You might not feel too guilty about gobbling up one -- or several -- of these Chocolate Terrariums, for your recommended leafy greens are an obvious ingredient. Plus, the desserts don't really look like your usual sweets. There are plenty of reasons to whip up a batch of these and to keep a few testers for yourself.

The Gook has posted instructions for how to make these unique and yummy snacks that actually combine a recipe for flourless chocolate cake with fennel flowers and edible micro-herbs. You bake your soil-like dessert and use a circular cookie cutter to get just the right bite-sized shape. Poke tiny holes in the middle and insert your lush vegetation. To complete your Chocolate Terrariums, simply wrap them in short sheets of clear acetate so that they appear to be in cylindrical jars.
