This Life-Size Benedict Cumberbatch Is Made Entirely Of Chocolate

Benedict Cumberbatch is already a delicious-looking human being. Now, he's also an equally delicious-looking bar of chocolate.

Just in time for Easter, UKTV commissioned a life-size statue of the Sherlock actor. It's made entirely of chocolate — over 500 bars of it, to be exact. At approximately 88 pounds and six feet tall, this choco-version is officially the sexiest candy bar we've ever seen.

UKTV polled its viewers about which actor deserved the sweet honor. And, Cumberbatch won over David Tennant, Idris Elba, Sean Bean, and Damian Lewis. Mashable reports it took eight people to make this culinary delight.

The question now is what will happen to this chocolate god among men? England doesn't often get so hot that it would melt, but surely it should be stored somewhere special and at a bit cooler temperature just in case. Also, no one can eat this, ever. May we suggest Cumberbatch himself take his chocolate doppelganger on a press tour around the world? [Mashable
