Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker Review

Dear Mummy, it may come as no surprise to you, but daddy is hiding a secret from me. It’s been going on for some time, with wrappers being stuffed down the side of the sofa. My daddy is addicted to Choc Ices. Yes. Choc Ices.

He indulges in these frozen treats whenever he can and at anytime of the year – even through the winter months! Brrrrrrr. The satisfaction of a hard chocolate case cracking and melting in his mouth to reveal ice cream underneath!

So for the first time he was overjoyed at one of the items we were sent to review recently. The Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker! Instead of making them with ice cream and conventional milk/dark chocolate we mixed it up, using frozen fruit yoghurt and white chocolate.

Like giant ice pops, without the waste of wrappers and packaging we can create our own frozen desserts without visiting the supermarket chiller! We love experimenting with flavours and different textures when it comes to food and these are great to play with.

The Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker is aimed at children aged 5+ and allows kids to make their own snowmen and penguin choc ices. We love the detail on the moulds and maybe a summer version of this Choc Ice Maker would be good over the hotter months.

The set comes with an Igloo base and lid, a Mr Frosty and Penguin silicon mould, six choc ice sticks and instructions. It looks pretty sturdy and you can store the ice sticks in the Igloo for good storage. The Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker is available in most toy shops and supermarkets and priced from £12.99 but we’ve also seen it online for cheaper. It would make a fantastic Christmas present this year and save a fortune on shop bought ice pops!

We bought our raspberry yoghurt and chocolate to make our choc ices and a 100g chocolate bar melt perfectly in the Igloo base. We washed all the bits first before using them and placed the choc ice sticks into the mould making sure they fitted in the grooves. We then filled the moulds with yoghurt. It’s really simple to use and the only guessing we did was for how long we needed to freeze the yoghurt.

We had fun filling the moulds and made a bit of a mess but were impressed by how much yoghurt they took when filled. We then placed them flat in the freezer for just over three hours. Before we took them out of the freezer we broke up the chocolate bar and placed the pieces in the base of the igloo and heated gently in the microwave. We used white chocolate first to make snowy snowmen with raspberry inners and decorated some of them with freeze-dried raspberries.

We kept a close eye on the chocolate and made sure we kept stirring until it melted. We used a 900w microwave setting and it roughly took 2 mins to melt fully. We quickly took the frozen mould out of the freezer and the melted chocolate, along with our spoons and got ready to decorate.

We also found it hard to coat our choc ice as the chocolate solidifies fairly quickly, so it might be best to do them one at a time and make sure the melted chocolate it thin and runny in order to show the detail of the design underneath. (Check out our video to see what we mean) The chocolate doesn’t take long to set at all and ours unfortunately didn’t look anything like the box once coated in thick chocolate! It didn’t stop us eating them!

They did taste absolutely amazing! We left one of our choc ices plain with just raspberry yoghurt for a healthy treat but it might be a nice idea incorporating chopped up fruit in the mixture. Our imagination was running wild with all the possibilities we could make. The Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker is definitely a hit and something we’ll be using over the festive period, my mummy is even tempted to make some boozy treats for her and daddy!

  1. I love that last photo, her expression really made me chuckle. I always wanted a Mr Frosty Maker when I was younger and I finally got my hands on one a few years ago when someone bought one for my eldest son and I loved it. This looks amazing, I might have to get one for my daughter.

  2. What a great review and I totally love the last photo of your daughter! Its great when the moulds pop out easily as this is one of the main problem we have when they get stuck or the shape is lost

  3. Oh my gosh, I need one of these so badly! I begged my parents for a Mr frosty ice lolly maker and I never got one, so I may have to relive my childhood through my own kids and get us one of these! I love that you used yoghurt too! They look really tasty.
