This time the project is The House of Chocolate by Lepralego, making this their first time hitting 10,000 supporters. The project proposes a chocolate factory building with full interior, demonstrating how the sweet treat is made whilst paying tribute to a past LEGO set.
The approximately 2,700-piece build includes 7 minifigures and 4 rooms in a two-storey building, all contained on one LEGO baseplate. Downstairs, a small café seats and treats customers while the ‘chocomel’ shop sells a variety of sugary souvenirs.
Upstairs is the factory where the cocoa beans are grinded, the liquor is mixed and the chocolate is moulded, a process that has been recreated with LEGO bricks, including the necessary machinery and room for minifigures to operate the system.
Lepralego mentions that this project is a tribute to 1620 Chocolate Factory which also contained a ‘chocomel’ shop and features some animations of the LEGO chocolate-making process on the project page.
