I was getting really sad earlier because I couldn’t find my chocolate frog mold. But then I remembered a spell to help me out! So I grabbed my wand and said, “Accio chocolate frog mold!” and there it came, whizzing out from under my bed!
See? Harry Potter spells can be very useful in real life.
I made Chocolate Frogs!
The magical Chocolate Frog box came from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. My sister got it for my mom as a souvenir, so just pay no attention to the “milk chocolate” labeling on the front.
I didn’t want solid chocolate frogs, so I thought I’d make a chocolate “truffle” center. I used a mixer to combine 1/4 C (v) cream cheese, 3/4 C confectioner’s sugar, 3/4 C chocolate chips (melted), and 1/2 TBSP vanilla extract.
It took about 1 C of chocolate chips to create the shells of eight frogs. I used a piping bag to pipe on the bottom and a spoon to spread it evenly. Like this:
I’d really like to make some chocolate frogs with raisins in the center. Chocolate-covered raisin frogs! That’d be awesome to take to the movies as a snack.
The chocolate frog mold I used can be found here!
I’m going to a Harry Potter “preview” party at a local science museum tonight and watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 on their IMAX screen at midnight! I hope all those kids keep their mouths shut during the movie… Well, along with everyone else :-D
