"Chocolate Cauldrons, they've got Firewhisky in them."
— Description[src]

Chocolate Cauldrons were boxed chocolates that were filled with Firewhisky and were presumably shaped like cauldrons. They could be given as gifts.[2] These could be bought at Honeydukes sweet shop.[1]

Romilda Vane gave Harry Potter a box that she had spiked with Love Potion in 1996.[2] On 1 March, they were eaten by Ron Weasley, who mistook them for a birthday present. He offered Harry one, but he refused it.[3]

There were most likely eight in a package, since when Ron Weasley ate four Cauldrons with Romilda's love potion in them, Harry said, "You just ate half a box of Chocolate Cauldrons."[3]

Behind the scenes

  • In the book, Ron eats "about half a box" of these, but in the film, he eats the whole box.
  • The Wizarding World of Harry Potter sells Chocolate Cauldrons. They are hollow milk chocolate cauldrons, with a green marshmallow "foam".
