IRVINE, Calif., May 16 (UPI) -- The Qzina Institute of Chocolate & Pastry in California announced it broke the world record for the largest chocolate sculpture by recreating a Mexican pyramid.

The sculpture of the Kukulkan pyramid in Chichen Itza, created by corporate chef Francois Mellet, measures 6 feet high and 12 feet by 12 feet at its base.

Guinness World Records confirmed the 18,239.5-pound sculpture beat the previous record of a 10,736.5-pound chocolate sculpture.

Qzina officials said they plan to destroy the sculpture Dec. 21 to coincide with the end of the Mayan calendar.
