His: Saturday Snapshots - Gift from Europe

Today we are linking up with Melinda at West Metro Mommy for Super Saturday Snapshots.

My dad and step mum came to visit us right after Christmas for a few days. We had a lot of fun showing them around and letting them see the sights around where we live. Before coming to visit us they had spent a month in Europe and had found some interesting items in the market including this.

I was a bit baffled as to why they would buy a paint brush and a tube of paint until they explained that it is made out of chocolate. Someone had put a lot of time and effort into making a mold and then painting it with food safe paint to make it look realistic. I had never seen anything like this before so it was neat to see. It is safe to eat but I feel it is too special to eat so it will stay as a conversation piece in the house.

Have you ever seen anything like this before?


  1. How incredible! That would be a startling reveal, wouldn't it? Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  2. I would not have guessed that was chocolate. However in Europe they are very clever with what they make out of chocolate. I would think the town gets quite crowded in the summer.

  3. So clever! At first glance, I thought you were going to post about a crafts project. I would never have imagined the brush and tube were chocolate. Amazing.

  4. Wow, those are so cool! I would be tempted to taste a tiny piece!

  5. Wow, those really do look quite realistic. Very neat though!

  6. How cool. Once you know it's chocolate you can see it- particularly with the paintbrush. I'd be too tempted to keep the photo and eat the chocolate. Do you know where they came from in Europe?
