choc

This dress was made for Chocolate Week UK and, as you might have guessed, it’s made entirely of chocolate. Caroline McCall, wardrobe designer for Downton Abbey, created this tasty wonder in an Art Deco style over the course of three months using 132 pounds of chocolate. It looks incredible, but I’d imagine you’d have to avoid the sun like a vampire or risk it all melting into a pile of goo.

Halloween is just over two weeks away, and if you’re having a party you should start thinking about snacks. This new chocolate mold from ThinkGeek would make a great addition because it has everything you need to make a graveyard scene – even zombies! You can use it for chocolate and also for ice and Jell-O. Anything you can squish into a mold is fair game.

Use the finished zombie and tombstone pieces as cake or cupcake toppers or simply arrange them on top of chocolate cake crumbs in a bowl.

Here’s a new twist on chocolate walnut skull candies that’s sure to put happy grimaces on your guest’s faces this Halloween. It’s the work of illustrators and graphic designers Ruth & Sira who hail from Spain. They’ve used chocolate molds and then added in candy bits and even walnuts to make it look like brains in their Chocolate Skulls Gone Nuts series.

Keigo Atobe is a character from The Prince of Tennis, which is a very popular manga and anime that’s all-about one thing: soccer. Yeah, joking, sorry: it’s all about tennis, of course.

October 4 was Keigo’s “birthday,” and the Japanese snack company Morinaga hosted a super special birthday celebration in honor of the character in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro. The company made an image of Keigo’s face out of Dars chocolate squares, and, according to Twitter user Misz, over 8,600 Dars chocolate squares were used to make the image. Also, tons (and I mean tons) of fans showed up to how their love for the anime character.

Actually, it looks more like a funeral than a birthday party. See more pics after the break…

Capture

It looks like a cake with a lot of chocolate pieces added all over the place, but there’s more to this cake than what you see at first glance. It’s actually an old-fashioned zoetrope that uses the positioning of all the pieces of chocolate combined with flickering lights to make it look like the chocolate is animated when the cake spins.

This particular zoetrope can be found at Phillip Island Chocolate Factory near Melboure, Australia. It’s absolutely mesmerizing to watch.

Emergency-Chocolate-Craft-on-30-Minute-Crafts

There are moments, days, and even weeks when you just need chocolate. Candy can turn things around and make life better. It’s true. Carolina knows this, and she came up with a genius emergency chocolate craft. Basically, you get a shadow box frame, etch “in case of emergency break glass” on the front, and fill it with candy or chocolate. Keep a hammer close by (or better yet, just open it up. M&Ms taste better without the glass).

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!

Check out more pics of the edible building blocks after the break.
