Harry Potter Snacks: Chocolate Frogs & Butterbeer

Updated: May 23

It wouldn't be a Harry Potter event without the iconic Butterbeer & Chocolate Frogs, would it? While you can certainly buy these treats ready-made, branded items tend to be expensive. Both of these specialty foods are actually very easy to make, so let's see how to do it!

Did you know that if you were to order Chocolate Frogs on Amazon, they’re $3 or $4 apiece, and can take WEEKS to ship? Today let's see how you can make them for about 50 cents each, and that’s including shelling out $6 for a candy mold!

First, you'll need a frog mold made specifically for candy. Check out this cute one on Amazon:

Each mold will make 8 frogs, and each frog requires 1.2 oz of chocolate to fill it. I make my Chocolate Frogs with Hershey Kisses because I like the taste better than regular chocolate chips.

Hershey Kisses come in different size bags, so you'll need to do a little calculation to determine how many you'll need to buy to make the number of frogs you want.
