BOCA RATON, Fla. — If you like a little gold with your sundae -- yes, it's edible, a Florida resort has it on the menu. And yes, it'll cost you.
The Golden Opulence Sundae at The Boca Raton Resort and Club features 50 scoops of gourmet ice cream, sorbets, a handmade chocolate spire and imported French chocolate truffles.
A chef places an edible, 24 karat gold leaf atop the dessert. It'll set you back $1,000 and requires a 48-hour advance reservation.
"It’s an ice cream sundae. That can be a pretty basic thing. But we don’t simply serve vanilla with chocolate," executive chef Andrew Roenbeck told Forbes, speaking of an effort to create a sense of place at the luxury resort.
"We have all these components wrapped into one, and the quality and taste are great."
The dessert is served at the resort's Serendipity 3 restaurant, and it's much larger than what's available at New York City's version of Serendipity. Forbes said $1,000 there gets a customer a single flavor of ice cream with a gold spoon and a few flakes of gold leaf.
