Chocolate Frogs! Chocolate Frogs! Get Your Chocolate Frogs Here!

Ever since the first mention of the Chocolate Frog In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in 1997, I have wanted a Chocolate Frog. I have wanted to make one (or a dozen) or even buy one but, 15 years later, I still have not done so. Therefore, I thought I'd create a page dedicated to the Chocolate Frog. Hopefully, one way or another, it will help me obtain my first ever Chocolate Frog.

On this page then you will find information about Harry Potter's Chocolate Frog including a bit about the history of the frog in terms of the Harry Potter books, resources for making your own Chocolate Frogs and, in case you are like me and just cannot seem to get around to it, I'll even share a place where you can BUY your Chocolate Frog.

What Is The Significance Of The Chocolate Frog to Harry Potter?

In the wizarding world, Chocolate Frogs are a very popular candy treat that is sold with collectible cards that feature images of well known wizards and witches. These cards are collected and traded amongst the pupils at Hogwarts School. Reportedly, the frogs are manufactured from 70 percent Croakoa, an ingredient that allows them to actually behave like a frog. We are fortunate in that Chocolate Frogs are available to us mere Muggles, too.

The Chocolate Frog In The Wizarding World

  • Harry Potter fought with Professor Quirrell and Voldemort and wound up in the Hogwarts Infirmary where he received, as one often does, treats from friends. Unfortunately, while Harry was not awake, someone ate his frogs...
  • During their first year at Hogwarts, Hermione Granger gave Harry a large box of chocolate frogs.
  • Harry was given another box of Chocolate Frogs by Hagrid in his fourth year at Hogwarts.
  • Ronald Weasley was the recipient of Chocolate Frogs when he was in the hospital after the Battle of the Department of Mysteries during their fifth year at Hogwarts.
  • Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger eventually were featured on the cards in Chocolate Frogs because of their efforts in defeating Lord Voldemort. Being placed on a card was one of Ron Weasley's proudest moments.

I love how the blogger at Fictional Food shares an extremely easy, step-by-step recipe and even includes instructions on how to make a box. I agree with Fictional Food that they would be great party favours and I also think they would make great gifts or stocking stuffers for Harry Potter fans. As the writer says, "You don't have to empty out your vault in Gringott's to make these Chocolate Frogs."

How To Make A Peanut Butter Chocolate Frog

A different recipe for Chocolate Frogs

The Chocolate Frog recipe that blogger Ezra Pound Cake shares with the world is a peanut butter Chocolate Frog and it sounds pretty amazing, too. I agree with her when she says that the world needs more wonderful and weird Chocolate Frogs.

Three Basic Items Needed To Make Chocolate Frogs

A chocolate frog mold, a squeeze bottle and melting chocolate

I don't know why I have waited so long to make Chocolate Frogs. Maybe it was because I thought it was going to be hard or complicated but, judging by the recipes I have visited here today, it is not. The recipes are extremely easy and the only equipment you need is a Chocolate Frog mold, a squeeze bottle and melting chocolate. I thought the squeeze bottle was a particularly brilliant idea because I was picturing myself painstakingly spooning the chocolate into the little forms in the mold...and making a mess at the same time.

I've chosen to share Ghiradelli chocolate here because I figure these Chocolate Frogs are only going to be as good as the chocolate you use to make them...obviously, I cannot guarantee that this is the best chocolate for melting (since I've never made my own frogs) but the Amazon reviewers are enthusiastic about the chocolate and one used it to make chocolate covered pretzels.

Ghiradelli's website says you can use their chocolate. They say not to add any water, milk or butter and to spoon it into your candy mold and refrigerate it for two hours.If you are unable to pick these items up locally or prefer the ease of shopping on Amazon and having your order delivered to your front door in a couple of days, you can take comfort that the prices on Amazon are definitely good on these items and remember that shipping is FREE if your order is worth $25 or more.

How To Make Exploding Chocolate Frogs

Just add Pop Rocks, the Secret Ingredient.

Here is a Chocolate Frog recipe twist that I was not expecting: Exploding Chocolate Frogs. There are a number of recipes that, through the addition of Poprocks candy, turn a simple ordinary Chocolate Frog into an Exploding Chocolate Frog. If you are looking for a bit of excitement, you might try this angle.

Where To Buy A Chocolate Frog

Fortunately for those of us who live in the Muggle world, Chocolate Frogs are readily available online.

Consider the season when you order Harry Potter Chocolate Frogs online...I'm not sure that they will hold up well to sitting for hours in your mailbox when it is the middle of summer. I know they would not hold up well in mine.
