I had lots of help from my wife on this photo. It's her hand in the photo, and she helped me come up with the idea. I was originally going to take a picture with needles sticking out of chocolates, and she came up with the poison idea. She also helped me brainstorm the title.

I built a light tent for this challenge. I will post a picture of the setup after the challenge. Used two flashes fired via PC cords on either side of the tent. The green liquid is Creme de Menthe alcohol.

Post-processing included 0.5 degree CCW rotate, slight crop, auto levels, resize, unsharp mask, then canvas resize twice to create the border.

I'm thinking that creme de menthe injected into chocolate is a very, very good idea.

This would be a lot better without the yellow kitchen gloves but it's still pretty good.
