Irvine Chocolatiers Build A 9-Ton Chocolate Mayan Temple, Break Guinness World Record
The masterpiece not only accurately captures the intricacies of an authentic Mayan temple down to the exact number of steps, but it broke the Guinness World Record for largest chocolate structure, surpassing the previous record by more than 7,500 pounds. A Mayan theme was chosen for the crucial role the culture played in the origins of chocolate. See more photos of the temple on Qzina's Flickr site.
