The luxury chocolate rabbit has been hand carved by award winning Chocolatier & International Pastry Consultant and former Chef Décor of Harrods, Martin Chiffers and the eyes have an unprecedented sparkle thanks to two solitaire diamonds nestled into the chocolate. The diamonds are from luxury jeweller 77 Diamonds who possess the largest selection of diamonds in the world.

The sumptuous sculpture weighs in at approximately 5 kilograms. The creative chocolate carving took two days to make and is extremely labour-intensive, Martin has worked diligently to ensure that the bunny is truly a one-of-a-kind Easter delight. Detailing includes three solid chocolate eggs at the foot of the bunny that are decorated with gold leaf.
