If you're looking for a Valentine's Day gift that can double as an activity and a tasty treat, look no further than Li-Lac Chocolates' new Chocolate Chess Set. Handmade in Brooklyn from some of the finest chocolate, the set is so realistic, you might mistake it for a real chess board.
Li-Lac Chocolates is located in Industry City, Brooklyn, where trained chocolatiers churn out Willy Wonka-like creations. One such creation is the life-size Chocolate Chess Set. The board itself is made up of four mini checkerboards, which have been filled with white and dark chocolate squares. The pawns and royal figures are then crafted by molds that turn solid chocolate into each piece. Finally, the chess pieces are brushed and polished by hand to give them a life-like shine.
