That might look like a grub. That might look like dirt. But all of it is handmade Valentine's Day sweets for a very important person.

Twitter user Shun_Lock created the dirt by smashing Oreos (sans cream) and chocolate bars with a hammer.

Which resulted in realistic, yet delicious dirt.

The stag beetle larva was made from glutinous rice flour, which is used to make dumplings.

And after the faux grub was formed, it was steamed.

Finally, the larva and the dirt were added to the bug carrying case (top photo). Everything is edible and delicious—save for the plastic box. Don't eat that!
