A chocolate world record?

I've blogged about the biggest Easter egg before, but the sheer size of this chocolate construction makes my mind boggle and my mouth water!

It’s time for a sweet treat with this 35ft high Big Ben clock tower made entirely from chocolate.

The scale model of St Stephen’s Tower was sculpted from 17,600lbs of chocolate by artist Angelo Feduzzi for a Christmas food festival in Macerata Feltria, central Italy.

The chocolate tower took two weeks to put together. Feduzzi said: ‘It has turned out to be the highlight of the festival. people have come for miles just to see my Big Ben.

‘I am very happy and proud to have created something so successful.’

Festival organisers have said that with daytime temperatures at the moment in the town are no more than three degrees Celsius, so the tower is in no danger of melting.

The chocolate clock will stay standing for the rest of the week before it is finally sliced up and handed out to the public.

17,600 pounds of chocolate? Dang!!!

(Not to mention drool!)
