Licorice Wizard Wands

Expecto Patronum! Whether they're casting spells or disappearing into bellies, these super-easy treats are a fun addition to any wizard party.

What you'll need: Black licorice sticks, white Candy Melts, white nonpareils (candy sprinkles), wax paper, baking sheet, orange M&M's

Directions: Line baking sheet with wax paper and set aside. Melt the candy melts according to package instructions. Dip tips of each licorice twist into the melted candy to create the top part of the "wand," then sprinkle with white nonpareils while the candy is still wet. Place the wands on wax paper and let dry until the candy coating is firm. Display in a bed of orange M&M's.

Tip: To create multicolored wands, use Rainbow Twizzlers instead of black licorice, along with different shapes and colors of candy sprinkles.
