Peanut Butter Magic Wands

A fun snack for an afternoon treat or a Harry Potter or Halloween party. The inspiration for this project was the carmel chocolate wands at the following site: http://heatherbailey.typepad.com/heather_bailey/2009/07/swish-and-flick.html My son didn't want chocolate as it aggravates his acne, so we decided on making them peanut butter instead. Items used:
  • 1 pkg. Peanut butter chips (we used Reece's)
  • 1 pkg.Pretzel Rods
  • 1/4 cup Sunflower seeds
  • 2 TBSP milk.
  • Double boiler or eqivalent
  • Baking Parchment or wax paper
  • Cookie sheet
  • Large spoon
  • Large bowl or mug(s) to pretzels up in after dipping.

Fill the bottom pan with water about 3/4 full and put the top pan in. Add more water if needed. Put the chips in the top pan of your boiler and turn on to medium heat, stirring occassionally with a large spoon.

When the chips have mostly melted, add in the 2 TBSP of milk. Blend melted chips and milk together. Coat the top of the pretzel with the melted chip mixture.

Place the completed pretzels in a bowl or several mugs while finishing up the pretzels. Place parchment or wax paper on a baking sheet spread out the sunflower seeds and roll the top of the pretzel in the seeds to coat them. Place completed wands in the refridgerator to harden for a few minutes, then serve.
