Crave: Painting By Chocolate

Making presents always seems like a good idea. Homemade creations are supposed to be less expensive and more thoughtful than “store-bought” gifts, but sometimes (actually, most times) it doesn’t work out that way. Unless you’re a voracious crafter and have tons of glue sticks and supplies on hand, you have to buy all of the supplies first. And craft stores can be daunting. Plus, it’s pretty much a given that the final product will turn out nothing like you intended. I came across these instructions for making a portrait entirely out of chocolate, and while I know I will fail (how’s that for a positive attitude), I might try anyway. I’m thinking about creating a milk chocolate Matt Damon. [wikiHow]
