Back in 2007, Serendipity 3 made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for serving the priciest dessert in the world. As reported by E! News, the restaurant’s special dessert, the Frrrozen “Haute” Chocolate, costs a whopping $25,000 and is the fancier version of the establishment’s regular frozen hot chocolate offering.
Why the hefty price tag, you ask? Well, the dish has all the usual suspects like milk, whipped cream, and cocoa, coupled with 23-carat edible gold. Five grams in all. Gulp. It’s also served with a special kind of truffle from France called La Madeline au Truffle. Diners get the royal experience, replete with a gold spoon “decorated with white and chocolate-colored diamonds,” a goblet lined with even more edible gold, and an 18-karat gold bracelet adorned with one carat of white diamonds.
According to Guinness World Records, the dessert includes a unique blend of some of the priciest cocoas in the world. Additionally, the sundae was prepared with the help of luxury jewelry brand, Euphoria New York. Oh, and did we mention that this record previously belonged to another dessert from Serendipity 3? However, by comparison, it now seems rather affordable, as The Serendipity Golden Opulence Sundae was priced at a mere $1,000. Talk about putting your money where your mouth is!
