When your dessert costs $25000, your first reaction would be, ‘Is it made of gold?’ At which point the waiter at the Serendipity-3 restaurant in New York will assure you that it is. The topping of this regal dessert actually contains 5 grams of 24-carat edible gold. The frozen hot chocolate mix contains 14 rare and secret cocoas from Africa and South America. Laced with shavings of the world’s most expensive truffle, the La Madeline au Truffle ($2,500 a pound), this opulent dessert (called ‘TheFrrrozen Haute Chocolote’) is served in a baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet with an 18 carat gold and white diamond bracelet attached to the neck. The goblet is further laced with 23 carat edible gold. One bling thing, this.
