Chocolate Frogs!

This isn't a sewing project, but I'm still pretty proud of it and wanted to share.  I am selling chocolates to raise money for Team in Training, part of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  My friend got me a frog mold, and since then, I've been making a ton of chocolate frogs, Harry Potter-style.  (I've also made Crunchy Frogs for those Monty Python fans out there - peanut butter-filled with pretzel "bones"!)

 The green frogs have a vanilla-flavored white chocolate shell and are filled with a chocolate ganache.

The chocolate frogs have a dark chocolate shell and are filled with peanut butter!

I made Harry Potter cards based on characters from the books (not the actual wizards and witches that appear on the "real" chocolate frog cards).  The photos are printed on white cardstock.  The backs of the cards are a 12"x12" sticker that I found at Hobby Lobby.


I then wrap each frog individually in a clear bag (to keep the card from getting damaged).  Then I place the card in a decorated back and put the frog on top so that you can't see which character card you're getting.

So those are my chocolate frogs!  I am selling them 12 for $10 or $1 each with the card.  100% goes towards my Team in Training fund raising.
