What happens when you live in a world that is trending designer chocolate, DIY projects and local cuisine? German founded Chocri, an online interactive design-your-own chocolate bar operation, that’s what. To release your inner Willy Wonka, navigate to the website and begin by choosing your base, be it white, milk, dark or a sinful combination. Next, sprinkle in a handful of fruits from sour cherry to fig bits and everything in between.

Bring your bar to life by adding a little spice, like some unexpected jalapeno heat or soothing bourbon vanilla. Polish off your masterpiece by working through the remaining ingredients, including a smorgasbord of nuts, grains and confections. And if you’re feeling particularly clever, top it off with a “happy birthday” or “I love you” plaque and ship it off as the best gift you’ll ever give.

Why not try a dark chocolate base with blueberries, candied lilac and cocoa nibs? Or how about a white chocolate bar with mango cubes, coconut shavings and volcano cashews? Whatever your fancy, Chocri can make your fantasy bar a reality.
