Benedict Cumberbatch’s Chocolate Statue: ‘Chocobatch”
Soon-to-be dad Benedict made fans all over the world fall in love with him with his gut-wrenching performance in The Imitation Game. Just when you thought he couldn’t get anymore delicious, someone had the genius idea to create a candy confection version of the actor. And voila, Chocobatch was born! And fans. Can’t. Handle. It.
Check out some standout tweets about Chocobatch below!
After a UK fan poll was taken, Benedict, who married Sophie Hunter on Valentine’s Day, beat out other British actors for the title of “dishiest TV drama actor.” To celebrate his win, UKTV resurrected a giant chocolate version of the star. Wow — what an honor!
The drool-worthy creation was constructed from 500 bars of Belgian chocolate, and stands over 6 feet tall, weighing more than 88 pounds. UKTV built the statue to celebrate the launch of the Drama channel on its on-demand streaming service.
Benedict In Your Easter Basket?
Made just in time for Easter, Mr. Chocobatch seems like a way better alternative to a boring chocolate bunny. Wouldn’t you rather have him in your Easter basket?
Whether or not the Easter Bunny delivers him to you or not this weekend, if you’re lucky enough to be in the UK, you can see Chocobatch at the Westfield Stratford City on Apr. 3 — and anyone who wants to follow his tour through the UK can keep up with the hashtag #chocobatch.
