Chocolate Benedict Cumberbatch Is Deliciously Terrifying
Attention, world: Chocolate Benedict Cumberbatch is a thing, and it is happening just in time for Easter.
“Chocobatch,” as the 90-pound chocolate statue is affectionately known by its creators, was made in honor of the newly minted drama channel on the U.K.’s on-demand service, U.K. TV Play, the Telegraph reports. Women were asked to name the most delicious man on U.K. drama shows, and the Sherlock actor won without a doubt.
According to the (totally awesome) video of the statue, the confection version of Benedict Cumberbatch is made entirely of Belgian chocolate and took 5,000 bars of melted chocolate (40,000 grams) to create the deliciousness. As you can tell in the video (which you can check out over at the Telegraph), Chocobatch was crafted with some serious skill, precision and care as the chocolate artists paid painstakingly close attention to detail, perfecting everything from the lines on the inside of his palms to each strand of edible chocolate hair. Yum.
While we’re bummed we can’t take a little bit of the choco action home with us (specifically, in our Easter baskets), lucky U.K. fans can go see the Imitation Game star in the flesh — er, chocolate — at Westfield Stratford City on Friday, April 3. (The jealousy is so real.)
So go forth, U.K. ladies, and take a big ol’ bite out of chocolate Benedict Cumberbatch for us! We bet he tastes delicious.
