If you didn't think that pop culture and baked goods could get any better, how about pop culture themed baked goods?
Thanks to baker/chef and Youtube star, Rosanna Pansino, creator of Nerdy Nummies, we can now enjoy the best of both worlds.
Her Youtube account is dubbed the "Original Geeky Cooking Show", and includes recipes inspired by fantasy, sci-fi, comic books, anime, movies, video games and much, much more.
Some of her creations include liquorice wands from Harry Potter, delicate Alice in Wonderland "eat me" cookies, and cakes inspired by Inside Out, Finding Dory and Harley Quinn.
Here are the Harry Potter Licorice Wands we made today! ⚡️ Licorice Wand Recipe (Yields 1 Dozen) INGREDIENTS: -1 stick Butter -1 cup sugar -3/4 cup dark corn syrup -1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk -Pinch salt -3/4 cup Bread flour -2 Tbsp. Anise extract -Chocolate brown food coloring DIRECTIONS: 1. In a sauce pot, mix the butter, sugar, corn syrup and sweetened condensed milk until well combine and place in a candy thermometer. 2. Heat to 260F, stirring occasionally to make sure the sugar isn’t burning. 3. Once it reaches 260F, whisk in the flour and anise quickly, as the flour will brown from the heat of the sugar. 4. Pour into an 8” square cake pan that is lined with parchment and sprayed. 5. Chill for 20 minutes, then remove the licorice from pan and cut with knife to create long thin triangles. 6. Twist the triangles into the want shape and place back onto a lined sheet tray. Chill another 20 minutes to set.
