World's Largest Chocolate Sculpture Unveiled

Even the sweetest of teeth should be satisfied by this dessert.

Weighing the equivalent of two adult elephants, the world's largest chocolate sculpture is currently on display at the Qzina Institute of Chocolate & Pastry in Irvine, California.

The sculpture, which took more than 400 hours to create, is modeled on 
the Kukulcan pyramid in Chichen Itza, Mexico.

The Mayan theme was chosen in honor of the culture that discovered the potential of the humble cocoa bean, now a staple ingredient in millions of snack cupboards.

Weighing an incredible 18,239lb, the solid chocolate pyramid is built proportionally to the temple's true size.

It measures ten feet by ten feet at the base and stands six feet tall.

The pyramid will be on display from June until December 21, the end of the Mayan calendar, when it will be destroyed.

When they say 'destroyed,' they mean broken down and given to visitors with a sugar craving, right? Right??
