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.

These beautiful chocolate bars look like they’ve been splattered with paint and melted crayons, but they’re still perfectly safe for you to eat. They’re designs created by chocolate maker Unelefante who puts as much of a focus on artistry as they do quality. You can purchase them directly from their site in packs of three.

carl zombie easter bunny

Carl Grimes from The Walking Dead is constantly missing, but a few days ago he could be found posing with a chocolate zombie bunny. Chandler Riggs posed with the gross looking Easter treat, and it’s all too appropriate. I’m sure it tastes much better than it looks, and if he’s like most of us, he probably bit the head off in no time at all.

Buy a chocolate zombie bunny of your own at ThinkGeek!

box-of-chocolates-resume

Graphic designer Rob Jervis was on the hunt for a new job, and he’d gone with the standard approach first. He emailed his resume to a bunch of different companies and applied for a number of positions. But unfortunately, no one got back to him. So, Rob switched up his game and tried a different angle of attack–a far sweeter approach, you might say: He redesigned his resume into a box and he filled it with homemade Oreo truffles, amaretto ganache and peanut butter cups.

Jervis told Creative Bloq the following about his resume chocolate boxes:

I handed these out to numerous top design and advertising companies in London and in Cambridge. Within an hour or two of receiving these, reputable companies were emailing me with the offer of paid internships and interviews and it was only 2 or 3 that didn’t reply.

Thanks to his innovative design, Rob was able to score an internship at LFH, which then led to a full-time position. Way to think outside the box. Or inside the box. Whatever.
