Can anyone tell me the technique that Chapon use to print image on chocolate?

Hi All,

I bought this chocolate watch from Chapon in Paris. It's 7.5 euros and only 9g. It had a photo of Audrey Hepburn printed on it. Can anyone tell which technique they used to print image on chocolate? Transfer sheet or food printer?

I bought an edible printer from ebay and a pack of chocolate transfer sheets,but it doesn't work...I already wasted 4 sheets :( I also tried frosting sheets.. result is not good..

Hi mint not sure what they have used for the watch, dont know what printer you purchased from ebay or what transfer sheets you use, i have had perfect results with chocolate artist form deco, that is the software they use for printing on transfer sheets, i use the cocoa butter sheets from chocolate world i find them better than the ones deco sell.

You will need a canon printer you can purchase all from deco but you might find if you buy the items seperately it may be cheaper.


hello i am new to the printing of cocoa butter but i am interested to learn more about the type of printer  

Dave, you sound like you know a lot about it  

do you need to have a special printer ?

do you have to temper the cocoa butter or will the printer do it? 

how does it keep the cocoa butter at the tempered? 



Hi Laura if you cant find what you are after on forum, it can be a bit daunting to start and money dont grow on trees ( shame ) you can email me on and i will walk you through it step by step.

if you go to the CHOCOLATE ARTIST SOFTWARE/PRINTER  talks you should get all your questions answered. Should be on page 2 or 3 of the discussions.

Hi mint,

I believe that they are using blister transfer technology.

Very common in Europe for printed shapes.

Alas, I don't think that we can make it in-house with inkjet printers and transfer sheets.
