2016 is the year the magical world came back into my life. To be honest, it never really left. With the release of the book Harry Potter and the Cursed Child back in the beginning of August and now with Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them coming out in November, there’s no wonder why I still have hope to one day find out I really do have magical powers. So while I wait for my powers to make an appearance I’ll try to recreate somethings, like CHOCOLATE FROGS! One day I’ll be able to enchant them to jump around, but for now I’ll enjoy them as they are with their milk chocolate exterior and peanut buttery interior.
The idea for this came from Pinterest a few years ago. So I went to Amazon and bought a chocolate frog mold. They’re not too badly priced.
- 1 bag Candy Wafers
- Frog mold
For the milk chocolate exterior I used Make n Mold candy wafers. Wilton candy wafers work just as well. Melted about half the bag down in a bowl in the microwave. They will burn if left in the microwave for too long. I then spooned chocolate into each of the frogs making sure to cover the base but not filling in the mold entirely.
If you do not want to add the peanut butter filling then just fill the entirety of the frog mold with chocolate. Otherwise place in fridge and let first layer solidify for about 10 minutes.
Peanut Butter Filling:
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup confectionary sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
Mix the above ingredients together. Mush some together and place in the body of the frogs. Not too much that it goes over the mold, because you still want to put another layer of chocolate on top of the peanut butter filling.
Melt down a bit more of the chocolate wafers and add layer over peanut butter fillings. Covering so you can’t see peanut butter or first layer of chocolate.
Then place in fridge to set for about 10 minutes. Pop frogs out of mold and enjoy!
