World News It's All Relative Did You Know? Opinion On The Streets
A French chocolatier has constructed the world’s largest chocolate Christmas tree, and it looks deliciously wonderful.

I don’t know about where you live, but my condo board has strict regulations on having a real Christmas tree in the apartment. They figure it’s a fire hazard. But I wonder what they would think about a tree made purely from chocolate?

Standing 10 meters high, using the equivalent of 800,000 regular chocolate bars worth of chocolate, and weighing in at a whopping 4 tons, Patrick Rogers has created arguably the most appetizing Christmas tree the world has ever seen in his chocolate laboratory in Paris.

“To achieve this kind of architecture -- because this really is a piece of architecture -- we used a sort of cavity inside to make the chocolate solid enough, because there is very strong vertical pressure,” he was quoted by the U.K’s Telegraph as saying.

The tree will be featured in France’s Telethon, a charity event raising money for neuromuscular patients. The best part, every donator will receive a piece of the tree.
