So who loves Lego?? I think I've said it a million times but we've definitely got lego freaks living here. Lego, lego (lego) and more lego. Apparently we just can't get enough. We have hundreds of minifigs around the house, we could populate a country with minifigs. That's either amazing or pretty sad (depending on your perspective!)
And I've made mini edible lego guys like a gagillion times too. My goal is to use as many different foods as possible to get 110% out of my silicone ice cube mold!
These guys are are made out of vanilla pudding. But you can also make them from candy melt or yogurt too. The only ingredients used for these little dudes are a box of vanilla pudding, some food coloring, and a lego minifig mold (I got mine at a Lego store, but you can order them online too). Mix up the instant pudding, separate into bowls, tint with coloring, and "pipe" into mold.
If you get really ambitious, you can go for the real lego dude feel by changing the colors for the shirt and pants.
The process is basically the same as described here for making these guys - except replace the candy melt with the tinted pudding. Then freeze well (at least a couple hours). You can definitely just keep it simple and use solid colors - tastes the same!
Just eat them fast!
You could even use other ice cube trays or molds for this and change it up by using other pudding flavors.
What other food can I can make Lego men out of??! If you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments!
