Benedict Cumberbatch is the inspiration behind Chocolatician's new Cumberbunny treat.

Jen Lindsey-Clark, who founded the Brighton-based shop, created edible chocolate bunnies bearing the 39-year-old British actor's likeness just in time for Easter.

The Cumberbunnies come in three different flavors -- milk, white and dark chocolate -- and feature Cumberbatch's face with bunny ears and bottom. Each treat weighs just over 14 ounces and retails for 70 to 99 dollars.

Lindsey-Clark explained on the Chocolatician website she wanted to take "her talents and passion for experimenting with chocolate and push the limits of how chocolate can be used as a medium to make art and bespoke gifts."

"Everyone loves a bit of the Batch!" she said, according to Metro. "He's a great actor and English gent and he's also making the most of his celebrity status by being able to put his political views across and making the most of his moment in a very cool way."

Lindsey-Clark previously helped render a life-size chocolate statue of Cumberbatch for UKTV. The project, dubbed "Chocobatch," required 500 bars of melted Belgian chocolate, took 250 hours to complete and weighed 88 pounds.

Cumberbatch is known for playing Sherlock Holmes on "Sherlock" and voiced Smaug and the Necromancer in "The Hobbit" films. He will star in Marvel movie "Doctor Strange" and voice Shere Khan in "Jungle Book: Origins."
