If you have a parent who’s handy with tools but has a better equipped workshop than Bob Vila, you might want to consider something a little different for Mother’s or Father’s Day this year. This adjustable spanner, rubber mallet and pipe wrench might look like the real thing, but they’re actually all made from chocolate and perfectly finished to look the part.
Carpenters, mechanics and plumbers might be hesitant to bite into one of these at first — and justifiably so. But once they break off a piece they will be delighted to find each tool is made of Belgian chocolate instead of wood, steel, or rubber. At around $US22 each they’re a little more expensive than a chocolate bunny, so it’s probably best to think of them as individual works of art to help you justify their price tags. [Firebox]
