Chocolate is made to be eaten. Done. End of story. Yet there are those who insist on making something more substantial with the treat than a bar or a truffle.

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 molded 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.

But frankly, in between a truly unique dress that redefines "German chocolate" and a life-size chocolate model of Lagerfeld muse Baptiste Giabiconi, the Kegg's piece looks a little shabby, with seamed pieces and less-than-perfect chocolate squares.

Is Kegg's your go-to spot for chocolate? (I prefer the pecan crisp.) What chocolate creation strikes your fancy?
