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!

Hello!

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!

  • William Faulkner said to “it’s hard to kill your darlings” meaning it can be difficult to critique your own work, especially if you put a lot into it. Stephen King went on to say you should put your work away for six months to a year before editing so you can clearly evaluate. I’m really glad I looked back at this one. Even without the wig, I think it’s striking. #hauntmua #sfxmua #stevenkingismyhero #skullmakeup
  • I’m going through old pictures and ran across this one. I remember not really being happy with this look, and sure, the lines could have been cleaner, but I still really like this! I think we should always go back and look at work a year later... even if it really want good, it shows us just how far we have come in so little time. #skullmakeup #hauntmua #sfxmua #personalgrowth
  • I often do a look that I’m just not all that happy with afterwards, as is with this “halfway to Halloween” clown I created back in.... May? Looking at it now, I don’t know what it is exactly it was that I didn’t like... maybe I just needed a orange wig? I almost like a progress pic more than the finished product. What do you think?#clowns #clownmakeup
  • Throwback to my first actual clown makeup! The eye shapes were inspired by a few looks by @totalnightmaretravis, and i was incredibly excited about this wig! The Rhapsody Short by @rockstarwigs is probably the most fun wig to wear that I currently own. I only have red, but am heavily considering another color for my collection.
Happy National Clown Week! #justclowningaround #clowns #scaryclowns
  • Happy National Clown Week! A year ago, I wasn’t a big fan of clowns, but I practiced so many clown makeups that I eventually came to find them to be one of my favorites, and even created my own clown character. This is the first actual clown makeup I recreated based on @grave_digger_the_clown for last year’s haunt. Turned out a lot prettier than he is, no? 😉

  • One last look at this (insightful? Revealing?) makeup! I actually really loved the eyes by themselves, and they took a good 2 hours themselves. A good challenge in trying to make a flat art of round objects translated on a curved surface! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #eyes #makeupartist #inspiredbyart

  • Eye see you! I also understand I’m not funny, it’s ok. 😂
This was actually a fun challenge, eyes are really complex and took nearly 2 hours to get them where I was happy. Of all of this, I’m really proud of the detail I was able to get in the irises of each eye, and my blocked eyebrow almost completely disappeared! This actually looks amazing compared to the first time I blocked them out. Yay for progress! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #horrormakeup #horrorart 
Inspired by art from @xsullo
  • I love finding inspiration in new places, and when @bearded_horror shared artwork by @xsullo a week or so ago, I knew I had to give it a try as a makeup! Seriously, such amazing art. I hope I did it justice! Check out their profile to see even more incredible works and compare to the original.
  • After this photoshoot im not sure how to go back to my plain black background... I mean if there isn’t ominous fog in the background, does it really even count?!?! #fogmachine #clownmakeup #scareactress #hauntlife #evietheclown
