The Amazing Chocolate Workshop has used luxury Italian chocolate to craft a full-size vintage Nikon SLR camera that you can actually own… and eat.

The camera is solid chocolate and was said to require an “insane amount of time to craft, delivering massive levels of intricate detail worthy of a true design classic.” Features include “incredible plastic casing texture effect, ultra-fine aperture lines and intricate dial and winder detail.” They make it seem like it was crafted entirely by hand, but the use of a mold from an actual camera seems more likely.

The only downside, aside from the fact that it doesn’t actually take pictures, is that it looks like a real camera that was salvaged from a shipwreck. Check out additional pics below. [click to continue…]

Paul Joachim with The Chocolate Genius made this toothsome tribute to the greatest Starfleet engineer of all-time.

Sure, this edible bust of Montgomery Scott from Star Trek might look like it’s made from bronze, but it’s actually made from chocolate! Joachim made the sculpture for the Cake: The Final Frontier collaboration, which celebrates Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary. Check out additional pics below. [click to continue…]

Twitter user Lauren Rincon got a surprise recently when she discovered that her niece had eaten her Too Faced Chocolate Bar eyeshadow because it smelled like candy. Judging from the amount consumed, it also seems that the toddler didn’t seem to mind what was no doubt a terrible flavor.

Needless to say, the Twitterverse exploded with comments of concern. After calls to the manufacturer and poison control, Lauren assured everyone that the little girl is fine. The makeup, however, is another story and required “a million q-tips & napkins” to be partially salvaged. Watch the drama unfold below. [click to continue…]

Cafe DALA 100%-CHOCOLATE in Busan, South Korea has taken food art to a whole new level with their giant chocolate dinosaur egg dessert.

The chocolate egg is positioned on top of a nest of shaved chocolate ice cream and contains a chocolate dinosaur sitting atop a chocolate ice cream yolk mound.

Chocolate, uh, finds a way.

Getting inside the egg can be accomplished via two methods: pouring warm chocolate syrup over it in order to melt the shell, or simply cracking it open with a silver mallet.

See how it’s done in the videos below.

Imagine it: an Eggspresso paired with toast slathered in Creme Egg Cashew Nut Butter.

I couldn’t handle it.

However, I’ll admit that the Eggspresso (espresso shots served in hollow chocolate eggs) does look pretty fantastic. The drink has become popular in Australia and is available in select coffee shops around the globe.

Behold it’s magnificence in the video below.

Chocolate-1440x900

The Universal Orlando Blog has revealed plans to bring an unofficial, but definitely Willy Wonka-inspired restaurant to CityWalk sometime “later this year”.

The Toothsome Chocolate Factory will transport you into a 19th century-inspired Steampunk chocolate factory. You’ll indulge your appetite amidst towering smoke stacks, funky gadgetry, and staff wearing unique Steampunk fashion.

As cool as that sounds, the food looks like it will be even better…

Britain has created a handmade dark chocolate teapot that can be used to create fondue or “a thick hot chocolate drink when filled with hot water and cocoa powder”.

Weighing in at 600g (empty) and sporting a gloss finish, the chocolate teapot is currently available for pre-order with an expected release later this month. However, since it’s only available in the UK, we’ll have to hope that someone in the states draws some inspiration and creates a chocolate coffeepot.

Hello, gentle reader! Apologies, I’m just on the phone with my editor, won’t be a mo. Yes. Yeah, no, I’ll cover the chocolate Cumberbatch bunnies, absolutely. No, I wasn’t planning on getting any sleep tonight anyway, so… yeah. Great. Chat later.

Alright, sorry to keep you. So! Some bright spark has made chocolate bunnies with… with Benedict Cumberbatch heads! Because that’s a thing the world needed, apparently (just like we needed this). Certainly it’s not something directly lifted out of one of the fever dreams I had when I was down with the flu earlier this week, haha. What an oddly specific image that would be, ha ha ha.

Ha ha.

This Super Mario egg made by The Truffle Cottage has gold coins, white chocolate crisps, and either a Super mushroom or a Level Up mushroom in the flavor of raspberry cheesecake.

Unfortunately, they won’t grant you any super abilities—unless you count Sugar Rush Energy.
