Who here hasn’t binged a new food network series to drool over all the delicious-looking foods that float across the screen? There is something so tempting about exotic or expensive foods. Perhaps it is the implication that they are worth so much money.
Did you know that some of the most expensive desserts in the world cost over a thousand dollars? In some cases, they cost significantly more than that. It’s hard to imagine what these foods would taste like. Let’s take a moment to discuss some of these expensive delicacies.
La Madeline au Truffle
La Madeline au Truffle is made by Knipschildt Chocolatier in Norwalk, Connecticut. Each truffle will run you around two hundred and fifty dollars, so be mindful of how many of these you opt to buy! If you’re looking to splurge, you can buy a whole pound of them for nearly three thousand dollars.
What makes La Madeline au Truffle so costly? They include vanilla, truffle oil, sugar, heavy cream, and seventy percent Valrhona dark chocolate. Finally, the truffle is packaged in a golden box.
Golden Opulence Sundae
Packaging delicious delicacies in gold seem to be a trend. However, the Golden Opulence Sundae takes this more literally than most. Created by Serendipity 3, a restaurant based in New York City, this dessert is an ice cream like no other.
This one-of-a-kind ice cream experience will run you around one thousand dollars. But in exchange, you’ll receive a Sundae with Grand Passion Caviar, chocolate truffles, and Tahitian vanilla ice cream. The final touch is a light dusting of a real 23-carat gold leaf.
Frrrozen Haute Chocolate
Are there any hot chocolate fans in the audience? Do you think you love hot chocolate enough to pay twenty-five thousand dollars for one? Frrrozen Haute Chocolate has twenty-eight different types of cocoas, including some of the most expensive in the world. Topping off this expensive dessert is an edible gold leaf. The dessert is served in a goblet lined with gold and diamond bracelet.
If you want to talk about the most expensive dessert in the world, you’ve got to know about Strawberries Arnaud. As the name implies, Strawberries Arnaud originates from a restaurant named Arnaud’s, which can be found in New Orleans.
Strawberries Arnaud wins the prize of being one of, if not the, most expensive desserts in the world. Each dish costs almost ten million dollars. Yes, you read that correctly. Don’t worry – this dish contains more than strawberries. Diners will find 24-carat gold flake toppings, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and (expensive) champagnes and liquours perfectly balanced to give this dessert a tasteful flair.
