Lego Party: Favors, Part 2

If you saw the Lego Party Favors, Part 1 post, you know we bought two of these adorable Lego Minifigure ice cube trays…which we have yet to use for ice!  We used the first one to make some super-cool crayons, then used the second one for…chocolate!!
Little Crafter, inexplicably, doesn’t like chocolate at all, but Mommy and Daddy sure do and so do many of our party guests.  So, here’s how we made some favors that are sure to be a hit!
CHOCOLATE LEGO MINIFIGURES
You’ll need:
chocolate melting wafers or candy melts 
Lego Minifigure mold
Step 1: Melt chocolate according to package directions.  Of course, I bought some store brand ones that didn’t have directions.  So, I melted the wafers at 50% power in a coffee mug in the microwave for 50-60 seconds.
Step 2: Spoon melted chocolate into mold.

Step 3 {optional}: Place in refrigerator or freezer to speed up the re-hardening process. 
It didn’t take long at all for them to harden in the fridge, which was great since I could only make eight at a time!

Step 4: Carefully remove from the mold.
For some reason, these guys were much easier to get out than the crayons were.  I only broke one.  We used one bag of milk chocolate wafers and one bag of dark; each bag made around 35 figures.

Aren’t they adorable?!  They’re like cute little soldiers in a big army of deliciousness!  I think they’d be super cute with colored candy melts too, but I didn’t want there to be any confusion about which of the favors were edible and which ones weren’t…as it is, one of my good bloggy buddies already told me she wants to take a bite of the crayons {ahem…Adrianne…}.

My one tip would be to make sure you push the melted chocolate down into the mold really well to make sure the feet, arms, and head are well filled in.  I had a few come out with war wounds, like this guy who ended up with half a head…

I simply can’t justify giving that to a party-goer, now can I?  Whatever shall I do with him….

    i use this mold all the time for candy–once you get the chocolate in, tap the entire mold hard on the counter, that usually fills in the holes or pops the air bubbles! (finally figured that out :)
