Introduction: Peppermint Toads

I made this creme by accident one day, and it was delicious. Put it in the form of a toad and you've got another sweet straight from Honeyduke's!

Peppermint + White Chocolate + Marshmallow = AWESOME

Step 1: Materials

To make this delicious creme candy, you will need the following:

1 1/2 cups White chocolate
1/2 cup Marshmallow Creme
1 tblsp Honey
2 tblsp Shortening
Peppermint Flavour
Red Food Colouring
A Frog/Toad-Shaped Candy Mold
Microwave-Safe Bowls
A Ziplock Bag

Step 2: The White Stripes

Melt 1/2 cup of white chocolate by placing it in the microwave for about a minute. Scoop the melted chocolate into a ziplock bag, smoosh it down into one corner, and tear off the tip. Using your new makeshift pastry bag, pipe diagonal lines across your frog molds. Place the mold into the freezer to harden the chocolate while you prepare the creme.

Step 3: Peppermint Creme

Melt the remaining cup of white chocolate and add in food colouring and marshmallow creme. Once combined, add honey and shortening. Finally, add peppermint flavour to taste. Mix thoroughly.

Step 4: Composition

Remove the frog mold from the freezer and begin spooning peppermint creme into them. Pop the treats back into the freezer until set. Remove from the freezer, remove from the molds, and you're all set!

Step 5: Eat the Toads!

Now that you've got the toads, maybe you'll need somewhere to keep them...

    Does this need to stay refrigerated until served? I am thinking of making them ahead and freezing them, then pulling them out the day I will serve them.

    How many does this recipe make? Would it make a few more than the mold? I need a dozen

    Hey! I love this. I'm totally planning to make these guys for Christmas. But I have a few questions. How hard are these? Do they set up something similar to a chocolate sort of thing or would they sort of "melt" for lack of better word. Do they need to be kept cold? Maybe a better question. Also, how long have you kept these for? Do they go bad or anything? I'd like to be able to make them in advance if possible, and maybe wrap them individually and keep in the fridge. Then put them into boxes when it's time to give them out.

    Can you please post a couple pictures of the wand featured in the picture and btw me and my best friend had a blast making these at a harry potter movie party...

    Oh goodness that wand in the foreground is utterly lovely. <3

    Exactly what i was thinking it is a very beautiful wand

    Can you please post a how-to for making the box? I know where to buy chocolate frogs and if i put it in there and took it to school it would be so awesome!

    Is the mold plastic? How do you pop out the frogs?

    I've got the same mold. Yes, it is plastic. You should spray some food-release or non-stick spray into the molds before using them, and they'll just pop right out with a little wiggling and tapping. It's not difficult at all.

    What they have peppermint toads! But i got the special edition Dumbledore frog.
