    Benedict Cumberbatch x chocolate x bunny: this is the stuff that dreams are made of… and sometimes dreams come true.

    Remember back in 2015 when a creative chocoholic rendered a life-size version of Benedict Cumberbatch out of her favourite foodstuff? Remember Chocobatch? Either way, let us acquaint you with phase two of Cumberbatch’s confectionary adventures.

    Meet Cumberbunny – a bunny-Cumberbatch hybrid bound to make your Easter Day that bit more delightful, and delicious, or frightening (depending on your opinion of Cumberbatch and how haunted you are by human-animal mash-ups).

    Jen Lindsey-Clark, the woman responsible for transforming 500 bars of Belgian chocolate into the aforementioned Cumberclone this time last year has now lovingly sculpted another chocolate-y tribute to the Sherlock star.

    It was only ever possible for the public to visit big ol’ Chocobatch (boo) but this year we can all get a taste of Benedict. Cumberbunny is a gift we can all enjoy at home. Interpret enjoy however you wish…

    The Brighton-based chocolate artist is selling Cumberbunnies for the rather steep price of £50 a pop – but you know, they are gilded with edible ‘luster dust’, which sounds posh. FYI, we’re also hoping that despite its suggestive name, this dust doesn’t pack any aphrodisiac properties, as we really need no more encouragement…

    Cumberbunny weighs in at 400g and arguably looks even eerier than his predecessor. It’s a classic Easter bunny sporting a 39-year-old man’s face and a jaunty bow tie.

    Important question? Which part of the Cumberbunny will you munch off first?

    We’re going to start with the face. Most definitely.
