Talk about the ultimate Valentine's Day stunt! Described in this Yahoo news bulletin as a "shameless commercial promotion," an all-chocolate room constructed for chocolatier, Godiva, is now complete and open for viewing in New York City. The styling mouth-watering room, officially dubbed the "Godiva Decadence Suite," is located in an office building in Manhattan's East Village. Its purpose is to publicize Godiva's annual Valentine's Day competition. As if the room itself was not enough, Godiva also brought in a glamorously-clad Ali Larter, star of the TV show Heroes, to help showcase its creation.

Visitors to this room of sweet decadence are given strict instructions not to lick the walls, furniture or artwork, all of which are crafted from chocolate.

However, they are allowed to rest a moment on the sofa, which is coated with chocolate only on the sides. Other forbidden activities include lighting the candles or fireplace logs, lest anything melt. Naturally, visitors are allowed to look but not touch the exquisite chocolate chandelier and the all-chocolate reproductions of famous works of art that adorn the walls.

The room was brought from dream to reality by the designer, Larry Abel. Visit Godiva's homepage for closeup views from inside the suite. You will see how beautifully constructed this room really is. What I really want to know is: how did they make this room?

Inspired to replicate this idea -- albeit on a smaller scale -- for your sweetheart this Valentine's Day? How fun to coat some unexpectedly ordinary object in a layer of delectable chocolate. Hmm. The site Baking911 offers up guidance on enrobing foodie objects with chocolate. No reason these instructions couldn't be applied to any other object though, right? Want something creative, yet a little more conventional? Check out Slashfood's awesome instructions on homemade Valentine's Day chocolates.
