My own feelings on licorice can be summed up by this comic, so one wave of these Harry Potter licorice wands have the power to make me feel gross. You can wield this power thanks to Rosanna Pansino—her Nerdy Nummies tutorial is available below. I have to admit, they do look pretty fantastic as wands. Not as food—wands.
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.
