18. In most cases it would make more sense to NOT print in chocolate

You need to know how to vacuform for this, but the way to do 3d chocolate is to print a positive in plastic, vacuform a food-safe acetyl sheet over it and use the resultant mold to cast tempered chocolate. This gets your cycle time down from hours to minutes per piece and lets you make more chocolates (or, because acetyl is good up to around 400 degrees, hard candy or cakes) faster. Plus you can use real chocolate and not that "melty" crap you'd have to use in a 3d printer.
