When I first saw the front cover of 'The Joy of Chocolate',  my first two thoughts were "Who wants chocolate cabbage?" and "How did they do that?".  I've made this 3 or 4 times for my wife's birthday, and was excited when I saw this contest.  This is my version of The Chocolate Cabbage.

Step 1: It's all in the cabbage and the chocolate

Picture of It's all in the cabbage and the chocolate
When you choose the cabbage leaves, you want the outer leaves.  Inner leaves tend to be too small or too cupped or rounded.  Choose ones clean and without holes and tears. 

Good chocolate goes without saying.  I chose a Scharffen Berger with 62%.  Choose hersheys at your own risk.

This is a fantastic ible! It's too bad your main picture is so dark. I would not have known what it really looked like if I hadn't opened the article. Can you lighten the lead image and re-save?

Yeah, it's really too bad about the pictures. I don't have perfect lighting in my house. That can happen it you're off grid. I don't really even know how to lighten and resave yet, but when I get a "round toit", I may give it a try.

This is interesting, I agree with flyingpuppy if I hadn't clicked I don't think I would have gotten the full idea of your 'able. I'm glad I did, this is cool.  I honestly thought when I saw the title and the picture you had just dipped a cabbage in chocolate.  I thought to myself....yuck how could cabbage and chocolate taste good together?  But, now I get the mold thing, lol.  Nice job!
