It wasn’t all that long ago when I pointed out that, in pursuit of the title of the world’s most expensive dessert, a restaurant in Sri Lanka put a $14,500 dessert on their menu. But the price tag on that dish wasn’t quite high enough to keep the title of priciest indulgence with that restaurant. Serendipity 3, a New York restaurant that is known for its decadent frozen drinks, has just introduced a variation on one of it’s most popular menu items that is priced at $25,000. The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate– a spin on their Frrrozen Hot Chocolate – is a chocolate milkshake-type drink infused with 5g of 24K gold, topped with whipped cream and even more edible gold. It is served in a golden goblet, with a diamond-studded gold spoon and an 18K gold and diamond bracelet.
As if that weren’t enough, the whole concoction is topped off with La Madeline au Truffe, picked by Forbes Magazine as the most expensive chocolate in the world. Priced at around $250, the truffles are made with a truffle oil-infused dark chocolate ganache and have a French Perigord truffle at the center of each. The dessert is also accompanied by a small box of additional truffles.
