Benedict Cumberbatch Has a Giant Chocolate Clone Now

If you were wondering who Britain’s dishiest dramatic actor was, UKTV has the answer. According to a survey of 2,000 British women, it’s Benedict Cumberbatch (not David Tennant or Damien Lewis). To celebrate the Sherlock actor, as well as the fact that the broadcaster has a new channel called Drama out now, UKTV commissioned eight chocolatiers to craft a life-size dessert version of Cumberbatch. Here’s what you need to know: Its name is Chocobatch, it’s made of the finest Belgian milk chocolate (obviously!), and it comprises nearly 500 bars (40,000 grams) of the sinful stuff. Roll the clip to see what he looks like, as well as how he was made. If you want to try to eat him, go to Stratford, London, on Good Friday. Godspeed.
