This project was extremely fun and stressful, I had never used latex or made chocolates before and this project provided a lot of knowledge. I hope I have included as much of it in this instructable. One of the first lessons learnt is; you need plenty of time (1 week atleast) when creating the latex moulds and a good solid few hours to create the chocolates. I didn't provide myself either of these and hence this project was very rushed, however, the recipient was still quite impressed with them.
Chocolates are great gifts but they do get quite boring, hence the need to create your own. Whilst countless chocolate moulds are available, it is a lot more fun and impressive creating individualised moulds.
Now why the Freddo Frog
Simply because the planned recipient of these chocolates is a huge fan of them. They also work well as chocolate (they are already chocolate), come in two different sizes, and are fairly boring as they are. Also, I like the idea of managing to copy a design (quite accurately) with minimum time and cost.
A few points to note while reading this instructable are; I am located in Perth, Western Australia. Hence, any store references are all Australian based. Also, all prices are in Australian dollars.
