I found this tutorial on Pinterest that teaches you how to make Sorting Hat caramels. It is a video tutorial so it's nice to watch and work at the same time. I was very pleased with my first attempt at making them.
-1 bag of Brach's Milk Maid Caramels. Each hat uses 2 caramels.
-tooth pick or small skewer
My other favorite treat to make is Chocolate Frogs.
1-2 Plastic Frog Molds ( I purchased a frog candy mold from Amazon.com. The mold I purchased makes 8 frogs at a time.)
Microwave safe mixing bowl
One 12 oz. package of semi-sweet chocolate chips or a 12 oz. package of white chocolate chips
rice krispie cereal
We melted the chocolate in the microwave. Check and stirring every 15-30 seconds until smooth and melted.
I used cooking spray to coat the molds. Then we spooned melted chocolate into the molds. I gently tapped the molding tray on the counter to remove any air bubbles.
After the molds were filled. We placed them in the refrigerator to cool. Once they were completely cooled, we popped them out of the mold.
We made another batch using the white chocolate chips and some fruity pebbles cereal for some extra color. We played around with the texture on these. We tried crushing the cereal and sprinkled it in the molds. Then we did more, where we crushed the cereal and add it to the melted chocolate.
The final result was a plate of chocolate frogs that any wizard would be happy to snack on.
