Among all the most peculiar artworks we wrote about, several are made of food. Remember the article on edible sculptures? If that doesn’t ring a bell, then what about Dan Cretu’s colorful art pieces, or Hasan Kale’s food-miniatures?

Our features on food art also include the creative lunch boxes, the artist-mother who entertains her kids with artistic dishes, and Ida Frosk’s toasts.

To continue on this front, today’s article concentrates on chocolate sculptures. As we noticed that there are so many interesting and fascinating chocolate works of art, we thought it would have been a shame to only dedicate this post to one creative, so we put several artists together.

Whether it’s white chocolate, spicy chocolate or dark chocolate, the following artworks are definitely unique in both the material they are made of, and the shapes they follow. Artists that worked to make the scultpures are undoubtedly talented, as it must be hard to keep the material—chocolate—hard and malleable at the same time.

HISTORY OF CHOCOLATE

The earliest evidence of cocoa (chocolate) can be dated back to the 1900 BC. Cocoa is not a modern food, as it was used as beverage during the Mayans and Aztecs empires.

However, Europeans had no idea what cocoa was until the 16th century, when Christopher Columbus brought some back. Modern chocolate (chocolate bars, chocolate treats, hot chocolate…etc.) is a result of years of experimentation on cocoa. Chocolate was, indeed, introduced to the world in the early 19th century.
