These Harry Potter howler envelope snacks are a must have for any Harry Potter themed party!

We made them for our epic Harry Potter charcuterie board for Halloween a couple of years ago.

I had so wanted to include them in our amazing Harry Potter birthday party, but ran out of time to get them made.

The howler envelopes are instantly identifiable as being from the Harry Potter movies, especially with the addition of the eyes and lips.

If you’re looking for my Sorting Hat Dogs recipe, you can find it here.

They are both a must have Harry Potter food!

And it seems the original recipe I followed to make them is no longer available. Boo!

So I have written out the recipe below as I remember so we can all make them anytime.

Epic Harry Potter Charcuterie Board
Harry Potter Howler Envelope Snacks

These Harry Potter howler envelope snacks are reminiscent of crab rangoon using a won ton and cream cheese filling.

However, you can change up the cream cheese filling ingredients in any way you desire.

We prefer a savory treat for our charcuterie board so we stuck to adding green onions and salt only to the cream cheese filling.

But if you prefer a sweet treat, you could add jam or just sugar to the cream cheese.

Or change it up altogether with Nutella or some similar filling.

Harry Potter Howlers Charcuterie Board

Howler envelope snacks are a must have treat for any Harry Potter fan.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 1 package won ton wrappers
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2-3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups vegetable oil for frying
  • Small bowl of water
  • Red and black gel icing


  1. In a small bowl, mix softened cream cheese, green onions, and salt.
  2. Place a won ton on the counter so that is in the shape of a diamond.
  3. Add 1 teaspoon of cream cheese mixture in the middle of the won ton.
  4. Dip fingertip in bowl of water and rub around the edges of the won ton wrapper. This will help seal the edges of the won ton when it is folded.
  5. Fold won ton wrapper in the shape of an envelope by folding the bottom corner up to the middle of the wrapper, followed by each side, then the top corner.
  6. Heat oil over medium heat (or ~350° F).
  7. Once hot, fry envelopes in small batches as will fit in your pan, ~3-4 minutes per side.
  8. Place cooked envelopes on paper to drain.
  9. Once cooled, use gel icing to create angry eyes and lips on the side of the envelope with seams.


A good seal on the envelope edges ensures cream cheese filling will not leak out during cooking. You can rub more water on the seams prior to frying if you think they need it.

These howlers make a great appetizer if you’re hosting a Harry Potter themed dinner.

But they also work great as a party  food or, obviously, on a charcuterie board.


We are clearly Harry Potter obsessed in the this house, and I’m okay with that.

It seems like we come up with random reasons to throw some sort of Harry Potter celebration.

Again, I’m okay with that!
