Description

The Noble Chafer Beetle is one of my favourite chocolate animals that I make here at The Edible Museum.

It is a striking, metallic green and lives hidden away in traditional orchards.

This one is made from Belgian couverture chocolate and sits in a solid chocolate frame – 255g of tasty joy in total.

It is all chocolate, the beetle and frame too, so plenty to share with your entomology friends. I hand paint all the details from its iridescent body to its tiny legs and antennae and I think this is why I like it so much. I spend a lot of time with it before it is ready to box up and send to someone and by then I almost don’t want to say goodbye!

More about this vulnerable species:

As its habitat reduces the Noble Chafer beetle is becoming increasingly rare and is classified as Vulnerable, which means it has a very high risk of extinction in the wild.

This beautiful beetle prefers traditional orchards that contain mature fruit trees of 50 to 80 years old. These sites are often cleared as the trees are reach the end of their productive life.

Thanks go to PTES for the information here.

The Edible Museum

Halstead, Essex

Hi, I am Sarah Hardy, your friendly, eccentric, chocolate artist. Come into the museum and find animals, anatomy and ancient artefacts all magically transformed into delicious, high quality, chocolate art. Everything is hand made by artists ready for you to gift to someone special. It is important to me that each piece is unique to us, so I sculpt and make the moulds too. Only then can we get to the delicious business of hand pouring and painting your extraordinary gifts.
