kit-kat sandwich 1

Nick of Dude Foods is known for his weird food combinations, and I think the latest one takes the grand prize for being bizarre. He coated and deep fried two KitKat candy bars and then used them instead of bread for a grilled cheese sandwich. Yes, you read that right, it’s a deep fried KitKat bar grilled cheese sandwich. He claims it’s tasty:

Honestly, looking back at it right now it doesn’t even look that appetizing, but let me tell you, it was pretty damn good!

No, it doesn’t look appealing, and I’ll have to take his word that it’s edible because I don’t foresee putting that creation into my mouth anytime soon.

espresso-shot

Why would you drink your espresso out of a small cup if you have the option of sipping it from a waffle cone rimmed with chocolate? It’s not even a choice. This delicious combination comes from Alfred Coffee & Kitchen in Los Angeles and costs around $8 or $9. It may not be the kind of thing you want to toss back every single morning, but the waffle cone espresso would be a nice treat.

chocolate bathroom 1

Bathroom sweets aren’t the same as bathroom suites, but consumers don’t always use the correct word when they search on Bathrooms.com. The CEO of the company, Ian Monk, said they decided answer searches for “bathroom sweets” with a literal interpretation. They worked with Choccywoccydoodah to make an entire bathroom suite with Belgian chocolate fixtures. It’s packed with calories (an estimated 9.4 million of them) and is actually being sold online for $133,000 at Bathroom Sweets.

The chocolate set comes with a tub, toilet, sink, and bidet, and the components are available separately. If kept at room temperature, the chocolate pieces supposedly have a six month shelf life. In case it’s not clear, you are not actually supposed to use them – only eat them.

chocolate lego 1

Want to build a LEGO castle out of your food? Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi has achieved that dream by designing edible chocolate LEGO bricks. He fashioned several molds – most likely from silicone – for melted chocolate, and once the pieces cool, they look and function exactly like LEGO bricks. Just imagine the dessert possibilities. I wish I could order the molds!

Chocolate Mill

The Chocolate Mill is the brainchild of chocolatier Rafael Mutter, Dutch architect and furniture designer Gerrit Rietveld, and Studio Wieki Somers. 10 layers of cocoa-based confection were filled with flavored patterns, then shaved away incrementally with a crank-turned blade. It’s a display of food and artful science that can be appreciated by all.

A video of the Chocolate Mill in operation can be found after the break.

If you’re a fan of colorful, candy-like jewelry, then you’ll definitely dig Onch‘s work. The Los Angeles accessories designer has a knack for creating bright, showy jewelry, and he has a celebrity following too (Nikki Minaj wore his rainbow swirl cone necklace to the 2011 VMAs). Recently, Sweet Los Angeles, a candy boutique, released a a special candy bar that was designed by Onch. The Monchie bar features delicious white chocolate and it’s chock full of gummy bears, Sour Patch Kids and Fruity Pebbles cereal. It honestly looks like a work of art.

Designer Matthew Hirsch came up with a unique and rather clever way to make his resumé stand out. He created this “Hirschy” chocolate bar that features a list of his qualifications instead of the ingredients. Yeah, this guy’s definitely going to land whatever gig he applies for.

chocolate-skulls-4

Believe it or not, this skull is actually a chocolate replica. Etsy seller BlackChocolateCo crafts anatomically correct replica skulls that weigh roughly three pounds and are made from the chocolate of your choice. Alas, Poor Yorick will likely melt in your hand so best keep him in the fridge.

Ok, let me break this down for you. Pictured above is a chocolate chip cookie bowl that’s made from one giant cookie and it’s filled with chocolate chip cookies.

Mind blown yet? Yeah, me too.

Foodie and blogger Beth Klosterboer made the chocolate chip cookie bowl by covering a bowl in cookie dough and then baking the whole thing. Then she filled said cookie bowl with more cookies. Genius.

If you’d like to learn more about this delicious bowl, head on over to Beth’s blog, Hungry Happenings.

Wow, I’m so glad I live in the 21st century. Sure, we might not have hover cars yet, but at least the world finally has chocolate etched with rainbow holograms!

The holograms weren’t made using any sort of added chemicals—they were actually created using a unique etching process that was developed by a Swiss design company, Morphotonix, and a German chocolate mould manufacturer.

Basically, the holograms are made by carving detailed microstructures onto a metal master mould, which is then used to make softer plastic moulds. Chocolate is poured into those plastic moulds, and the resulting etches carve specific microstructures that can defract light (security holograms on credit cards work in a similar fashion).

The process works with both milk and dark chocolate. Morphotonix began developing the hologram tech back in 2012, but there isn’t any word on when these chocolates or the moulds will be made available to the public.
