I just love these tasty chocolate lego figures. They are not just for kids either, they are a perfect treat for any lego fan out there.
Everything is awesome when you are eating chocolate legos! Seriously how can you go wrong with these? It is the perfect way to eat chocolate. And they are so incredibly easy to make. If I can do it, you can do it. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Gather the ingredients and tool
In order to make these creative chocolate lego figures you will need the following ingredients and tools:
- Chocolate – You can use whatever kind of chocolate that you want, I like to use candy melts because they come in all different colors.
- Nuts – Add some almonds, peanuts, or walnuts to make them “healthy” haha. They are optional of course.
- Chocolate Lego Figures Molds – There really isn’t a substitute for this, thankfully the molds are pretty cheap. Some bundles even come with lego brick molds as well.
- Toothpick or bamboo skewer – Used to paint on the face.
- Parchment paper – Used to make dividers so you can make the head a different color.
Step 2: How to make chocolate lego figures
Begin by cutting up little strips of parchment paper. They need to be small enough to be able to fit in the lego figure mold so it can be a divider between the head and the body. Of course if you don’t care if the head and the body are the same color then it doesn’t matter you can skip this part.
Also melt the chocolate that you want to use for the bodies. You can melt it in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl, using bursts of 25 seconds and stirring, until melted. Or you can use the double boiler method on the stovetop.
Step 3: Filling the lego figure molds with chocolate
Now use a spoon or piping bag and add chocolate to the body of the lego mold. You can add chopped nuts too if you like. Isn’t it cool how the parchment paper keeps the body separate from the head?
Now just fill the rest of the body up with chocolate until it reaches the top and is level. Give it a gentle tap to allow the chocolate to settle.
Next, place the Lego mold with the melted chocolate into the fridge and allow the chocolate to set for 25 to 30 minutes.
Once the mold comes out of the fridge, gently remove the parchment paper dividers. Then melt a different color of candy melt or chocolate and spoon or pipe it in for the head. Yellow is a classic yellow head color, but again you can do whatever color or kind that you want.
Once you are done adding all the heads, back into the fridge they go so the head can set.
Step 4: Paint on the Lego faces
Once the chocolate has set, you can remove the molds from the fridge and carefully remove the chocolate lego figures from the molds.
Then take a toothpick or bamboo skewer and dip it into some melted chocolate and paint on some eyes and a mouth to all the figures. Place them back in the fridge so the face can set and then they are ready to go! Pretty simple right?
These little treats are the perfect dessert to serve at a lego themed birthday party. You could even have them along side of this Lego Man Cake. Kids love these things!
How long do chocolate lego figures last?
If you keep them stored in the fridge they will last several weeks. But they normally get eaten by then.
Here are some other cake recipes you may like:
Chocolate Lego Figures
- Lego Figure Molds
- Toothpicks or bamboo skewers
- parchment paper
- Piping bags or plastic bags (optional)
- 1 cup chocolate, any kind you want, candy melts work great 175g
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds, optional 35g
- First cut up parchment paper into little tiny rectangles that will fit in the lego figure mold. It needs to separate the head from the body. Place those in the mold for each lego figure.
- Now melt the chocolate, candy melts, etc. in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave with bursts of 25 seconds and then stirring. Or do it using the double boiler method on the stovetop. Pour the melted chocolate into the body part of each mold. The parchment paper will keep it from getting to the head.
- Next, place the mold in the fridge and allow the chocolate to set, this will take about 30 minutes.
- Remove them from the fridge and gently pull out the parchment paper. Then melt another color of chocolate and use a piping bag or spoon to put the chocolate in the head area of the mold. If you are filling up the smaller sized lego figure molds, a piping bag or plastic bag with the corner snipped off is ideal for pouring the chocolate.
- Once the head parts are filled up, place the completed mold back in the fridge so the chocolate head can set.
- Remove them from the fridge and gently remove the chocolate figures from the mold and place them on a platter, plate, etc. You can leave them like this, but it is more fun to put on the faces. Melt a little bit of dark or milk chocolate and then dip a toothpick or bamboo skewer in it, then draw on the eyes and the mouths.
- Place them back in the fridge for 15 minutes to allow the faces to set. Then serve them up. Enjoy!
