Introduction: Chocolate Lego Figures

In this Instructable, I will show you how to make LEGO Chocolate figures! These are one toy that your kids can definitely eat. :) These tasty legos are super easy to make, and sure to impress your kids, your friends, and whomever you deem worthy to taste them. Everything is Awesome, when you are eating legos! Chocolate Legos that is. Watch the video tutorial or follow the steps below, or do both! The video is fairly funny, well at least my friends think so, well and my mom. Enjoy!

Ingredients/Tools:

Chocolate - I bought some colored chocolate candy melts, I got them at walmart, but they can be found online as well. Fairly inexpensive, but you can stick to normal white chocolate, or dark, or milk chocolate.

Almonds - Add almonds to make them "Healthy"... :)

Silicone Lego Molds - I found these on Amazon for around $10 US. There is a large assortment of molds there.

Bamboo skewer - for putting on the faces

Parchment Paper pieces - for making dividers for the mold to keep the head and body separate

Spoons - to stir chocolate

Step 1: Everything You Need

Here is a picture of everything you will need to bring your chocolate lego figures to life.

Step 2: Cut Parchment Paper/melt Chocolate

First what you need to do is grab a piece of parchment paper and cut out a small square that will rest in your mold and separate the body from the head. Then you will melt the first color of chocolate that you are going to use for the body. I picked Milk chocolate. You can melt it in the microwave (bursts of 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds, stir, 10 seconds), or you can melt it on the stove using the double boiler method, which essentially is a bowl resting on a pot with water, and the steam from the boiling water warms up the bowl and melts the chocolate. You want to be careful and not burn your chocolate.

Step 3: Pour in Chocolate and Add Almonds

Now we use a spoon and pour in our chocolate about half way, then add your almonds. If you don't want to use almonds, then that is fine, just fill it on up to the top. Now give the mold a little shake.

Step 4: Put Mold in Refridgerator

Next, we take the mold, once it is all filled up and place it in the fridge for about 20 to 30 minutes so the body can set up nicely.

Step 5: Pick a Different Color

Next I picked a different color and followed the same steps.

Step 6: Remove Parchment Paper and Pour in the Head

Now after the body has set, we want to remove all the parchment paper (be gentle, and make sure to save the paper for more molds). Then we melt our color of chocolate that we want our head to be, and then pour that in. Give the mold a little shake, and put it back in the fridge for another 20 to 30 minutes.

Step 7: Alternative Method to Pour Chocolate

Or you can take a sandwich bag and add your melted chocolate to that. Cut off a little bit of the corner, and you got yourself a piping bag. Give it a gentle squeeze and pour the heads that way. This works well when the heads are small like this. Notice also I switched to white chocolate for these heads. Use whatever color/flavor you like.

Step 8: Remove the Chocolate From Mold

Now once the head have set, we go ahead and remove the chocolate figure from the mold. Don't force it, be gently with it loosing the sides, and pushing on the back of it. It will come out pretty easy.

Step 9: Paint on the Faces

Now what I did is melt some dark sweet chocolate so I could paint on the eyes and mouths. I used a bamboo skewer to do this. For the bigger lego man, I used the back end of the skewer, for the little ones, I used the sharper tip. A paint brush would work too. Or you can leave them with no faces if you choose. Once you are done with the faces, put them back in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes so the faces can set up.

Step 10: Admire Your Work

Now we have an army of chocolate lego figures! Hurray! In the video, they actually come to life, it is pretty cool.

Step 11: Eat Them

Now take a bite into one...mmm yummy!

Step 12: Video Tutorial

Make sure to watch to the end, it is pretty funny. :) well at least I have been told that. ha! (Maybe cheesy is a better word for it.)

Do these need to be kept in an air-tight container in the refrigerator when they're all finished? What a great video ! Thank you!

author

No not necessarily, but when I make them I do store them in the fridge in a tupperware storage container. But I also have stored them uncovered on a plate in the fridge. they are usually all eaten by a week or so haha, but they can last a lot longer I imagine. :) Thank you so much! and you are welcome!

Did you melt the almonds

author

I just chopped them up. They don't melt in the chocolate. The chocolate is not really that hot either.
