The largest chocolate egg in history is currently being created in Argentina.

The egg for Easter was begun on March 1st and contains 450 tons of chocolate.

"We are hoping to enter the Guinness Book for the biggest egg in the world made of chocolate," Carlos Pagilardini, director of the Miramar region tourism office, told AFP.

"There is already a bigger one but it is made of metal and wood. This one is totally chocolate."

When completed the egg will be about 10 feet tall.

It will be made of about 30,000 parts and was worked on by about 30 people.
