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!

  • 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
Inspire by art by @xsullo
  • 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
  • This is my level of excitement right now! The love I have gotten for Evie over the past few days have been amazing, thank you all so much! #clown #clownmakeup #clowns #hauntlife #scareactress
  • That’s not a Wiley grin, that’s me clamping my teeth together so I stopped chattering. This spring was BRUTAL in SD, and it was in the 30s when we shot this in an unheated parking garage. #clowningaround #clownmakeup #scareactor #scareactress #hauntlife
  • Evie is probably my favorite full-costume character I’ve created to date. It’s so fun to think a practice look I made for haunt last year will be a fully fledged character come haunt season next year! Also, I NEED these light bars @jibclimmer used in this shoot. If anyone has a few hundred dollars to donate to the cause just let me know. 😉 #clown #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #hauntlife #makeupartist
  • If only @grave_digger_the_clown would learn to share, Evie wouldn’t have to steal his shovel! #justclowningaround #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife photography credit goes to the incredibly talented @jibclimmer
  • Hey guys! It’s been a hell of last few months, but trust me, I’ve been busy! I’d like to introduce my newest character, Evie the Clown! Thanks so much to @jibclimmer for these incredible photos... more to come very shortly. #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife
