HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A Houston hotel is taking their annual holiday chocolate display to new heights with full-color sculptures weighing in at more than 1.5 tons.

The holiday display in the Hilton Americas-Houston lobby is complete with Santa, his sleigh, elves, and reindeer. The display also features sculptures of Olaf, the Grinch, and a gingerbread village.

Hilton Americas-Houston's display is entirely hand-sculpted from more than 2,500 pounds of chocolate and chocolate dough - the equivalent of 2,160,000 chocolate chips and more than 6 six million calories.
