Fidget toys are so hot right now, loads of kids in Adelaide schools etc seem to have them. What a craze!

We found another fun use for those [slightly annoying but ever consuming] trending pop it figit toys. Use them as a chocolate mould! Look, we are not going to claim it as our own idea, but we did have to give it a crack when we came accross it online, and we are pretty chuffed with the results.

What a fun school holidays idea!

What you will need:

One or more pop it figits, washed in warm soapy water, rinsed and dry. [We like to buy from Adelaide business Digit Fidgits]

A block of your favourite chocolate

Enough M&M’s to fill as many pop it holes as you desire [I mean how many is ‘enough’ when you are a kid? Go the party sized bag.]

Microwave proof jug or dish to melt your choccy – oh yeah and a microwave, although honestly we don’t have one and melted our chocolate over a water bath, same same – what ever spins your wheel.

Rubber scraper or spoon

Instructions:

Put an M&M in each hole of your pop it. You could also use nuts or sprinkles, we found smarties too big.

If you have OCD like we do, the M&M logo needs to face down so as you can see it when you turn the chocolates out of the mould.

Melt you choccy of choice. Remeber slowly slowly with chocolate. Try 20 second bursts in the microwave and stir in between.

Tip melted chocolate over the M&M’s in the mould, smooth it over / level it off

Place in fridge 30 mins +

Carefully turn out your chocolate rows and consume immeadiately. Best enjoyed by fighting siblings, especially when there is an odd number of chocolate rows.

God speed.

*Yes yes, we know this is not healthy, but it’s fun, and for a birthday party or a svhool holiday treat. Thank you in advance to all of the people who take the time to point this out to us. Erry time.
