Number 2390 TECHNIQUE DISCUSSION: Chocolate We decided to make you hungry today, but don’t try to take a bite! This post is all about making LEGO chocolate. Which build is the sweetest? A Stormtrooper eating chocolate says “I’m more of a Dark Side chocolate guy.” Swipe for a sweet treat!

The most classic part usage for a chocolate bar is the ingot, part 99563. Take out a bite with a wedge plate! Three builds are pictured that all use ingots, with one being a chocolate bar character with eyes.

For most of us, life is like a box of LEGO bricks. But chocolate is a lovely second option! A box of chocolates is filled with an assortment of uniquely shaped treats. This requires unique parts use! Decorative parts in these two chocolate box builds include minifigure hands, drumsticks, a baguette, and a whip.

Reddish brown, dark brown, or dark tan bricks are the golden ticket! Use cubed parts like crates for chocolate chunks, or rounded barrels for bon-bons. Two types of crates are used in these builds, parts 61780 and 30150. The bon-bons use rubber bands for icing detail.

These builds incorporate chocolate into ice cream and cake using assorted pieces for icing and decoration. Our favorite is the minifigure hand used for chocolate sprinkles, and the tornado part 50663pb02 for an ice cream cup. The slice of cake pictured on the right cleverly uses anti-studs to show how scrumptious and spongy the cake is.

This chocolate shop MOC by @kellybartlett3 is next level! 1x1 studs and tiles are the main parts used for chocolate, and the tornado spiral used in the last slide is also used here for light fixtures! Luke Skywalker peeks out of the corner of the slide and says “I’m a Light Side chocolate guy, like my father before me.”

This silly build by @allysongailbricks has one of the best parts for chocolate - broken brown bricks! Post #2047 highlights this MOC and others that use these fragile fragments. Allyson’s build is two chocolate easter bunnies. One has no tail, and the other has no ears. The one with no tail says “My butt hurts” and the one with no ears says “What??” Are you on the Light Side or Dark Side of chocolate? Comment below!
