe further reinforces this notion. But I would argue that chocolate goes beyond prosperity and money magic. Of course, there are sweetening spells, in which chocolate can easily be incorporated, as well as love and lust magic which can most definitely involve chocolate. I would say that chocolate can be used in health and healing magic.
There is, of course, the fact that dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants, but I’m specifically referring to spells pertaining to mental health. It’s excellent for calming nerves for those suffering from anxiety, lifting the mood for those suffering from depression (keep in mind that depression isn’t just feeling sad… it’s losing all feeling, to the point where you just can’t feel emotion), and bringing joy to those who need it. Even when feeling physically sick, a cup of hot cocoa can help bring a bit more life to someone who is unwell. (When I had the flu last week, what was my hot beverage request made of my boyfriend? Hot chocolate!)
Incorporating chocolate into magic is fairly easy. Add it to foods such as baked goods and candy, or even to some more savory foods (chocolate goes particularly well with chili’s and pairs excellently with red wines). As an offering to deities, chocolate works well for deities linked with love or strong emotion or wealth.
Play around with ways in which to incorporate chocolate. It doesn’t have to be the candy bar, either. In a spell for self love, consider using cocoa powder as an ingredient. In sweetening spells, powdered hot chocolate can be incorporated easily!
To to cap it all off, chocolate is a food whose origins are linked to royalty, money, and prosperity. It’s grown to become a food linked with love and romance, but can also be very helpful in spells for mental health. Consider different ways in which chocolate impacts your life, and see where it’s magic can take you!
Since October is the month of witchcraft and wizardry, I just put these Harry Potter flash sheets up on my Etsy! Limited to just 40, these will go fast!! Grab one at https://www.etsy.com/shop/davisriderprints ⚡️🔮
Unlike all Fowl men before him (including Myles), he is
blonde, and unlike all Fowl men before him, he isn’t scheming or inventive. He
shows no inclination towards any academic or scientific pursuits whatsoever,
has excellent motor coordination skills and believes that panacea exists in the
form of chocolate and mac and cheese.
He also likes zucchini.
One particularly family-filled evening, Mother decides that
she’ll put her matronly talents to use and cooks eggplant and zucchini parmesan
with pasta to boot. While he enjoys the latter and tolerates the eggplant, the
zucchini makes his lips curl in distaste and a polite effort to gulp the weird
vegetable down in order to not disappoint his mother, but enough is enough.
His father, Mother and Beckett all seem to enjoying the dish
– the latter in particular is showing his appreciation for the cucumber. Myles
wants to audibly damn the English for cultivation and breeding of this abomination
when he hears a voice mumble beside him.
“This is why the Irish despise the English.”
He looks up at Artemis, and his older brother has a small
smile on his face when he notices the matching piles of green on their plates.
Myles grins, and Artemis raises his eyebrows a little as he slips in his hand
what feels like a pack of cookies. Of course he can’t eat it here, so he slips
into his brother’s study later that night, and they discuss the War of Roses
and Harry Potter over chocolate chip cookies, hands covered in sticky chocolate
and faces covered in grins.
Zucchinis aren’t so bad when you have someone to hate them
Request:@dracomayfoyyyybabbey - “Hey, I was wondering if you could do Draco as a dad and the reader as a mum an have scorpiusand make it all cute an fluffy”
A/N: It’s short because I still have to explore Draco Malfoy as a father and his relationship with Scorpius + I didn’t have much time over the week to write because finals :( This also has a very autumny/coldish vibe to it because it was Thanksgiving a few days ago! Hope you like it :))))
leaves on a tree fell silently and slowly as autumn finally finished to settle
in, decorating the green grass in orange, yellow and brown as the weather began
getting colder. Inside a big mansion, glancing through a big picture window
stood a woman in her late twenties, pressing a hot cup of chocolate against her
pink lips. As she took a sip, the sweet scent traveled its way up to her nose
noticed that she had finished her cup, and being the chocolate lover she was,
she went to the kettle and poured herself some more, accidentally spilling a
few drops on the grey marble countertop. Just as she raised her hand that was
holding the mug to take a sip, she heard a distant, muffled noise coming from
the room next to the kitchen.
listened closely, realizing that it was someone talking alone, until another voice
piped in the conversation. Walking slowly, she glanced around the door, gaining
a full view of the large living room that the Malfoy Manor owned. There sat two
males with the same pale skin and platinum blond hair, the only difference
being their ages. (Y/N) managed to distinguish a few toys tossed around the
expensive carpet, ignored by the little owner, who instead, was smiling at
something above him.
entered the room quietly, she saw what Scorpius Malfoy was looking at: his
father, Draco, was twirling his wand upwards, conjuring several sparks that
took the shape of different animals each time. She watched in amusement as a
yellowish sparkle drifted from the tip of the wand, rising high until it took
the shape of a lion, which emitted a low roar before vanishing. (Y/N) couldn’t
help but laugh at such sight, which caused both boys to look at her.
Scorpius greeted happily, standing up and rushing towards her to grab her hand “Look
at dad! Look what he’s doing!”
smiled warmly and stretched his arm to his side in an inviting manner “Come
join us, love.”
Not being able to resist Scorpius’ tugging on
her hand, (Y/N) sat next to Draco as their eight year old son sat in front of
them, looking expectantly at the wand.
Placing his arm around (Y/N)’s waist, Draco once again twirled his wand
and a red light escaped the end, taking the shape of a big phoenix, which stayed
and soared around the living room gracefully as the Malfoys proceeded to play
Exploding Snap and drink hot chocolate.
This is literally just a drabble series of
domestic fluff full of headcanons haha. Each drabble can be read as a

Our Life Together 1
While Damen and his husband were alike in some
ways, they were also opposite in others.
For example, Laurent loved sugary foods and
drinks. It was for this reason that Damen found himself often coming home to
the smell of cakes, brownies, or cookies. Laurent also liked to visit his
favorite bakery first thing in the morning, on some days, and get donuts to
have with his sugar…or coffee…or sugar with some coffee and milk added to it.
Damen, on the other hand, preferred simple
breakfasts like eggs with maybe some fruit on the side. Fruit was actually the
sweetest thing he liked to eat. He preferred his coffee black and didn’t mix
anything in with his tea, his favorite being green tea. He liked the bitterness
When it came to flavor, Damen preferred bitter or
spicy, while Laurent preferred sour or sweet. This made co-cooking their meals
together somewhat difficult at times, but after a year of living together they
were starting to get the hang of it. Making sure there was something being made
to suit both of their taste palates.
