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!

  • I’ve never actually smoked a day in my life. #frosty #frostythesnowman #glamfrosty #winter #wintermakeup
  • One of the reasons I liked this makeup so much was the incredibly simple nose. I’ve tried some looks in the past and I don’t know if it was the white face, orange nose, or just my lack of makeup experience, but I hated them. Instead of trying to literally draw a carrot, this is just a nod in that direction. Also, I’m not one for glitter but I really dig these eyes! Good thing I like them, because I still have glitter on my face. #glitter #frosty #wintermakeup
  • Sticking with my winter theme, it’s Frosty! Ok, this one is a great example of why I love the internet. I saw an AMAZING frosty photo on an Instagram feature account and took a screenshot because I was dying to recreate it. Normally I make sure I have the artists handle in the screenshot so I can tag them if I ever do try it, but somehow missed it this time. To find her, I took to YouTube to find @victorialyn ’s tutorial, and I’m completely blown away with not only the makeup, but the production quality of her videos. I know how much time and effort something like that takes and they are so much fun to watch, even if you don’t plan on doing the makeup in the tutorial. I love finding new artists to follow and be inspired by! #frosty #frostythesnowman #winter
  • The last look at my Frostbite! What other injury makeups could be considered "Holiday"? or at least timely for winter? Or should I do something more glam next? I have half a mind to save more gory winter looks for January when i'm no longer feeling the warm and fuzzies when it snows! #winter #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #sfx #sfxmua
  • "Walking in a Winter Wonderland"
Im really pleased with how this turned out! I know it's no super glamorous but creating actual injuries and skin conditions is a great challenge. I'll spare you the reference material, but it was fun trying to re-create the blistering, as gross as that sounds. Stay warm my friends! #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #winterwonderland #sfxmakeup #sfxmua
  • "Baby it's cold outside."
This look inspired by a 3 hour drive in a blizzard last weekend. It actually wasn't too bad, mostly just excruciatingly slow, but living in SD, I know how dangerous it can be going off the road in bad conditions. #frostbite #SFX #sfxmakeup #brrrrrr #sfxwound
  • “Oh Chucky look at us. We belong dead”
Last one of Tiffany.... which iconic horror villain should I do next? Tell me your favorites! #horrormovies #brideofchucky #tiffanyvalentine #chucky #brideofchuckymakeup #horrorfan
  • “I’ll kill anybody, but I’ll only sleep with someone I love.”
A girl has to have standards!!! 😂
Personally I loved Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany Valentine, how about you? #brideofchucky #tiffanyvalentine #chucky #chuckycosplay
  • "Barbie, eat your heart out."
You can't do Chucky without Tiffany! I apparently have super thick eyebrows because I felt they were incredibly difficult to cover properly, though I probably just need more practice blocking them out. I also know the doll didn't have bangs, but the actress did, so I felt like this blonde wig still did the trick. #brideofchucky #chucky #brideofchuckymakeup #tiffanyvalentine #cosplay
