What does your sweet tooth have in common with your printer?  More than you might think.  Hershey is developing a 3-D printer which will print in chocolate.

This has to be a chocolate lovers dream.  Hitting the print button on a printer and out comes chocolate.  Sounds like the stuff you'd read in a kid's book but Hershey hopes to make it a reality.

CNN Money reports Hershey and 3D Systems have teamed up to create a printer which not only prints chocolate but other edible items too.

Hershey sees this as another way to get its product out there.

Whether it's creating a whole new form of candy or developing a new way to produce it, we embrace new technologies such as 3-D printing as a way to keep moving our timeless confectionary treats into the future.

You're probably wondering when you'll be able to get your hands on one of these tasty printers.  So far Hershey isn't saying when or how much this new technology will cost but you can bet once it's out, there's going to be a whole lot of printing going on!
