1 Ingredient Licorice Wands, Version 2 | Harry Potter
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 2 metre licorice (Fyna brand)
Instructions
  1. Take a mold of the wand you're wanting to use and let set. Big tip, only use a wand size that would fit in your microwave. You can do this as a halfsided wand or a 3D wand.
  2. Cut the licorice strip to the length of the wand and slice from one corner on a diagonal to the other corner.
  3. You'll need one of these strips for each side that you do (1 strip for a 2D and 2 strips for a 3D).
  4. Heat in the microwave for 20 seconds on low power.
  5. Press into the mold.
  6. For 3D molds, press the mold together to form the correct 3D shape. I used brand new metal free hair ties to hold the mold in place.
  7. Place in the microwave for 20-25 seconds.
  8. Take out of the microwave and, using a wooden chopstick, press the licorice down to compress.
  9. Place back in the microwave on low power for another 20-25 seconds, and again remove and press the licorice down.
  10. Place in the freezer to quickly cool down the licorice (~5-10 minutes)
  11. Remove, then slide off the hair ties and remove wand from mold.
  12. Repeat till you have enough licorice wands.
Notes
Do one wand test with your microwave to figure out correct timing. Some microwaves may need longer or shorter.
