Coming Soon: Print-Your-Own Chocolate Treats

Published: March 20, 2014

It could be a chocolate lover's dream come true. The Hershey Company is working with 3D Systems on a printer that would allow users to design and print their own chocolates.

At the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, 3D Systems, which provides 3D printing solutions, introduced a series of printers, accompanied by "recipes" and aimed at commercial bakers and pastry chefs.

It's not alone. Another 3D printer, Foodini, from Natural Machines, can print out other types of food items such as ravioli or quiche.

The partnership between Hershey and 3D Systems was announced at the beginning of this year. There's no word on when Hershey's printer will hit the market, but it's expected sweet printers will be available for both commercial and personal use.
