In a bid to break the Guinness world record for Most Expensive Chocolate Egg sold at auction, famous Master pastry chef Jacques Torres, will offer his latest creation on April 18 at the Rockfeller Centre.

The giant chocolate egg, weighing around 120 pounds and measuring 30 inches tall, will be auctioned off for charity in an attempt to break the world record, which currently stands at 11,000 dollars.

The giant milk chocolate egg depicts the iconic landmarks and buildings of New York City and was created by artist Carter Jones. The project is also part of the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt, a charitable event of Easter eggs being displayed around the city, all made by different artists. 

Approximately 200 eggs will be on display until April 17. They will then be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
