Chocolate is already decadent in itself but did you know that there are some that go for a high price tag? Chocolate comes in all shapes and sizes, all kinds of flavors and can go for some hefty prizes. Here are a few of the most expensive chocolates around the world.

To’Ak Chocolate Bar ($345 for less than 2 oz)

Made from cacao bean found in the rainforests of Ecuador. This rare bean was thought to be extinct. There are only 100 bars produced each year and it comes in a handcrafted box with tasting tweezers made from Ecuadorian bamboo.

La Madeline au Truffe ($2,600 per pound)

Imagine decadent 70% Valrhona dark chocolate, heavy cream, sugar, truffle oil and vanilla in a rich decadent ganache. In the middle is a rare French Perigord truffle enrobed in Valrhona dark chocolate and then rolled in fine cocoa powder. That’s plentry of chocolate to imagine. At $250 a piece or $2,600 per pound La Madeline au Truffe has been recognized by Forbes Magazine as the most expensive chocolate in the world. With a 7 day shelf life, these babies need to be eaten quickly!

  1. OMG!! I never knew that chocolates could be soooo expensive also. I love chocolates and found these so tempting, but guess would have to satisfy myself with other brands. Have you tried any one of these??

  2. These are indeed some amazingly expensive chocolates from around the world. The La Madeline au Truffe sounds amazing and I have always been a sucker for truffles. Thanks for sharing the information.

  3. Whoa. Two thousand dollars for chocolate?? I love chocolate but not that much lol! It makes you wonder how luxurious it tastes right? Maybe one day I can buy like .00005 pounds 🙂

  4. I love chocolate but I will never pay so much for a piece, no matter how famous it is. I have had some really delicious pieces of chocolate in Belgium and I don’t think any other would beat that. 🙂

  5. OMG! I remember I used to be a crazy chocolate lover until few years back but now I’m not much into chocolates. But I can never imagine myself paying that much for a chocolate, no matter how exclusive it is. 😀 😀

  6. Well I have to say that I have not tried any of these 🙂 but I would love to 🙂 I love chocolate but to me it is insane to pay that amount for a such a short pleasure.

  7. Goodness are these chocolate expensive. I don’t even think I could properly make them justice because I’d feel I’d have to set a beautiful table and make it a very special occasion. They’re all gorgeous and I’m sure tasty but that price tag is just woow.

  8. My favorite guilty pleasure is chocolate! Admittedly, I can’t imagine spending so much, it’s crazy. Maybe one day if I’m ever able to splurge I think I’d love to try the La Madeline Au Truffe. Something about eating truffles always makes me feel fancy. x

  9. Woah!! Those chocolates looks so tempting, I am a huge fun of chocolates. But these one is so expensive. I couldn’t believe it.
