Peppermint Toads

Featured
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

Picture of 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
Spoons
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 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...

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 about your wand?
yota (author)  mndawsome2 years ago
My wand was born of a bit of boredom, during which time I took a Dremel to a dowel, then painted it a dark brown, then painted a brushing of antique gold colour, and wiped it away, lightly, after a few moments of drying.

Where in the WORLD did you make that box? I'm planning on making some movie-accurate Chocolate Frogs. I know how to make the Witches and Wizard cards. I also know how to make the frogs themselves. But the BOX is driving me crazy. What are your secrets????????
yota (author)  LegoDude3213 years ago
There's a ink to the box artwork in the final step; you can print it out and make one yourself.

If you just want a chocolate frog box, someone over at deviantart.com recreated it and the folding pattern by hand, so if you just search for "chocolate frog box" or something like that, you should be all good!
oh my gosh how cute!!

Looks like a good mold to me.
Your publications on Harry Potter themes candies are so much fun! I'm going to have to try them out on a couple of my friends.
