Last week, Pope Francis was presented with a life-sized replica of himself made entirely out of chocolate. Chocolate artist Mirco Della Vecchia created the divine treat out of a 1.5 ton block of dark chocolate. Pope Francis met and greeted chocolate Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday.
This life-size chocolate Pope is magnificent, but this is not the first time in history a celebrity has been replicated as a chocolate figurine—oh no. Celebrities like TV host, actor, and heartthrob Mario Lopez and Twilight star Robert Pattinson have been recreated in chocolate form.
Let’s take a look at the most impressive chocolate celeb statues of all time.
