1 T Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Place the melted butterscotch into a pastry bag that has been fitted with a small round tip. Squeeze the bag to let the butterscotch slide out onto the baking sheet. Maneuver the tip to make lightning bolt designs. These will be used as an accent for the warm butterbeer when serving it to your guests! It is the sign of the "Boy Who Lived."
 

Harry Potter Butterbeer Served Warm Lightning Bolt

 
While the lightning bolts are setting up, place a saucepan onto the stove. Turn the heat to medium. Place the milk, sweetened condensed milk, and butterscotch chips into the pot. Stir them constantly for about 10 minutes. The milk mixture should get hot and steamy.

When the contents are hot, but not boiling, add the cream soda and butter extract. It will foam up and get bubbly when you pour in the soda. Remove from heat.
