Just in time for everyone’s favorite holiday and the upcoming Fantastic Beasts film, these Harry Potter licorice wands will deliciously complete any HP costume (or make for a wonderful treat while you catch up on the last eight movies).
In the above episode of the online baking show “Nerdy Nummies,” vlogger Rosanna Pansino demonstrates how to create the life-like wands that also happen to look delish. For full directions, check out this Instagram post:
Here are the Harry Potter Licorice Wands we made today! ⚡️ Licorice Wand Recipe (Yields 1 Dozen) INGREDIENTS: -1 stick Butter -1 cup sugar -3/4 cup dark corn syrup -1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk -Pinch salt -3/4 cup Bread flour -2 Tbsp. Anise extract -Chocolate brown food coloring DIRECTIONS: 1. In a sauce pot, mix the butter, sugar, corn syrup and sweetened condensed milk until well combine and place in a candy thermometer. 2. Heat to 260F, stirring occasionally to make sure the sugar isn’t burning. 3. Once it reaches 260F, whisk in the flour and anise quickly, as the flour will brown from the heat of the sugar. 4. Pour into an 8” square cake pan that is lined with parchment and sprayed. 5. Chill for 20 minutes, then remove the licorice from pan and cut with knife to create long thin triangles. 6. Twist the triangles into the want shape and place back onto a lined sheet tray. Chill another 20 minutes to set.
