Massive Chocolate Display takes over the Moon!
Palace Resorts gives Christmas a whole new meaning by creating the first-ever 1,500-pound chocolate Christmas Village at the Sunrise lobby of its signature property, Moon Palace Cancun. As the first and only resort in Mexico to have crafted such a decadent treat, the brand had its best chocolatiers and pastry chefs working for a total of over 4,500 hours! That’s right, over the course of three months our pastry experts have crafted intricate, detailed figurines, chocolate sculptures, mini resort-looking villas but most importantly its centerpiece – the Christmas tree. The village which is comprised of only chocolate has an estimated cost of about $10,000. Guests can also find carefully crafted chimneys with white chocolate covered tops to resemble the snow. Chocolate carved penguins with assorted expressions. A completely lit chocolate Ferris wheel with carnival-style chocolate swings, holding tiny bears and coated in edible gold sparkles. A toy train surrounds the entire chocolate village. Each has a different coating of M&M’s to resemble the twinkling lights on houses in the dark night of Christmas Eve.
