Treacle

Blocks of ice-cream in every flavour you could think of, apple pies, treacle tarts... (PS7)

...the bubbling, treacle-thick Potion (CS12)

...Mr. Weasley, now spooning large amounts of treacle onto his porridge (GF6)

"Treacle tart, Hermione!" said Ron, deliberately wafting its smell toward her.
- Ron trying to persuade Hermione to eat (GF11)

He felt it was a better use of his time to eat his way steadily through his steak and kidney pie, then a large plateful of his favourite treacle tart.
- Harry, tuning out Ron and Hermione's bickering (GF11)

Definition

Treacle is a by-product of the sugar refining process and can vary in grade from very light Golden Syrup to Black Treacle (rather like molasses). Treacle Pudding is a plain steamed suet pudding which has warmed treacle poured over it. Treacle tart is a flat pastry case filled with treacle mixed with breadcrumbs and baked. In both dishes, Golden Syrup is usually used, as real treacle is quite strong in taste.
