Fantastic Beasts is such an incredible story. If you read the books or watched the films, it’s easy to get captivated. To celebrate the release of the new film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, I thought what better way than to make cookies? These super cute Fantastic Beasts Newt’s Hufflepuff Scarf Cookies are sure to be a hit with the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts lovers alike!

J.K. Rowling confirmed that Newt indeed wears a Hufflepuff scarf. So, this is a nod to all those in the Hufflepuff house. The bowtie is an homage to Newt himself. Myself, I am a Gryffindor but, do have Hufflepuffs in my life. I hope you enjoy these!

Read on for the full step-by-step recipe for these Fantastic Beasts Newt’s Hufflepuff Scarf Cookies!

All the ingredients needed to make the Hufflepuff Scarf Cookies. Cookie dough, fondant in purple and black, and icing.

Things You Will Need:

Yields: One dozen decorated cookies

Sugar cookies shaped into rectangles are shown.

Step 1:

Prepare cookie dough according to recipe’s directions and roll it out to be ¼ of an inch thick. Using a paring knife, cut cookies into rectangles: about 3 in. x 1.5 in. in size. Bake according to directions and allow to cool before decorating.
If any cookie dough remains, refrigerate in plastic wrap for future use!

Step 3:

Black fondant rectangles are being placed on iced sugar cookie.

Step 4:

Place 4 rectangles on each cookie, leaving spaces in-between each one.

Purple fondant is being turned into a bow by placing two teardrop shapes together.

Step 5:

Roll your purple fondant into 24 small spheres, about ¼ of an inch in size. Flatten each sphere and pinch one end so that it resembles a teardrop. Stick two tear-drop fondant pieces together, in the middle (they should mirror each other).

An extra square is added to the two teardrops to make Newt's purple bowtie.

Step 6:

Cut out 12 pieces of purple fondant into small squares. Place in the center of each double teardrop.
