Lego Party–Part 2 (Lego Crayons, Lego Chocolates & Cupcakes)

We are full on Lego Domination at the house right now!  I’m trying this year to have everything done possible early!  I spent my weekend making lego men and blocks in crayon.  I then made some cupcakes for Cole’s class room with chocolate lego men on top.  Then the gift bags I made for the party, he requested I make for his class room too.  Another trip to get crayons and I was ready to go!

Lego Crayons:

  • Lego Molds (I bought mine on Ebay)
  • Crayons (I bought mine at the dollar store, easy to peel paper off)

Turn oven to 350 (the site I got this from said 250 but that didn’t do a dent for me).  Once molds are the ready put it in the oven the lego men took my oven 12 minutes and the bricks (which had TWO crayons instead of ONE like the men) took my oven 16 minutes.  I put the molds on a cookie sheet in the oven.  When I pulled them out I let them cool a minute before touching the silicone and putting it in the freezer to firm up.  I only had two molds and had a lot to do so I did the freezer you could use the fridge if not in a hurry.

I know that is all you need!  NOW it takes time to peel off the paper off the crayons I found the dollar store ones came off so much nicer then the Crayola ones I tried.  (ONE tip when taking the crayons out of the mold flip it from the back and push the head out FIRST they will break off).

We made Lego Men:

Then time to make the gift bags. You will need:

  • Plastic treat bags (again at the dollar store – 40 bags $1)
  • Paper straw filler (Dollar store)
  • Insert two Lego Men and one Lego Block

Yup EACH gift bag only cost me around .35 cents!  A HECK load of time but so worth it!

Then for my cupcakes for the classroom I decided to make Chocolate Lego Men.  You need:

  • Lego Mold (Ebay)
  • White Melty (Winco Bulk Section $2.98 a lb)
  • Food Coloring

Melt your chocolate I did mine in my glass pampered chef bowl for 1 minute and 30 seconds.  REMEMBER chocolate can melt so watch it.  Once melted put in your mold.  You can put in the freezer or fridge.  Be careful AGAIN pop the head out first or you will have some headless Lego men.

I made a yellow cake from the Food Network with a orange extract and then a buttercream top top it off.

So there you have it my first set of treats done for the party.  I still have a few left to do, juice boxes, Lego Man Cake & Lego Block Cakes.  I’ll be bringing you more fun ideas this week and after.  Just remember that this all takes time and a little patience.  Be careful and don’t loose your head like this little guy … lol I couldn’t resist.
