If you thought going to Godiva at Stamford Town Center or your local artisan chocolate shop to buy a three dollar truffle was expensive, then you just might be amazed to learn about the world’s most expensive truffle. These 1.5 oz. gems of chocolate are made by Fritz Knipschildt, Master Chocolatier of Chocopologie in Norwalk and Knipschildt Chocolatier. The La Madeline au Truffle is made with dark chocolate, ganache, and French Perigord truffle.
Now, how much is that truffle that’s pictured above, exactly?
Try $250! According to a post on the Chocopologie wall, the truffles were delivered with a bodyguard and in a slick Rolls Royce. Right now they are being stored in the NYY Steak vault under precious lock and key.
