While many Easter treats are equipped with edible candy button eyes, this extravagant one created by celebrated chocolatier Martin Chiffers is not the one most kids will be presented with before the annual Eater egg hunt.

This decadent sculpted chocolate rabbit features a more realistic design than usual, complete with eyes that sparkle—and rightfully so, since they're 1.70ct round brilliant diamonds from 77 Diamonds. The life-size bunny costs nearly $50,000, although its buyer can feel good that a donation will be made to The Prince's Trust upon purchase.

Beyond price, the other set of numbers that people will be most interested in is the calorie count. Weighing in at around five kilograms, this chocolate Easter bunny contains over 548,000 calories. Fortunately, to spread out the calorie consumption over time, the chocolate sculpture can be kept for up to two years, provided that it is safely stored at the right temperature.
