Chocoholics, unite - your time has come.  This is your chance to celebrate the mightiest of confections, and give chocolate its day in the sun (or partial shade at least, we don't want it to melt).

Share your epic chocolatey-goodness creations in a new Step By Step, Video, or Slideshow Instructable for your chance to win fame and glory as the crowned ruler of all things chocolate (and a custom-etched iPad)!  

So get in the kitchen and show us what you've got.  We can't wait to see what you make.

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to international entries. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PDT, May 22.
