The Choconomicon

'Tis the season for mixing horror and chocolate, with frighteningly delicious results!

Would you believe that H.P. Lovecraft used to write copy for Whitman's Sampler? (McSweeney's) Like the following:

Chocolate Cherry Cordial You must not think me mad when I tell you what I found below the thin shell of chocolate used to disguise this bonbon's true face. Yes! Hidden beneath its rich exterior is a hideously moist cherry cordial! What deranged architect could have engineered this non-Euclidean aberration? I dare not speculate.

But now, the fine chocolatiers at um, here have made this vision a terrifying reality.
