NAGASAKI, Japan (NBC/NTV) — With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, some ambitious chefs in Japan have unveiled a giant Valentine’s Day chocolate.

Seven pastry makers spent two days working on the chocolate Valentine at a Dutch-style theme park near Nagasaki.

They melted down 3,000 bars of chocolate to make the card.

It’s more than 7 feet long and weighs about 330 pounds.

One chef said it was the first time they’d tried something like this. He said it was hard to stop the chocolate from spilling outside the mold.

People will get to taste the chocolate on Valentine’s Day, when it’s to be cut up and sold to visitors.
