I just got done making these in preparation for a Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets party this friday. My kids were standing at my side the entire time begging for one. I gave this recipe 5 stars based on ease of preparation and how novel they are. Absolutely perfect! Thank you for the recipe!
I didn't want to bring the rating down in case I was the reason this recipe didn't work so well. I couldn't get the chocolate to be smooth enough at first, so I added more margarine until it became a better consistency, but I still couldn't "paint" it on as smoothly as I had imagined it to be. I figure that might be because it was chocolate chips instead of something like dipping chocolate. Well, they taste good, and I ended up covering the underside with chocolate so the upperside helped them still look like frogs. I also added chocolate eyes to the frogs. They are still cute, just not the way I imagined them to be. I also think that my use of margarine might have been my problem in this recipe. Maybe butter works and margarine doesn't. Wouldn't be the first time that was true.
