The favorite part of everyone’s meal is the dessert. Nobody cares for the entrée or the main dish, we all want that juicy, sugar-and-fat filled chocolate mousse. Don’t deny it.
While most desserts come relatively cheap, sometimes you just want to let that financial stability you’ve built up shine. And instead of buying an expensive car, why not have a wickedly expensive dessert instead? Let’s take a look at some good ones. We’ll stick to the “somewhat affordable but still expensive” ones.
La Madeline au Truffle
It’s French, so you know it’s gonna be delicious and expensive. It’s made in Norwalk by Knipschildt, and it’ll cost you $250 just for a piece.
Beyond Gourmet Jelly Beans
Admit it, we all crave 24-carat gold coated jelly beans every once in a while. This David Klein creation, packed in a crystal jar, costs you a modest $500.
Golden Phoenix Cupcake
This is a special cupcake they sell at a Bloomsbury’s in the Dubai Mall. Pretty much the entire thing is dipped in gold, so you shouldn’t be surprised that it has a hefty $1,000 price tag. They even give you a gold spoon to eat it with.
Golden Opulence Sundae
Always with the gold! This one was first made in Serendipity 3 in New York City. Because the ingredients are so expensive and rare, the restaurant demands you make a two day notice if you plan to have this $1,000 dessert. You get to keep the crystal goblet they serve the dessert in, though!
Krispy Kreme’s Luxe Doughnut
This special doughnut was created in 2014 for charity. As you can guess by now, it was covered in gold, but this one also had edible diamonds. It also featured a chocolate lotus and a $1,685 price tag. That’s a lot of money for a doughnut.
Chocolate Frrrozen Haute Ice Cream Sundae
Just like that other sundae, this one was also created at Serendipity 3. Not sure what the first two Serendipities are doing, but they need to step up their game. This $25,000 is cheating just a little bit though – they give you a gold bracelet with inlaid diamonds if you buy it. And a golden spoon to eat it with, of course. Can’t eat expensive stuff with a cheap spoon.
The Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel Chocolate Pudding
At $34,000, this is pretty much the most expensive dessert you can get without cheating (giving someone a diamond ring with 5 strawberries isn’t a dessert, it’s a diamond ring). This pudding needs to be reserved three weeks in advance and the ingredients include gold leaf (of course), chocolates, caviar and a diamond. The diamond isn’t edible though. But you can eat everything else, so bon appetit!
