kids in the forest eating chocolate and turning into wood animals

Hi thanks for helping!

saw this on tv as a kid, year 2000’s. guess it was american but actually no clue if it wasnt. in color

I watched this movie as a child, only remebering this scene (maybe cus I skip channels cus this scene is pretty damn scary!)
I remember watching a group of kids going into the woods, there is one protagonist and I think a friend of his, but the rest of the kids find a chocolate bar (from a tree??) and starts to eat it. then they transform into forest animals (each a different one- rabbit, fox…) it was really scary as a kid.

the forest was dark.

I remember feeling very scared as the scene goes on, as if something is terribly wrong but you dont know what until later on.

pretty sure it was 90’s, cus they were using animal costumes and not computer generated cgi.

I think after this the animals starts a feast?  finding maybe a festival of some sorts? full of forest animals. but cant remember if I mixed up this into with somehting else.

thanks so much for whoever finds this movie! ive been fascinated with this for years but couldnt find anything!
also my twin sister remembers the exact same scene but niether of us managed to find it.

  1. Nya, Ok, I have to admit that I’m intrigued. I’m going to ask you some questions to see if I can get some more information and facilitate the search.

    Do you remember what channel that movie was broadcast on? Do you remember if it was day or night? How many children were in that group? Was the child protagonist and his friend saved or transformed as well? What did they look like? How did they react to the transformations? Do you have the feeling that it was a horror movie or was it a family movie with a disturbing scene? Was there an adult nearby who could remember any more information? Or maybe your sister remembers some other details.

    It’s not “The Witches” (1990), right? It’s the first movie I’ve thought about because the child protagonist and his friend turn into mice, one of them after eating a haunted chocolate (although it only coincides in the transforming chocolate thing)
