If you are like me, you would want LEGO to be involved in almost everything you do. So, why not make LEGO chocolate?!
LEGO actually has a whole line of kitchen supplies for making food fun and interesting for LEGO fans (or finicky eaters). In this tutorial I will show you how to make some yummy LEGO chocolate minifigures. You will see how easy it is! And a bit messy too, which just adds to the fun!
There are a couple of ways you can make LEGO chocolate; either using a Ziploc-bag and microwave, or using a double-boiler.
If you are using the Ziploc-bag method here is the list of things you will need to make your first LEGO chocolate minifigs:
- Six ounces of chocolate, or chocolate-chips
- LEGO ice-cube tray
Here is how to make LEGO chocolate minifigures:
- First, put the chocolate in the Ziploc-bag and seal it
- Put the bag in the microwave for 30 seconds
- Cut the end-corner of the bag just a little bit once the chocolate is fully melted
- Squeeze the bag to pipe the chocolate into the LEGO ice-cube tray molds
- If needed use a butter-knife to scrape off any extra chocolate
- Put the LEGO ice-cube tray in the fridge/freezer (the freezer works better) for half an hour or so
If you are using the double-boiler method, all you need is the same amount of chocolate, and a double-boiler to melt down the chocolate to a nice and runny consistency. Then just pour or pipe the melted chocolate into the LEGO ice-cube tray and freeze or refrigerate as mentioned above.
I made a bunch of these LEGO chocolate minifigs for a party at my church and when people saw them they were like “Oh, what is that?”, and I told them it is chocolate LEGO. The people at the party ate them all – except two that I kept for myself.
SPECIAL TIP: I recommend using a mix of half peanut-butter chips and half chocolate-chips to make your LEGO chocolate even yummier!
So sorry, my LEGO chocolate minifigures kinda melted before I had a chance to take some pictures, but here is an excellent photo by justJENN from justJENN Recipes showing what they suppose to look like:
Hope you like my LEGO chocolate recipe, and since this is my first post here as a TFOL (teen-fan-of-LEGO) guest-blogger, I would appreciate if you let me know what you think. Also if you have any fun LEGO recipes to share you can post them in the comment section below. Thank you!
If you don’t yet have any LEGO ice-cube trays, you can pick some up at LEGO’s online shop (here is the link: LEGO Ice-Cube Tray) or on Amazon. They are not expensive and are really fun!
