There’s a chocolate manhole cover in Japan and we don’t know why

It’s a weird shape to mold chocolate into.

@38beem, a Japanese Twitter user — in an effort to make a chocolatey gift for Valentine’s Day — created what seems to be a manhole cover set into a sidewalk out of chocolate.

He documented the process on Twitter: 

First, he produced a silicone mold for the manhole cover, then filled it with chocolate. 

The asphalt is made with cookie bits infused with edible bamboo charcoal, and @38beem used less butter than recommended to give the cookies a dry, stone-like appearance.

The chocolate manhole is 1/6th the size of the real thing, according to @38beem. @38beem used cocoa powder to simulate rust.

Nobody really knows why he’s created a manhole cover as a Valentine’s Day gift, though. @38beem’s attempt to channel April O’Neil has appealed to some people, but others couldn’t get past its absurdity. 

“How do you feel if you get it as Valentine’s Day chocolate?” one user said. 

Another user said: “It’s too realistic; I don’t feel like eating it.”
