How’s THIS for an Easter surprise? Benedict Cumberbatch fans can literally take a bite out of the Oscar-nominated actor if they’re craving a chocolatey treat. With Benedict’s face, rabbit ears, and a bunny’s body, you’ve NEVER seen — or tasted — the British actor like this before!
Benedict Cumberbatch, 39, has taken on quite a few roles in his career, but his latest incarnation is one we never saw coming! Thanks to chocolatier Jen Lindsey-Clark, Benedict can now be enjoyed as a sugary, cocoa dessert complete with his own set of bunny ears. Talk about a sweet tribute! Here’s how to score a Cumberbunny of your own.
“A delicious Belgian chocolate rabbit with a handsome face and a tasty bottom,” Jen’s description of the Cumberbunny reads. What a brilliantly delicious idea, right? And Jen’s team is totally capitalizing on the Easter season by morphing the actor into a chocolate version of an Alice-in-Wonderland-type character sporting a bowtie and long ears. Yum!
What else do you need to know about this oddly cute, edible creation? Cumberbunnies come in handmade milk, dark, and white chocolate (400g each). The dark chocolate Cumberbunny sells for $70.84 while the white chocolate version is a whopping $99. But in all fairness, the white rabbit does come with an edible 22-carat gold bow tie. Now THAT’S a rich dessert!
It’s leap day and they are leaping out the door!!! Come and get your Cumberbunny before its too late… pic.twitter.com/SSDZjUj74j

But unfortunately, if you want your own edible Benedict bunny and are living in the U.S., you’re out of luck — at least for now. Currently Cumberbunnies are only being shipped to France, Germany, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK.
And if you can believe it, this isn’t even the first time the Doctor Strange actor has been turned into a chocolate masterpiece! Just last year, in 2015, Jen created a life-size statue of the actor made of Belgian chocolate. But this year the dessert-maker really upped her game by not only turning him into a bunny but making him available for purchase! Here’s to hoping we get one of these Cumberbunnies in our Easter baskets this year!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers: are you a fan of Benedict in choco bunny form? Would you purchase one of these bad boys?
