If you do don’t remember to pamper your inner child every once in a while, you might end up feeling low, ragged, straight-faced and grumpy from all that dreary work, the constantly increasing lists of need-tos and have-tos, and no time to play. And as we all know, the simplest way to cheer up your inner kid and keep depression at bay is to gobble up some chocolate. But while you’re at it, you might as well be creative and have some fun, even if it’s just to spite the echoes of elders’ warnings about table manners and playing with your food.
And with the latest chocolate assortment already available on the global market, you are even further encouraged to play around your plate: crafted by Japanese designer Akihiro Mizuuchi, the edible LEGO chocolates help awaken your creativity, stir your inner child into action and play with building blocks regardless of your age – plus they taste delicious, too.
Made from white, dark, milk and pink chocolate, Mizuuchi’s edible LEGO blocks look true to form and are absolutely functional, so you can build away for hours – robots, cars, apartment blocks, walls and the like – before you decide to tidy up your sweet mess and wolf your chocolate LEGOs down.
The Japanese creator behind the tasty toy set managed to preserve the shape and features of the real-life LEGO bricks with the help of an innovative modular system: first, melted chocolate is poured into precisely designed moulds to form the LEGO block contours, and allowed some time to cool off. Once the chocolate block patterns solidify, each delicious-tasting brick can be popped out and used just as any regular LEGO play set.
Whether you want to use your choco-LEGOs for play or eat them all up straightaway, Mizuuchi’s crafty moulds will prove a convenient and original extra in your kitchen set. Just make sure you remember not to leave your edible construction directly exposed to high heats – or else you will end up with some tasty chocolate puddles on your carpet, floor or tabletops.
