One of the fun things about eating at popular chains is that a number of times the restaurant will have secret menu items. Sometimes these are official from the restaurant, but other times they are just items that become so popular from one person ordering them that soon all employees know how to make it. That may soon be the case with a special Dairy Queen Blizzard recipe that one user shared on TikTok.

Fans of the Harry Potter series will know that one of the most popular drinks in both the books and movies is something called Butterbeer. Butterbeer was so popular, in fact, that when Universal opened its Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Orlando Resort, and Universal Studios Japan, they made sure that Guests would be able to purchase their very own Butterbeer. They also offer Butterbeer ice cream, Butterbeer fudge, and more.

But what if you want Butterbeer and you can’t get to the theme parks?  Well, according to TikTok user DQ King (@thedairyqueenking), all you have to do is head down to your local Dairy Queen and order a Blizzard. They posted a video on TikTok of just how the classic Blizzard can be turned into a Butterbeer one.

Even though you will not see “Butterbeer Blizzard” on the menu, there is a special way to order your Blizzard, so you can get it to taste just like Butterbeer. Here are the steps Dairy Queen Guests can follow:

  1. Choose the Customized Blizzard option
  2. Order your Blizzard made with vanilla ice cream
  3. Ask them to add butterscotch syrup, vanilla syrup, and Butterfinger pieces
  4. Ask for a bunch of whipped cream on the top
  5. Enjoy your Butterbeer Blizzard!

Unfortunately, according to DQ King, not all Dairy Queens carry butterscotch syrup, so you may want to call your local Dairy Queen ahead of time to make sure they have it. DQ King also said that if you can’t get the butterscotch syrup, then caramel syrup can make a good alternative.

Butterbeer at Universal Studios is served frozen, hot, or cold. But this Blizzard Butterbeer is the perfect sweet treat that you can enjoy all year round without a theme park ticket!
