Looking for something to spend that Euromillions win on?
A New York dessert bar has just the thing; but you’ll need deep pockets and taste for extravagance to enjoy it.
The famous Serendipity 3 restaurant in the Big Apple has been serving up their world-renowned $12 Frrrozen Hot Chocolate since 1954, but if you think that’s pricey for a chocolately treat, hold onto your seat.
The restaurant has a unique dish for high-rollers.
The Serendipity 3 Golden Opulence Sundae costs a cool $1,000 – more than €855 per person – and must be ordered two days in advance to allow chefs the time it takes to prepare it.
Here it is on the menu:
The sundae contains three scoops of Tahitian vanilla ice cream scattered with 23-karat gold leaf.
Toppings include gold-dusted almonds, caviar and a sugar orchid and the whole thing is presented in a $350 Baccarat crystal goblet.
Naturally, it’s best eaten using an 18-karat gold spoon.
And yes, you get to keep the $300 crystal goblet afterwards, but they are unlikely to let you nick the solid gold spoon too.
In 2007, Serendipity 3 broke the Guinness World Record for most expensive dessert ever with an eye-popping take on their classic cult hot chocolate.
The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate ice cream sundae was made using a blend of 28 cocoas and topped with 5g of edible 23-karat gold.
Served in a luxury goblet, the base of which was lined with an 18-karat gold bracelet with one carat of white diamonds from jeweller Euphoria New York, the price was $25,000.
