Even if you’re not celebrating Easter this weekend, you can still enjoy the holiday perks, like this 40-pound chocolate egg.
Chocolatier Thierry Atlan created the delicious masterpiece for New York City restaurant Sugar and Plumm. It’s made from milk, dark and white chocolates and costs a whopping $5,000. Why the high price tag? The edible egg was labor intensive, taking two people three full weeks to fully construct.
The chocolate egg features carved-out clocks and bunnies with bits of edible gold, making for some truly impressive chocolate art. Sugar and Plumm’s owner and founder Lamia Jacobs explains, “The egg represents the universe, and all of these bunnies are running from the corners of the world trying to be on time for Easter.” Trippy, man!
So if you’re in the market for a few thousand dollars’ worth of chocolate this Easter, hit up Sugar and Plumm. It should last you a few months.
