It took a master chocolatier, cocoa from Tanzania and two solitaire diamonds to create what’s being billed as the world’s most extravagant chocolate Easter bunny, worth $49,000 – or, the price of a high-end car.


The bunny statuette measures 38 cm (about a foot tall) and weighs in at 5 kg (11 lbs) – the weight of an average cat – equal to 548,000 calories.

But what makes this particular edible animal over the top is its eyes, a pair of 1.07-carat solitaire diamonds valued at more than $37,320.
