If you're as much of a Harry Potter nut as we are then these are PERFECT for your HP or magic themed party! Simple to make and very easy to get the kids involved. Fun, yummy and easily adaptable to what you have on hand. I serve these every year at our Halloween Party. Kid tested and family approved =)

Ingredients For ollivander's wands

  • 15 oz
    package pretzel rods
  • 1 pkg
    (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp
  • assorted sprinkles, colored sugar and small candies
  • white chocolate chips (optional)

How To Make ollivander's wands

  • 1
    Lay out some wax paper or foil on a baking sheet.
  • 2
    Combine the chocolate chips and the shortening in a large microwave-safe bowl, and microwave until the chocolate is melted, stirring after every 20 seconds. Chocolate over cooks easily so WATCH your chocolate!
  • 3
    Dip each pretzel rod into chocolate, not quite half way. Roll in sprinkles to coat the frosting and place on baking sheet. Continue until you've done all your pretzels.
  • 4
    Place pretzels in the fridge for about 1/2 hour to set.
  • 5
    If you want you can sub white chocolate in this recipe or melt a bit of white chocolate and drizzle it over the wands for a fancy look. You can even use food coloring gel to color coordinate with your party theme. If using white chocolate pretzels will need to be set again after.
