Want to serve frogs at your next Halloween party? These cake pop filled chocolate frogs are simple to make and will be a toad-al hit!
What’s your favorite movie?
Mine is any one of the Harry Potter series. The first one is a classic, but it got a darker, more adult tone around the 4th or 5th movie…
…sorry, my inner nerd was showing.
As you can see, I am a slight fan girl when it comes to the series. It would probably make more sense if I said the movies remind me of my childhood.
That would also be a lie, but still.
It was probably college before I started watching them. I didn’t jump on the bandwagon when they first came out, but I caught one on TV one day and I was hooked ever since.
I’ve read all the books, watched all the movies, and I may have caught one or two of the later movies on opening night at the theater.
I even managed to convince my oldest son of the Harry Potter awesomeness. He was thrilled when we threw him an HP inspired birthday party last year, complete with chocolate frogs, floating candles, and Polyjuice potion.
My youngest thinks we’re the biggest nerds on the planet, and I’m okay with that.

Ever since the HP party, I’ve had this chocolate frog mold and no reason to use it. I was recently getting a head start on seasonal treats with Halloween Rice Krispie Treats, when it hit me. Why not make some chocolate frogs for Halloween?
How to Make Chocolate Frogs
You can use the mold to make plain chocolate frog candy, or you can step it up a notch and make cake pop filled chocolate frogs.

I started by melting white candy coating and adding green food coloring. You can also use green Candy Melts if you have some on hand.
Spoon enough melted chocolate into the mold to make a thin coating. Spread it with a spoon as needed. You want there to be enough to completely cover the mold, leaving enough room for the cake pop filling.
Hint: once you spread the chocolate, hold the mold up to the light to see if there are any areas that look too thin and need more chocolate.
Put the mold in the freezer for a few minutes while the chocolate hardens.
Once the chocolate is hard, take your cake pop filling and press it into the mold, filling it up almost to the edges. I used Radiant Red Funfetti cake mix. It makes the center this bright red that looks pretty creepy when you’re biting into candy shaped like a frog.
Once you’ve filled the molds with cake pop filling, take your chocolate (you may need to reheat it) and cover the filling.
Put the mold back in the freezer for a few more minutes. Once the chocolate hardens, pop the chocolate frogs out of the mold and enjoy!
Whether you’re looking to celebrate your inner nerd with a Harry Potter party or just need a toad-ally awesome addition to your Halloween festivities, these chocolate frogs are a must.
Sorry if the frog puns make you want to croak.
Clearly, I can’t control myself.
