Giant Chocolate Christmas Tree Made in France

Ad Feedback

A French chocolatier has created a 10-meter, 8,000-pound Christmas tree for true chocolate lovers to view.

The tree stands about 32 feet high and was made at the famous Patrick Roger's Chocolate Factory near Paris.

Several volunteers worked to achieve the candy architecture -- including an American, who now works at the French chocolate laboratory.

"It's when I studied here at University that I decided to come and work here," said Katherine Bosch, at Patrick Roger's Chocolate Factory. "I think that's the first time that I discovered desserts and chocolates, the desserts and chocolates of the French and I just found that they were of such high quality."

"It was just so different. I mean, not to discredit the U.S., but I just immediately fell in love with the pastries here," she added. "And that's why I decided to come back and study and do a stage here."

There are many holiday creations to be found at Patrick Roger's, but none quite as big as the massive chocolate tree.

The tree will be used in a telethon Dec. 3 and 4 to raise money for research of neuromuscular diseases.
