👩🏼🍳 How to Make Chocolate Frogs
Step 1: Pour a bag of milk chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl.
Step 2: Melt chocolate in microwave for 45 seconds. Stir with a wooden spoon.
Step 3: Melt for another 30 seconds and stir again. If there are still small chunks, continue to melt in 30-second intervals until the chocolate is smooth and creamy.
Step 4: Pour chocolate into the plastic candy molds, saving the remaining chocolate for the next batch. Tap the plastic mold gently on the counter a few times to get rid of air bubbles.
Step 5: Refrigerate for about two hours to let the chocolate set. Keep chilled or in a cool, dry place until ready to serve.
Can I Make these Chocolate Frogs in Advance?
Sure! Chocolate candy frogs freeze really well. Once they have completely set up in the fridge, just drop them into a freezer safe bag. They’ll keep in the freezer for up to several months.
What is a Chocolate Frog?
Not familiar with chocolate frogs? Well, don’t worry, it’s not an actual frog! The wizarding world may be full of fun sweet treats like acid pops and butterbeer but these are one of the most popular sweets at Hogwarts.
What makes them so much fun is that the frogs actually come to life. That means that if you have one, you’d better eat it quick if you want to get a taste before it hops away.
The famous chocolate frogs even come with collectable wizard cards. You may remember that Harry got the Albus Dumbledore card on his very first ride aboard the Hogwarts Express.
Delicious Frog Variations
- Chocolate: You can switch this recipe up with dark chocolate chips or even white ones. Just remember that with white chocolate, you’ll have to use a double boiler. Milk chocolate has more cocoa solids and is easier to work with in the microwave compared to white chocolate that’s mostly cocoa butter.
- Crispy frogs: You can mix in about 1/4 cup of crisped rice cereal if you want your frogs on the crispy side.
- Jelly belly frogs: A really fun twist is to add a single jelly belly in the center of each frog before the chocolate dries. It’s a yummy surprise when you bite into the middle of each delicious treat.
- Nutty frogs: Place a single pecan half in the center of the melted chocolate. You will get a little bit of pecan in every bite of your delicious frog candy.
- Oreo frogs: Just when you think they can’t get any better, try adding finely crushed Oreo cookies to the melted chocolate.
