It's pretty absurd to think any dessert would be worth more than one hundred bucks, right? But what about $25,000? Or even $60,000? These extravagant, over-the-top desserts exist, and only those with deep pockets (and likely even deeper cavities) are down to pay the price for sugar.
From ice cream that comes with an entire vacation to a dessert consisting of straight gold, sweets can get pretty out of control. Those with a sweet tooth won't need to go very far to find all their heart's desire, though - these insane, extraordinary sweet dishes can only be found right in the US. For those who would rather have a single decadent chocolate truffle rather than pay their car loan that month, these desserts require an entire savings account to taste.
The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate Ice Cream Sundae Broke A World Record
Ice cream is pretty good on its own and most people feel as though they're in heaven when trying gelato (the superior form of ice cream) for the first time. However, in New York, one of the best places for the chilled dessert, Serendipity 3 was busy breaking all the rules when they premiered the Frrrozen Haute Chocolate Sundae. This slushy-like chocolate dessert contains five grams of 24-carat gold and then some, is served in a diamond-bedazzled goblet, and is then topped off with a La Madeline truffle. As if there wasn't enough gold in the dessert, it's then served with a gold spoon.
Chocopologie Offers A Chocolate Truffle Worth $250
For starters, the chocolates in this truffle are sure to blow anyone's mind lucky enough to try it. With Ecuadorian dark chocolate, fresh vanilla, truffle oil, and fresh cream around the outside, the inside of this beautiful dessert is a Perigord truffle. It's rolled in cocoa powder, but not before being dipped once more in yet another layer of chocolate. To say this is a chocolate lover's dream would be an absolute understatement.
Gold-Plated Jelly Beans? They Come At A Cost Of $500 Per Pricey Jar
First of all, does anyone really love jelly beans enough to pay $500 for one jar of them? The answer, apparently, is yes - considering Jelly Belly concocted "Beyond Gourmet Jelly Beans" which are everyone's favorite toothache wrapped in 24-carat gold. That's not all Jelly Belly lovers will find in this (crystal) jar, though. They also come in some pretty exotic flavors and spice blends that aren't normally seen outside of international cuisine, adding a bit of flair to an otherwise extravagant dessert choice.
Las Vegas' Decadence D'Or Cupcake Will Run Customers $750
There are cupcakes, and then there's the type of cupcakes someone could find in Las Vegas, like the D'Or Cupcake. Decadence D'Or is the most well-known cupcake shop in Las Vegas, and they're now known for a cupcake that will run customers just under $1k. It's for good reason, though - this seemingly simple cupcake is crafted with the utmost decadence, including Palmira Single Estate Chocolate from Venezuela, a topping of Tahitian Gold Vanilla Caviar, and a touch of Louis XIII de Remy Martin Cognac. To finish? A sprinkle of edible gold and some brown sugar fleur de lis, just for good measure.
To Top It All Off, Literally: A $60,000 Ice Cream Sundae "Experience"
Calling this outrageous would be one thing if it didn't include an entire vacation trip. Three Twins Ice Cream in California refused to come in second-place to anyone as far as dessert goes, thus, the World's More Most Expensive Ice Cream Sundae. Not only will the lucky customer earn a trip to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, but their ice cream will be hand-churned at the top of the mountain with ice from the summit! The rest of the cost? It covers world-class accommodations, including airfare.
