Just as delicious as they are enchanting, these magical cookie wands will make any child feel like a skilled wizard. Using our refrigerated chocolate chip bar dough, cookies are cut into star shapes and added to a pretzel rod as an easy and fun family activity. For a final, sparkling touch, top the wands with a variety of decorator gels and sprinkles.
