London, Jan 3 (IANS) A British engineer has invented the world’s first chocolate that does not melt. The recipe includes a special ingredient that allows the chocolate to be moulded into any shape but remains flexible when set.

Stephen Lennie, 43, created the chocolate — dubbed “Magic Choc” — in his kitchen as a surprise for his children, The Sun reported.

Lennie from Belfast made the chocolate with his 42-year-old wife Karen to keep his daughters Rebecca, Natalie and Aimee amused on rainy days.

“I created it on a paper plate at the kitchen table but the kids loved it. They wanted to play with it every day so we knew it was going to be a big success,” he said.

The product has sold for over a million pounds during Christmas. And orders have been flooding in from Russia, Greece and South Africa.
