HOUSTON, Texas - Good news for all the chocoholics out there. A new kind of 3D printer is making it possible to print edible chocolate. The CocoJet just premiered at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, and it could soon be available for your home or business.

The device is meant for bakers and chocolatiers. Special software will allow people to design original shapes out of chocolate. It is, perhaps, not the fastest way to make chocolate, however. It takes up to 15 minutes to print a single bon-bon.
