London: A chip shop owner with a chocolate obsession has created the world’s largest deep-fried Ferrero Rocher. John Clarkson was inspired to make the whopping five-kg treat after a normal-sized batch proved a surprise hit with customers at the Mister Eaters chippy in Preston, Lancashire.

The massive chocolate is ten times the size of a normal Ferrero Rocher and contains more than 25,000 calories. “We sourced a secret Ferrero Rocher recipe from America that allowed us to make a large quantity and then form it into a large ball,” his wife Corinne Clarkson said.
“Making the ball was not hard but other steps along the way were more challenging. The fryers had to be filled to maximum capacity to keep the ball buoyant and we had to use oversized equipment at every stage. We have the giant on display and it is creating a lot of interest,” said Clarkson.
