The employees of BloomsandBaskets.com love chocolate too, and they use it constantly in their many popular gift baskets that they assemble all year long. Many of the company’s Christmas-themed gift baskets feature the tasty treat, from chocolate bars, chocolate-covered pretzels, chocolate candies, and more.

In the spirit of keeping the world record focused on just chocolate, the staff of BloomsandBaskets.com plans to leave nuts out of their colossal chocolate creation, focusing only on what most people love the most about chocolate bars—the chocolate!
To create this masterpiece will be no easy feat, but the staff of BloomsandBaskets.com is not worried—while the final list of ingredients and money needed to do is not quite in yet, they estimate that it will take at least 6,000 pounds of sugar, thousands of pounds of cocoa and cocoa butter, and several gallons of vanilla.
Once completed, the company plans to celebrate its impressive accomplishment by holding a chocolate-themed party and inviting both the members of the local media and the community to come and see the World Record chocolate bar before it is broken up and shared with the many appreciate chocolate lovers in attendance.
While they make the final calculations necessary for the giant chocolate bar, the staff at BloomsandBaskets.com will remain hard at work assembling a variety of gift baskets perfect for the holidays.
