These Chocolate Frogs may not have one good jump in them, but they are definitely magical! Delicious chocolate filled with caramel and pecans will excite all of your party guests!

packed brown sugar
light corn syrup
sweetened condensed milk
half a can
pure vanilla extract
For the Caramel Filling:
Heat butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and sweetened condensed milk in a heavy saucepan over Medium-High heat.
Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Continue cooking and stirring until a candy thermometer reaches 248 degrees, about 30 minutes.
Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. Set aside.
To make the Chocolate Frogs:
Place chocolate in a large bowl and heat in the microwave for 1 minute on HIGH. Stir, then continue cooking and stirring in 15 second intervals until chocolate is melted and smooth.
Spoon a small amount of chocolate into each cavity.
Use a "clean or brand new" paint brush to paint the chocolate up the sides to thoroughly coat the inside. Tap on the counter to remove air bubbles.
Place in the refrigerator for 5 to 10 minutes until set.
Add a few chopped pecans to each cavity.
Carefully spoon caramel into each cavity to cover the pecans. You don't want to overfill or "mound" the caramel. You want it to come up just under the edge.
Don't panic if you overfill them. Remove some if you can with a clean spoon. Top off each cavity with additional melted chocolate.
Place back in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to set. Remove and tap out onto work surface. You may need to twist the mold a bit and use your fingers to push the frogs out.
Run a small, sharp knife around the edge of the frogs to trim off the excess chocolate.
I have cut my regular caramel recipe in half to make a small batch of Chocolate Frogs. Feel free to double the caramel filling and make a larger batch, or make
