The Wizard's Cookbook: Magical Recipes Inspired by Harry Potter, Merlin, The Wizard of Oz, and MoreDarrin and Samantha’s daughter Tabitha loves these lollipops so much she often makes them levitate toward her from the kitchen, which is a problem when Mrs. Kravitz, a neighbor, is lurking nearby.

  • Yield: 6 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 3½ oz walnuts
  • 3 large cooked beets (or 4 mediumsized beets)
  • 1 log fresh goat cheese
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • Salt and pepper
How to Make It
  1. Discreetly, so as not to attract the attention of Mrs. Kravitz, who is pretending to trim the hedge, coarsely chop the nuts.
  2. Peel the beets and cut into cylinders using your special powers, a cylindrical cookie cutter, or a cutter for modeling dough. If you own none of these, cut a wide strip of stiff card, roll it into a cylinder 2 inches in diameter, and use it to make cylinders of beet.
  3. Hollow out the cylinders using a small spoon (or a melon baller) and set aside.
  4. Mash the goat cheese, chop the walnuts, and mix together. Add a little orange juice to loosen the mixture, and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Fill the beet tubes with this mixture, then cut them into slices 1/8–¼-inch thick. Insert lollipop sticks and serve before Mrs. Kravitz falls off her ladder.
