Easter Sunday is just around the corner, Nokia decided to put 3D printing to good use: printing chocolate.

#Chokia is the latest in Nokia's 3D printing research. Chocolatier Mark Jones was tasked with producing the Nokia logo using 3D printing and chocolate 'ink'. After all, we all love Chocoate, and no Easter feast would be complete without chocolate.

The 3Dprinting of chocolate is not an easy task. In the video below, you can see Nokia uses a custom 3D printer called the Choc Creator V1, the world first commercial 3D chocolate printer available to the everyday consumer for just about £2888 / $4800 (exl. VAT).

Choc Creator V1 is a desktop 3D printer using a FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) to dispose the material through a heated nozzle, layer by layer. To create a shape, the printer prints thin layers of chocolate, with 0.5mm to 1.5mm thickness. These quickly harden and more chocolate can be lumped on, until it eventually creates whatever chocolate art you're hoping to make.

Customization and personal expression, along with innovation are central to the company's ethos, says Nokia in the beginning of the video. Hence Nokia innovates for Easter by 3D printing chocolate. So instead of chocolate Easter bunnies, Nokia presents to you edible tech - a chocolate "Nokia" or '#Chokia'.
