Mayan Temple Built from 9 Tons of Chocolate, Qzina Specialty Foods has created the world’s largest chocolate sculpture in the form of temple of kukulkan at chichen itza, an ancient mayan temple found in modern day mexico.
The giant sculpture weighs in at 18,239 pounds and stands 6.5 feet tall, 10 feet wide, and 10 feet long. It is topped off with a Mayan man holding a spear. The chocolate version of the Kukulkan temple at Chichen Itza actually set a new record for the world’s largest chocolate sculpture, topping the previous record holder by over 7,500 pounds. This chocolate behemoth is most definitely a one-off creation and will be on display from June 4 at the Quinza Institute of Chocolate and Pastry in Irvine, California, until December 21, the official end of the Mayan calendar.
