Cadbury Has Created A Giant 7st Easter Egg And It Looks Incredible
Easter is the ultimate period for any chocoholic, with supermarket shelves stacked high with every chocolate treat imaginable.
But now there's one chocolatey treat to rule them all, as the clever folk at Cadbury World in Birmingham have created an absolute beast - and it looks delicious.
Tipping the scales at 7st (45kg), the egg weighs roughly the equivalent of a 13-year-old boy. It's also 3ft tall, and in some areas is even 4cm thick - just IMAGINE taking a bite into that (actually we don't advise that because you could chip a tooth).
It's clearly been no easy feat, as the giant creation contains the equivalent of 1,111 standard Dairy Milk bars.
According to the Evening Standard, it took three chocolatiers to create the XL Easter egg, including Eve Turner and Gail Deeley.
They were tasked with pouring tempered chocolate into two massive moulds, before letting it set - which we're imagining will have taken a whole lot longer than it would have done for a normal egg.

The two halves were then joined together to become the special 45kg egg, which was hand-decorated with a stunning springtime floral design by Dawn Jenks.
Very sadly, though, you won't be able to enjoy a bite out of the egg yourself, as it's for display purposes only. We know, spoilsports, right?
However, there is one way you can get your hands on a giant egg - as another of the enormous creations has been made to be auctioned off for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Might need a bit more cash than the stuff that you've just found down the back of your sofa, mind...
If you're in need of a slightly smaller scale price-wise, but don't want to trade in on the chocolatey Easter spectacle, you're in luck. That's because you can now get Creme Egg and Ferrero Rocher cheesecake stuffed Easter eggs.
Say it again, slowly - in the MasterChef narrator voice. Sounds good, right?
The Cottage Coffee Shop & Lunch Bar in the Rhondda Valley is the genius place behind such wizardry, where they take two solid Easter Egg shells, stuff them with biscuit crumbs, top them with Creme Egg or Ferrero Rocher cheesecakes and then throw in a few other chocolates for good measure.
They're not even that expensive: one half shell will set you back just £3.50 while the whole shebang is just £6 - a bargain, and a seriously tasty one at that.
