Most Expensive Desserts In The World

Some desserts are so expensive that they are not affordable at all. And we’re not talking about the kind of dessert you can find at your local grocery store; we’re talking about the kind of dessert that costs a million dollars and is only served at the most exclusive restaurants in the world.
But what makes a dessert so expensive? That depends on the restaurant and its chef. Some restaurants have a high overhead, while others charge based on their ingredients and time spent creating each dish. Still, other chefs use tricks like caviar or rare meat cuts in their dishes, making them more expensive than ordinary desserts. Here are our picks for the most expensive desserts in the world:

  1. Strawberries Arnaud
    Price: $9.85 million
    Strawberries Arnaud is a dessert that has existed since the 18th century. It was first made by Pierre Arnaud and his wife, Jeanne, who lived on an island within the city of Paris. The dessert consists of vanilla ice cream with strawberries, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce. What makes it expensive is the 10.06-carat diamond ring that comes along with the dessert. The golden spoon is another highlight of this inviting dish served in Arnaud’s restaurant in New Orleans.

  2. Three Twins’ Record-Breaking Ice Cream
    Price: $60,000
    Three Twins Ice Cream has long been a pioneer in inventing outrageously unique desserts and ice cream flavors. In 2018, the brand announced its very first and extremely lavish dessert experience. Customers had a chance to fly out to Tanzania and devour their favorite ice cream at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. Neal Gottlieb, the founder of Three Twins Ice Cream, came up with the concept on one of his travels while making his own ice cream on the snowy trails. Basically, Neal himself collects ice from glaciers. He makes vanilla ice cream or any other flavor ordered by the customer.

  3. Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel Pudding
    Price: $35,000
    Imagine the three favorite things any human craves. Now blend them all to create a magnificent and delicious dessert. Well, the United Kingdom’s well-known chef Marc Guibert came up with the idea of a $35,000 dessert made of pudding, caviar, and gold. Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel is one of England’s Lake District’s most popular tourist destinations. The place serves this impeccable amalgamation of flavors with pride and grace. Overall, the hotel offers some quite affordable and elegant meals, while the rooms charge a decent tariff.

  4. Frrozen Haute Chocolate
    Price: $25,000
    New York City is no stranger to flaunting its diversity of cuisines, flavors, and assorted palates. And Serendipity 3, which Stephen Bruce established, is home to various decadent desserts. The Frrozen Hot Chocolate, spelled with two Rs, is one of the restaurant’s most cherished and popular creations. It features edible gold and is served in an edible gold goblet. What’s more? The 18-karat gold bracelet that highlights one carat of white diamonds is placed below the goblet and is a complimentary gift for the customer. Moreover, the pop art fanatic Andy Warhol played a huge role in branding the restaurant for its fantastic food and the most acceptable range of ice creams.

  5. Krispy Kreme’s Golden Doughnut
    Price: $1,685
    Krispy Kreme is a classic spot for desserts. The brand was established in July 1937 exclusively to serve doughnuts. But the bakery soon started selling less pricey fried pastries as well. The company sells its regular glazed doughnuts for nothing more than $15. But Krispy Kreme went above and beyond to launch an expensive version of their classic doughnuts. The $1,600 golden doughnut features gold-dusted edible chocolate over its original creation. The dessert has a beautiful and inviting design that resembles a chiseled piece of art. Moreover, it includes an underlying flavor of champagne, presents edible diamonds, and a leaf made of pure gold. What’s more? When the dessert was first launched in the United Kingdom, part of its sales profits were given for philanthropic purposes.
