In Spelled, Princess Dorthea’s favorite snack is a little something called a Chocolate Wand. If you want to really get into the book, why not read and much your own wand?

There are a couple of ways to do it.

You can use a tube of Pillsbury breadsticks, taking apart one to roll out into a thin thread to spiral around the “wand”. Or you can mold the dough into any shape you want. Bake until crispy, then let cool.  Next melt down some chocolate in a double boiler. White chocolate, dark chocolate, milk or semi-sweet. Whatever flavor you are feeling. (If you want to get really fancy, you can dip your bread stick in caramel first) Dip 2/3 in, leaving a handle. Then add sprinkles before the chocolate dries.

Set and Voila. Thick Pretzel rods work well too.

It’s pretty easy, but if you want the feel without the work, Pocky Sticks are a sort of ready made solution. In fact I regularly chowed down on the while writing Spelled. Enjoy and if you make some wands, please tweet me a picture of the magic @BetsySchow or email me betsyschow@gmail.com
