$240,000 Chocolate Praline by Paul Wittamer and Fabienne Lascar

November 30, 2011

Would you pony up for a $240,000 chocolate praline? Chocolatier Paul Wittamer hopes so; he's teamed up with jeweler Fabienne Lascar for a dessert so decadent that it's officially the most expensive chocolate praline in the world.

What goes into a $240,000 chocolate praline, anyway? Dark ganache, ginger, edible gold leaf, caramel and a 3.63-carat diamond garnish. For another super-expensive sweet, check out this $35,000 edible Faberge egg.
