“What are these?” Harry asked Ron, holding up a pack of Chocolate Frogs. “They’re not really frogs, are they?” He was starting to feel that
nothing would surprise him.
“No,” said Ron. “But see what the card is. I’m missing Agrippa.”
“Oh, of course, you wouldn’t know — Chocolate Frogs have cards, inside them, you know, to collect — famous witches and wizards. I’ve got about five hundred, but I haven’t got Agrippa or Ptolemy.”
HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE
Other than butterbeer, what other food is more memorable than the chocolate frogs from Honeydukes? From the beginning, I always assumed that the chocolate frogs would have a gummy texture instead of it being solid chocolate. That’s where this idea of chocolate covered gummy frogs came in. The recipe for the chocolate gummies come from Christine McConnell’s book – Deceptive Desserts. I’m sure everyone has already seen and heard about Christine’s work but if you haven’t had a good read through her book, you’re missing out. Her work and talent is EVERYTHING.
As you can see, I have two different images up above of the chocolate frogs. I always imagined the frogs with a chocolate shell but doing so will take away some of the great detail that the mold provides. So, if you want to keep it easy, just make the chocolate frogs without the chocolate coating. You can find and purchase the frog molds I used on Amazon.
