A special wizard deserves a special Harry Potter Gryffindor Wand. These chocolate covered pretzel rods are exactly what you need for a Harry Potter themed birthday party or even a great treat for a school bake sale. They are so easy to make and they look so pretty! These would look spectacular in a mason jar on a birthday table. Label the wands with Gryffindor or Firebolt Broomsticks.
How to Make Harry Potter Gryffindor Wands (aka chocolate covered pretzel rods)
1 cup white chocolate melting wafers divided
Sprinkles (I used yellow sprinkles)
food coloring (red + blue )
- Melt chocolate in microwave according to package directions.
- Divide the mixture into 2 separate cups and add food coloring to each. ( 1 drop blue + 2 drops red for maroon)
- Dip the pretzel rod sticks into the maroon melted chocolate, turning to ensure coverage.
- Drip the white melted chocolate over the maroon chocolate.
- Place on wax paper and decorate with sprinkles.
- Let dry.
Harry Potter Gryffindor or Firebolt Party Desserts
These are so pretty and can be altered depending on what your colors of your party are. I love using the maroon and yellow assorted sprinkles. I think it gives the Harry Potter inspired wand a nice touch.If you do not relate to the Gryffindor house simple switch up the colors for Slytherian, HufflePuff or Raveclaw.
These chocolate dipped “Harry Potter Gryffindor Wands” would also work for any variety of Harry Potter parties- showers, weddings, graduations. These would also look and taste fantastic for a bake sale. I would wrap 2 chocolate pretzels in a cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon and a tag.
These chocolate covered pretzels make a great addition to any dessert table or centerpiece for a party and really they are so easy to make and are not time consuming.
I keep the finished pretzels refrigerated until party time just so they do not melt and make messy hands.
