Chocolate Pencils (チョコレート色鉛筆)

I came across another beautiful chocolate today, the Chocolate Pencils.

Chocolate-pencils is a collaboration between Design Studio Nendo with patissier Tsujiguchi Hironobu (辻口博啓), the mastermind behind popular dessert shops like Mont St. Claire and Le Chocolat de H. He created a new dessert based on his impression of Nendo, and Nendo designed new tableware for the dessert.

The chocolate pencils come in a number of cocoa blends that vary in intensity, and chocophiles can use the special pencil sharpener that comes with the plate to grate chocolate onto their dessert. Pencil filings are usually the unwanted remains of sharpening a pencil, but in this case, they're the star!

Better not eat this in front of very small children so as not to confuse them!


  1. I wish all my pencils were chocolate! Hey, I'm going to NYC tomorrow...hopefully we'll have time to visit Brooklyn.

  2. What a fabulous idea!! Looks way to good to eat, but I'm sure I could manage it :-)

  3. These look fantastic, mind you I couldn't trust myself with a set of such yummy pencils I think I would end up eating them like chocolate bars :)
