Experience Dessert in a New Way with Chocolate Pencils

View all 4 Photos

These chocolate pencils were designed by Nendo, the Japanese studio that previously designed chocolate nails and chocolate paint tubes. Created for Tsujiguchi Hironobu in Tokyo, the pencils are made to be “sharpened” for the delicate, delicious chocolate shavings. Customers at the patisserie shave the chocolate themselves with the accompanying pencil sharpener, decorating their dessert as part of a creative if somewhat laborious experience. The pencils themselves are available in a variety of cocoa blends, so there’s a flavor to inspire each and every chocolate lover to play with their food.
