Choc ices in November? We don’t mind what time of year it is we love a choc ice so we were delighted to receive Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker to review from Flair PLC, they also sent us chocolate and sprinkles yay!
Inside the box is;
1 igloo, 1 mould, 6 plastic reusable lolly sticks and instructions.
“Make your own Choc ice with Mr Frost, the coolest guy around! This kit comes with everything to create your own Mr Frosty and Penguin frozen chocolate figures
After washing all the items and popping to the shop for some yoghurt, we just bought a big pot of strawberry Onken yoghurt, the kids were wanting the lollies, especially my son Zander who hasn’t grasped the fact that they need to freeze first.
It was so easy to do and took literally a few minutes. We placed the lolly sticks so they sat in the grooves of the mould and then spooned the yoghurt into the mould once filled up we tapped the mould to get any air bubbles out of it. Then placed it in the freezer for a few hours until frozen.
Once they were properly frozen we melted the chocolate which was put in the igloo in the microwave, the instructions gave a certain amount of time to melt the chocolate, we have a high power microwave and it took longer to melt than it said.
Fully melted we dipped the Mr Frosty yoghurt lollies in the chocolate but we found that the chocolate would not stick to it very well so had to spoon it on.
We left the lollies to stand and set a bit before putting back in the freezer but to be honest they looked like chocolate blobs rather than Mr Frosty or Penguin but I don’t think the kids minded.
They tried them and absolutely loved them. What I particularly liked was the fact I made them with a fat-free yoghurt so it was much healthier for them and as they liked them it was a win-win situation.
There are lots of options with making Mr Frosty Choc Ices, using milk chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate covering. Banana yoghurt with toffee pieces for decoration or even milk chocolate covering the rolling it in crushed up cereal. But do you know how my kids like them? Plain yoghurt, that is all, no extras, they can see the face of Mr Frosty and Penguin when they are plain and they love the yoghurt as it has strawberry pieces in it.
I will be trying lots of different flavours of yoghurt, raspberry, apricot, peach, toffee. So they get a variety of lollies to try.
Overall I like the concept of this but was disappointed that when covered with chocolate they didn’t look like the characters BUT this did not affect the taste or anything as it was purely visual and once the kids are sucking on it, it isn’t going to look like the character for long anyway. They look best when just a yoghurt lolly visually.
I would recommend the Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker due to the fact my kids love it.
It is available in most toy shops and supermarkets right now, and is also available online at George, Very and Smyths Toys priced at around £12.99 and it is suitable for ages 5+
