China’s great wall of chocolate

China has the Great Wall and now the great chocolate wall. Yum!

The chocolate wall, a miniature sculpture of the Great Wall, is being created as a display at the World Chocolate Dream Park, a new theme park in Beijing. The park will open at the end of January.

Here’s how the two walls measure up.

The Great Wall of China, one of the “7 wonders of the world”, took 2,000 years to build and is about 4,000 miles in length.

The great chocolate wall is made from more than 80 tonnes of chocolate that are formed into solid chocolate bricks and 560 chocolate Terracotta Warriors. It’s about 12 metres in length.

To some chocolate lovers, the chocolate wall may well be the “8th wonder of the world”!

Check out these images of the great wall of chocolate.

Chocolateville – where all chocolate lovers would like to live!

Chocolateville! My kind of town! I’m sure all brownie lovers will agree.

Using 5,000 pounds of semi-sweet, milk and white chocolate, Ned Archibald, Executive Pastry Chef at Keystone Resort in Keystone, Colorado has created this incredible chocolate village scene along with his staff. It’s truly amazing!

There are chocolate houses, trees, a running waterfall, gondolas that go up and down chocolate mountains, two chocolate trains, and a giant white chocolate Christmas tree decorated with chocolate and blown sugar ornaments and surrounded by chocolate gift packages.

A work of amazing chocolatey art! Enjoy!

Chocolate fashions at Salon du Chocolat

Fashions for chocolate lovers? Oh yeah!

I don’t think any brownies were used in the creation of these chocolate fashions designed for the Salon du Chocolat (Chocolate Show) and modelled in Paris on Oct. 13. Just lots of chocolate! The outfits are pretty amazing.

A bonus for wearing one of these – you’d always be able to satisfy your chocolate cravings!

Take the brownies poll!
