Food: Chocolate
White Chocolate Jesus with Liquid Cherry Center   (+16, -6)  [vote for, against]
A new Easter-specific candy item, like Peeps

If you made a white chocolate statue of Jesus with a liquid cherry center, then you could use a toothpick to add the stigmata yourself, or perhaps a tattoo. Encourage your artistic side!

Of course, there's the issue of how to eat it, like with animal cookies. I start with the extremities, but my kid brother always started with the head.

Jesus and Mary Chocolate Mould - only $2.25 http://www.kitchenk...oduct.asp?pn=MA0377
Truly a bargain - I think this is the mould used for the chocolate Jesus in [po]'s JOTW link (above). [hippo, Oct 04 2004]

A vast range of chocolate crucifixes, Communion boy lollipops (hmm?), Virgin Mary on a stick lollipops, angel candy, and of course, chocolate Jesuses. [hippo, Oct 04 2004]

Preston's Custom Candy http://www.prestonscandy.com/custom.html
We used these guys before to make chocolate shapes, and they make creme-filled candies (including cherry cordials) there too. I bet you could get them to make this... [monkeywidget, Oct 04 2004]

Believe ti or not, but this is actually Baked, and there was some uproar about it.

can you find a linky? scuttled.

If I were creative enough, I would post "White Chocolate Jesus and Vinegar Monkey" in the culture: superhero section. I think that with their combination of chocolate, New Testament philosophy and piss-flavoured simian hi-jinks, they would fight crime most efficaciously.
-- calum, Mar 31 2002


but it would taste ******* horrible.
-- po, Mar 31 2002


Really? Only seven stars? I would have at least given it eight - ********.

Would this have a communion wafer in the middle of it perchance?
-- RayfordSteele, Apr 04 2002


(Another fine example of the tolerance which we have come to expect from [Mephista].)

The idea does not require mocking.

White chocolate?

<Obligatory "how many times does a catholic have to take communion before they've eaten a whole Jesus?" question>

<Additional obligatory "wasn't Jesus black or at least fairly tanned?" question, to placate Mephista's choccy purism>
-- pottedstu, Apr 05 2002


with regards to leaving choccy on the dash, i can vouch for it's awkwardness when in a molten state. who would have thought that such a beautiful foodstuff could wreak that much havoc onto the car interior. they should make car friendly chocolate.
-- fast_eddie, Apr 07 2002


"...they should make car friendly chocolate."

Yes, perhaps out of stone.

I like the stone chocolate idea, [bris] - not quite as tasty as the real thing, but, boy does it last and last...

Personally, I'd like to see the whole set of Mixed Disciples - each one a holy different flavour. Of course, knowing my luck I'd be the one stuck with the nasty halibut-flavoured chocolate Judas at the bottom of the box. "Can I swop it for your Jesus?"

"No."

"Go on. I'll give you these thirty chocolate coins as well..."

White chocolate is just bad. I'm sorry, but I hate the stuff.
-- Bugsy, Apr 23 2003


I 'spose I could go for a milk chocolate or dark chocolate one. Perhaps three different varieties so everyone can enjoy one.
-- sartep, Apr 23 2003


thanx for the link jutta. as usual i wasn't the first (to think of it )

"White chocolate is just bad. I'm sorry, but I hate the stuff." -Bugsy, Apr 23 2003

Agreed. They should make him out of dark chocolate anyhow, to more accurately reflect his middle-eastern jewish background. They can just paint a layer of white chocolate on for the WASPs who refuse to imagine jesus not having light brown hair and milky white skin.

lovely idea +!

We seem to be in a holiday-related mood this week. (WTAGIPBAN)
-- krelnik, Dec 09 2003


Getting prepared to wish jesus happy birthday, I thought only appropriate to bump this idea. Though not Easter, it is his birthday, and we should all toast him with a white chocolate sweet, whilst driving in our SUVs, me thinks.

Hey no Sorta Claus for years now, even though some of us have been good...
