I have no idea who came up with this idea, but I love it. These are tools. Made of chocolate. Each one is made of Belgian chocolate and looks convincingly realistic.

Not gonna lie, I think it would be fun to put real tools in the mix and see what happens when people bite into them, but I’m evil.

We previously featured a life-size chocolate Benedict Cumberbatch that was made by UKTV to launch its new drama-focused station. Once they built Chocobatch, they decided to conduct a little experiment.

They called it the “Chocolate Cumberbatch Temptation Experiment” and it involved putting the masterpiece in a mall and telling people they were welcome to give it a taste. A whole bunch of people took them up on their offer, breaking off fingers and taking a few licks. He’s a chocolate statue sitting unwrapped in a mall, people. That’s just, ew.

Once upon a time, there was only the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. It came in one shape and one size and that was all. Now there are big ones, small ones, hearts, pumpkins, and even eggs. If you’re looking for the most peanut butter bang for your buck, redditor Rustid has broken it all down. He measured:

Large Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs
Reese’s Peanut Butter Hearts
Reese’s Pumpkin
Reese’s King Size
Reese’s Snack Size
Reese’s Small Heart
Reese’s Miniature
Reese’s Mini

He took each apart with a scalpel and then used a ruler and a scale to figure out just how much peanut butter was in each candy.

See more pictures and the chart with the results after the break.

The world is a happier place just for the fact that this exists. It’s a life-size Benedict Cumberbatch made out of 500 chocolate bars that clock in at 6′ tall and 88 pounds. UKTV made the hollow Chocobatch to help launch its new station which focuses on dramas.

He won out over David Tennant, Idris Elba, Sean Bean, and Damian Lewis in a poll to see who would be made into a chocolate statue. Chocobatch was made by a team of eight people who were aiming to capture his red carpet look.

easter bunny jello shots

Easter isn’t really Easter until you slurp vodka-infused Jell-O out of a chocolate bunny head right? Sounds like the beginning of a wholesome new tradition to me.

If you’d like to learn how to make these shots, head on over to Oh Bite It!

dark-chocolate-megalodon-shark-tooth

Finally, the perfect treat for fans of sharks and chocolate. These chocolate Megalodon teeth are cast from actual fossil teeth and come in high quality dark, milk, and white chocolate.

That’s a serious sweet tooth. I’d take it over a chocolate bunny any day.

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.

Butterfinger bars are delicious, but they’re not exactly healthy. I mean, all that sugar aside, chocolates like these are generally loaded with artificial ingredients—including food dyes and preservatives. However, Nestlé USA is planning on removing these unnatural elements from its chocolate products by the end of this year. Over 250 Nestle chocolate products, ranging from Butterfinger bars to Baby Ruth and 100 Grand bars, will be affected by this change.
