Chocolatier Patrick Roger never ceases to amaze with his artistry and super-sized chocolate creations.
His latest masterpiece is a 10-metre tall chocolate Christmas tree, specially created for the 24th edition of France’s annual Téléthon, taking place on 3 and 4 December 2010 to raise funds for l’Association Française contre les Myopathies (AFM).
The tree, which took Mr. Roger and his team one month to build, is made of four tonnes of chocolate!
From 6 p.m. on Friday, 3 December until midnight on Saturday, 4 December anyone who would like to take home a piece of the chocolate Christmas tree is invited to visit the chocolatier’s workshop in the Paris suburb of Sceaux and make a donation in exchange for a tasty morsel.
The size is up to you: 5 euros for 100-grams, or 50 euros per kilo.
All proceeds will go to AFM, which supports research on neuromuscular diseases and rare disorders.
