We've all heard of or witnessed the legend that is the Hilton-America's Holiday House (if you haven't, this is your chance), but THIS year marks the beginning of a new era.
In the whimsical style of everyone's favorite children's storybook author, Hilton Americas-Houston Pastry Chef Mahesh Weerasinghe and Pastry Sous Chef Glenna Artripe joined forces with the hotel's culinary and property operation teams to present to you an all-new holiday chocolate holiday display like no other. The new rendition of the holiday chocolate house weighs in at a WHOPPING 2.5 tons and 6.5 million calories of sugary chocolate and gingerbread deliciousness.❄✨
This chocolate-covered wonderland springs to life with gingerbread walls that span the Hilton's lobby rotunda. Crafted from 700 tons of pure mouth-watering gingerbread, each cookie has been applied by hand using 250 pounds of royal icing as mortar to safely secure the detailed masterpiece. The figures and toys are hand-sculpted from 1,200 pounds of pure, rich dark chocolate and without any use of molds. 😍
The characters have then been hand-painted with 800 pounds of tinted white chocolate to create the illusion of the real-life toys and storybook characters from our childhood- it's unreal!
The candy-carved paradise will live in the Hilton until December 29th, providing holiday cheer and making it's lobby smell like the best bakery in town. Don't miss it!
