This has to be the cutest looking bread I have ever seen! Almost too cute to eat! Almost. Check out the instructions to make your own Niffler bread here!

Who wasn’t a fan of the Niffler? He was absolutely adorable, even if he was a bit mischievous. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them along with Newt Scamander, introduced us to one of my all time favorite creatures of the Harry Potter world. If you loved the little scavenger as much as I did, you are definitely going to want to check this out!

The Niffler

So in case you didn’t know, the Niffler is a creature very similar to a platypus. But of course, this is the wizarding world, so there are some major differences. Our magical little creature loves anything shiny or valuable. They have a pouch in their belly that works like the Mary Poppins bag. It just goes on forever. They are a naturally gentle creature, but can be quite destructive if kept indoors.

The Bread

Cooking can be extremely difficult at times! But this is not one of them! Not only is the recipe easy to follow, but there is a video. And the video is clear cut and short in length. Definitely helpful when you aren’t a natural cook.

As a bonus, Ireland’s very own Andrew Smyth is the here to show the way! If you don’t know who he is, feel free to look him up. You won’t regret it. But, what you need to know is, he is one amazing baker! He was a finalist on The Great British Bake Off this past October. He is always smiling and is great at explaining things so anyone can understand. Did I mention he is adorable? Well, he is.

The Recipe

Andrew dropped the tweet at the end of March, and the amount of love for it has expanded. You could say it has risen. Huh? Huh? Ok, I’ll stop. You can check out his Twitter page here! he drops all kinds of amazing recipes and how to’s. He also has his own website that you can visit. That’s here! Again, I highly recommend checking these out!
