Everyone knows the original Mr Frosty, the snowman whos tummy you had to turn to produce ice chips, which you then coated with flavouring to make your own snow cones. Well, Mr Frosty has a new addition to the family in the form of a choc ice maker!
Within each kit you get an igloo, which acts as a melt pot for the chocolate and lolly holder, plastic reusable sticks, lolly mold and instructions.
You start by slotting the sticks into place in the mold, this is simple to do and thankfully there are sections that hold each of the sticks in place while the yogurt hardens.
The yogurt is then spooned into the mold to create the snowmen, now, if you are sensible you would use greek or natural yogurt….we however used Muller Turkish Delight low fat and it crystalised too much – oops!
Look at that little face! He tasted delicious though and to be honest I could eat these ones without chocolate on just as part of my Slimming World diet! I am not sure if it was the low fat content or that they were to be eaten that day but for some reason we just couldn’t get them to solidify smoothly.
The chocolate (not included) is melted and held in the igloo which the girls loved, it was like a real little melt pot. The lollies are dipped into the melted chocolate until coated.
We couldn’t get the chocolate to cover enough so that you could see the snowman features and i think this would be pretty hard to do as the chocolate goes solid on contact!
We did however make some solid chocolate snowmen too which the girls loved and these went down a treat too. This is a great kit and we can think of loads of different things that the girls want to make including fresh fruit lollies and they want to try some fizzy cola ones too.
Overall a huge success and although they didn’t look a lot like snowmen the girls loved the flavour of the choc ices and we would definitely try again with another make of yogurt.
