A chocolate dinosaur lollipop is a great idea, but a giant chocolate dinosaur lollipop is a brilliant idea. It was designed by Insructables user Malikivan who originally made it for his girlfriend because she “likes chocolate and dinosaurs”.

Makes sense to us.

He started off the project by making sketches before importing them into Z-brush for final detailing. The dinosaur was milled from a piece of foam using a CNC-milling machine and then turned into a mold using a thermo vacuum machine and a 1 mm thick sheet of plastic. The mold was filled with 1.8 kg of chocolate and the stick is actually a piece of 20 mm PVC pipe.

Hard boiled eggs usually have the white on the outside with a yolk at their centers, but this video shows you how to reverse that so the yolk is on the outside. It looks freaky and would be an awesome trick for Easter. The video is in Japanese but it shows you what you need to know. The trick is to wrap the egg in a sock and spin it quickly to make the yolk flow to the outside of the shell before you put it in to boil.
