If you're a chocolate lover with a little extra (OK, a lot extra) cash lying around, why not fly to New York to check out the world's most expensive dessert? The dessert, deemed the "Frrozen Haute Chocolate," earns its expensive price tag by containing the following:
- A blend of 28 cocoas, 14 of which are the world's most expensive varieties
- 5 grams of edible 23-karat gold infused in the chocolate
- A whipped cream topper containing even more gold
- A side of La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier, which retails at $2,600 a pound
And if that weren't enough, it's served in a goblet lined with edible gold, with an 18-karat gold bracelet with 1 carat of white diamonds at the very bottom.
To fulfill your extravagant chocolate sundae craving at a much more reasonable price here in Chicago, check out Margie's Candies. $50 gets you the Royal George sundae, which consists of 25 scoops of ice cream and a variety of toppings, including English toffee, fudge, strawberries, bananas and much more.
