Lego Chocolates!



My son's teacher know he loves and adores Legos so she told him about a nearby candy store which sold candy shaped like Legos that you can actually build with and then eat!  Well, my little guy loved that idea so he needed to go to that candy store.  After digging around a little, I found out the candy shop had closed down last year....well, that started a breakdown of epic proportions did not sit well with my son.
 
I checked around on the web and thought I could make some type of Lego candy.  For simplicity sake I decided on Lego chocolates because we could get our supplies that night and the chocolate would be ready!  I was inspired by these Lego gummies too.  I will try these soon!

There is a product called 'Amazing Mold Putty'.  I picked it up at Hobby Lobby for $20.   You can make a mold out of pretty much anything!


Here is the back of the box....all of the included directions.


It comes with 2 tubes of putty.  You mix them together in equal amounts, knead them and then press the Lego into the putty to make the mold. 



Leave the Lego in the mold for about 20 minutes, then remove it.  The putty becomes rubbery and if you're careful, should not come apart when taking the Lego piece out.


I bought this chocolate (although I'm pretty sure it's fake) at Hobby Lobby, melted it in the microwave and poured it into my little Lego molds.





After about an hour in the fridge, I carefully took the chocolate out of the mold and was left with these chocolate Lego pieces:


My son loved them!


I wrapped them up and gave them at the neighborhood holiday cookie exchange instead of cookies.

They tasted pretty good but I bet if you used good chocolate, or made your own they would be even better!

On a side note:  can you believe I posted 2 days in a row??

Thanks for looking!
