got to be a chocolate jesus

got to be a chocolate jesus

It was Easter time last year when the idea hit. I had been listening to Bill Hicks and he was ranting about Easter and how the modern symbols of this religious holiday (bunnies, chocolate) don't really speak the meaning of the holiday.

So, being the sacrilgeous atheist that I am, I began devising a plan to bring Easter and chocolaty goodness together in a way that made more sense.

Of course. A Chocolate Jesus.

So I started melting chocolate and figuring out a way to mold it into shape. I stuck a blob of melted chocolate in the freezer and waited until it was not quite frozen and a bit pliable. Then I began working on my masterpiece.

I'm not a very good artist, and I'm sure he looked more like Charles Manson than Jesus Christ when I was done, but lo and behold, two hours later I had myself a Chocolate Jesus.

I had toyed with the idea of making a crown of thorns out of spun sugar, but decided against it. Not because it was improper, but because I haven't the slighest clue how to make spun sugar.

Now, how does one go about eating a chocolate Jesus? With the chocolate bunnies, you generally eat the ears first. So that's what I did. I ate Jesus's ears. The next logical step would be the tail. But of course, Jesus doesn't have a tail. So I started chomping on his lower half. And the lapsed Catholic in me heard the words in my head:

"Body of Christ, Amen."

It was good chocolate. I kept eating.

I ate his head and his arms and the the remnants of his robe.

And then I made another. I decided I would give them out for the holidays. No, no. I would sell them for the holidays. What a grand idea.

But somehow it never happened. I think I ate every chocolate Jesus I made. 20 pounds and one handbasket to hell later, I gave up on the idea.

So now Easter is approaching again. I'm thinking the time is right for a Chocolate Jesus. I just need the right marketing tools. I need a slogan.

Sweet Jesus!

If it turns out there is a hell, I am sure I will be there. But I'll be in good company at least.

So you know that was a book, as well as a recent Tom Waits tune, right?

I linked the Tom Waits song, down at the bottom. And I knew about that book, can't believe I forgot it. Thanks.

"You got your Jesus in my Peanut Butter?"

"New king-size Jesus, for the hungry ones"
"Jesus candy bar, now with creamy nougat"
"What would you do for a Jesus bar?"
"How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a Jesus pop?"

Pictures, I wanna see PICTURES...

Some more slogans:
"Chocolate Jesus: Tastes Divine!"
"Chocolate Jesus: Heaven on your lips, Hell on your hips!"
"Chocolate Jesus: more fun than a lawn statue!"

And, the jingle:
"What do you give your old Aunt Beezus?
Make her real happy with Chocolate Jesus!
Jesus comes in milk, or dark, or white
Chew on Jesus all through the night!
There's a taste o'Jesus made just for you --
Now you know 'What Would Jesus Do!'
You'll go rob a bank, or plan a heist
Just to munch on the Body of Christ!"

Announcer voice-over: "And don't forget -- Holy Ghost Pops now available in strawberry or lime!"

Oh my god. I can't stop laughing.

I guess we can use that carpool lane on the way to hell.

Yes, there MUST be pictures!

Jesus Christ Super Bar

He melts in your mouth, not in your hands.
ChocoJesus, not just for sinners.

One year, Amy and I came across a chocolate cross, as part of the Easter candy display at some gift shoppe in the Chicago suburbs. We immediately decided it was a chocolate crucifix, although there was no chocolate Jesus stuck on it. I could easily see a little candy Jesus stuck on it, made of that same hard candy that they use to make the carrots that they stick on chocolate Easter bunnies. I'll start working on that.

And the scary part is, I really believe that you are working on it right now.

Chocolate Jesus, now bringing the Body of Christ to everyone!

Chocolate Jesus - in your choice of white or dark. Keeping the KKK and the NAACP happy.

Are we in hell yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? I need to pee.

I think it's a plot by us Catholics to convert everyone. If we can't get you to take communion then we'll just get you to eat the Jesus Christ Super Bar.

You know, sad thing is, as a soapmaker, I bet I could find you a Jesus mold... but I am afraid of the evil I might unleash on the world!

we are all going to hell.
we'll be in good company.
this made me laugh out loud.
and i have had a bad time of it this week.
thank you
and i DO believe that Jesus has a sense of humor.

Savor the savior flavor
or
Savour the saviour flavour

(American English sure is economical with the letter U.)

My sides are splitting from the hilarity.

Hehe. From my first blog post (nearly a year ago! How time flies!):

"Yes, I know some of you may be saying "but Easter is about Jesus." But come on, it's become secular in most ways just like Christmas. What part of the bible are chocolate bunnies in? If we were observing the religious aspect, shouldn't we have chocolate Jesus's, instead?
"mummy, I just ate Jesus' head."

"Now, don't get too filled up on Jesus. You need to save room for this big old goy ham I baked up."
Or maybe we could have chocolate Stations of the Cross, each with a different surprise filling.
"Mmmm, the last one is raspberry mocha."
"You ate them out of order? Well you can just think about how good that was while you're BURNING IN HELL!"
One of my favourite quotes about organised religion is from Robyn Hitchcock. He says that while he's a spiritual person, he also has an infinite contempt for organised religions, which hijack spirituality for political purposes. He goes on to say they're perilously close to pornography in this way. I know, happy Easter. Heh."
I used to hang out with Bill H. If he's not in heaven I'd rather go to hell.

i did that too! right after mule variations came out, i was suddenly inspired one night to make a chocolate jesus - i got one of those jesus nightlites, and filled it with melted chocolate chips, and let it cool. worked pretty well, actually.

Mule? There are chocolate mules?

I was thinking, if they covered the communion wafers in chocolate maybe more people would be inclined to come to church.

There's a whole set here waiting to be made. Chocolate Jesus in the Manger. (Hey, let's do the whole creche thing in chocolate!) Chocolate Jesus feeding the 5,000 with little chocolate loaves and fishes. Chocolate Jesus driving the moneychangers from the temple. Chocolate Jesus on the Cross. And, of course, Chocolate Jesus ascending into heaven!

For non-Christians, you could have your choice of a Chocolate Moses, a Chocolate Buddha, a Chocolate Mohammed, a Chocolate Baba...

Or the free-thinker series, featuring Chocolate Einstein and Chocolate Darwin.

Hey, let's dip the whole world in chocolate!

Chocolate Satan?

This is going to have to come to fruition at my house for easter this year. I am going to go out and see if I can find a Jesus mold today... Mebbe Truffle-filled Jesus' all around for Easter. I'll include instructions on how you should eat the ears first. :)

Chocolate Satan! How could I have forgotten him? He's an industry unto himself: Chocolate Beelzebub, Chocolate Lucifer, Chocolate Prince of Darkness (mmm, love that dark chocolate), Chocolate Asmodeus, Chocolate Old Scratch, and, of course, the Chocolate Antichrist!

"and, of course, the Chocolate Antichrist!"

A chocolate Rumsfeld!! Delicious!

You heathens are all the same ... grin Next you'll be making chocolate mangers in time for Christmas!

I found this site was pretty cool and funny!

Did you know that Marilyn Manson's Cousin has a Band called "CANDY COATED JESUS" and they give out little Chocolate covered Candy Coated Jesus's at their shows! it's their gimmick....
