The Japanese edition of Fate/Grand Order is currently running its Valentine’s Day event, but some treats are in store even for folks who don’t play the game. A new promo campaign called FGO Chaldea Cooking launched, aiming to recreate FGO Valentine’s Dat treats in real life [Thanks, Famitsu].

The new FGO Chaldea Cooking series is the result of a partnership between Aniplex and Cookpad, a recipe-sharing platform. Each day from February 7-11, 2022, a special site will be updated with a new Cookpad-produced recipe based on one of the Valentine’s Day Craft Essences from the game.
In FGO parlance, a Craft Essence is a piece of equipment that can be assigned to one’s Servants before battle. It will boost their stats or add various effects. Each event adds new Craft Essences, and the Valentine’s Day-themed ones feature art and flavor text describing the special chocolate given and received by the characters.
The first recipe shared by FGO Chaldea Cooking is based on the Valentine’s Day gift from fan-favorite Rider-class Servant Astolfo. Called Rabbit Cute Chocolate, the recipe produces a pair of chocolate cup treats in the shape of sweet bunnies. Check out the video for the recipe below.
The recipe mainly uses white and black chocolate for the rabbits. Food coloring is employed for the hearts. To form the bulk of each rabbit’s structure, a slice of Castella cake is chunked up and shaped into the rabbits’ heads and ears, then coated with chocolate.
FGO Chaldea Cooking will update daily from February 7-11, 2022. The Fate/Grand Order Japan Valentine’s Day event is ongoing, and adds a new Servant based on Fate/Hollow Ataraxia heroine Bazett. Fate/Grand Order itself is available on iOS and Android devices.
