Trying to restrain yourself from eating these chocolate sculptures won’t be easy.

Chocolate and art are two things that most people probably don’t associate with each other. Chocolate is a favorite candy or a guilty pleasure, not a medium with which to create an aesthetic object. That doesn’t mean it can’t be done, though. It takes hard work to create these chocolatey masterpieces, but they look incredible when they’re done. So good, in fact, that you’ll actually feel guilty eating them. Let’s look at five amazing examples.

One of the greatest things about art is that it can be made using any medium, from simple materials like paper, canvas, and wood to more complicated substances like metals and ice. Chocolate isn’t something that comes to mind when you think of making art, but that hasn’t stopped some people from using it. 

People have used chocolate to create a wide range of things. We’ve seen everything from models of historical monuments to slightly creepy life-size models of actors. If you can imagine it, you can build it — as long as you have the skills. 

Chocolate is beloved all around the world. In America alone, chocolate sales total more than $20 billion a year, and that number is projected to climb even further. According to Bloomberg, 11 of the 25 best-selling candies in America are chocolate-based, with four of the top five being chocolate. 

Clearly, people love chocolate, which makes it understandable that this treat would inspire sculptors. Take a look at these five delicious and amazing sculptures that you’d happily eat, but would be sorry to destroy.
