The World Chocolate Wonderland exhibition and trade show will have a special treat this month as a chocolate replica of the Great Wall of China has been made. The crafty and clever Chinese confectioners behind this creation of 10 meter (33 ft) long chocolate-y goodness thought it was a good idea as a ploy to seduce their Chinese brethren to eat more chocolate.
The Great Chocolate wall is made up of a mixture of mostly solid dark chocolate bricks with white chocolate ”cement”
They even made a mini-army of 560 chocolate replicas of the famous Terracotta Warriors standing at attention on a layer of chocolate flakes.
And it wasn’t without hard work either as Chocolatier Wang Qilu attests. ”It was a feat of engineering in itself, with a carefully constructed crumbling section at one end to resemble the real thing.” It also meant he had to make sure chocolate materials did not melt.
That sounds so good. We should all go to China right now!
