Chocolate chess makes it to amazing objects' list

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hello everyone,

These are those things we love to talk about - chocolate and chess plus a chocolate chess!

CNBC has compiled a list of the most amazing objects ever assembled from chocolate, and Houston's Kegg's Candies landed a spot.

Amongst a Godiva mailbox, a BMW, a miniature castle and even a couple of chocolate rooms (one by Karl Lagerfeld), CNBC lists a chess board of chocolate complete with gourmet milk and dark chocolate chess pieces by Kegg's, which has been making chocolate and other treats in Houston since 1946.

The board is 8.5 square inches and is made of alternating dark and milk chocolate squares
. The individually moulded pieces range from pawns that are two inches tall to the 3.5-inch king. The sets are sold at Kegg's for $39.95.

Happy chessy drooling Sunday everyone.
