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
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 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.

    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 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!

    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.

    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????????
