Harry Potter Chocolate Frogs

Harry Potter chocolate frog featureHarry Potter’s first ride on the Hogwart’s Express introduced him to his best friends, and to the wide array of wizarding sweets. The most notable from that ride were the Chocolate Frogs and the cards that accompanied them. While many tutorials show ways to make a more gelatinous frog that wiggles in a life-like way, I didn’t feel they looked quite as appetizing. These chocolate frogs are pure chocolate with a bit of texture added in the form of toffee or crunchy fillings! The best part is these can be ready in just 30 minutes!

Harry Potter’s Chocolate Frogs

You will need:

Instructions:

1. Start by melting your chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments until melted, stirring in between. Spoon a little bit of chocolate into the chocolate frog mold. You want to use enough so you can spread the chocolate up the sides of the mold, leaving room in the center for filling.

2. Spoon your chosen filling (toffee or crunch bits) into the center of the frog. Leave enough room so that you can fill the rest of the frog with chocolate. Gently use the spoon to drizzle and spread chocolate over the filling, leaving the bottom of the frog level.

3. Place mold in freezer for 3o minutes to all the frogs to harden completely. Gently press the molds like you would an ice tray to get the frogs to pop out. Allow frogs to thaw to room temperature before placing in the boxes (next step).

4. If you want to go all out for your chocolate frogs, you can make these super adorable frog boxes! Using this template, print them out in color on 8.5×11 inch paper, and if possible, use a heavier weight paper. Since I don’t have a color printer, I saved the template on a flash drive and had them printed at the UPS store.

5. Cut them out and fold along each of the lines, taping where necessary to keep it’s shape. It’s that easy! Props to the designer, these look fantastic!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • Anybody else struggle this time of year? I’m looking at these lovely sunbeams from my Alice In Wonderland shoot this summer to bring some sunshine to my day. I’ll be doing just fine, then be lying on the couch trying to feel like I can breathe again. I know it is ok, and these increased symptoms will pass, but it’s certainly not fun, especially when I have projects and ideas id like to tackle, but can’t get past this paralyzing anxiety. What do you guys use to help with SADD? #SADD #anxiety #ptsd #seasonaldepression  #winteristheworst #whydoilivehere
  • Halfway done! Still a ton to do, and I’ve learned ALOT already, like how not to sew in an invisible zipper, that I need a seam ripper, and need to invest in real fabric shears. But it’s actually coming together! Having never used a pattern before, I admit I looked at the pile of paper with some skepticism. Also, it kind of matches my couch. 😂 #cosplay #sewing #mccallspatterns #mccalls #mccallscosplay #spacesuit #plussizecosplay
  • Hanging out with mystic while I tackle my next sewing project. I like to think her interest is in hanging out with me, but there is a high chance she just wants the Fritos I’ve been munching... #cosplay #cosplaydog #sewing #mccallspatterns #cosplaymccalls #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram
  • Bull in boots! It was enough of a battle to get her into them, and she refuses to move anywhere wearing them! 😂😂😂 I was so looking forward to a little dance, but so far she is just laying there looking helpless. Maybe if I get out the peanut butter? #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #doginboots #notcoolmom
  • I decided to spring for new ornaments this year and went from hyper colorful to classic beauty with a Gryffindor Christmas tree, complete with Hedwig ornaments! No DIY here (except the jingle bell snitch) just a very content Gryffindor snuggling on the couch enjoying the lights and a glass of wine. #twomoresleeps #harrypotterchristmas #gryffindor #housepride
  • New Christmas gift to myself... the long curly in emerald green from @rockstarwigs ! I’m hoping my ideas for some holiday makeup looks can inspire me to get back at it now that I can finally use my right arm! Any guesses or requests? #merrychristmastome #cosplaychristmas #rockstarwigs
  • The top 9 for madlikealyce! It has been a fantastic year, trying out all kinds of new things and really expanding on my love for makeup and cosplay. Thank you to all of my AMAZING FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS who have been with me on this journey. I can wait until my shoulder has healed enough to get back to it, I have a whole LIST of things I am dying to try! In the meantime, I’m at least back to writing on the blog, so make sure to check me out there, Link in bio. ❤️ you all!
  • Sick day snuggles. But at least it’s my first day out of the sling! #countdownisover #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbull #drinkallthetea
