For most of these desserts, it's a combination of the experience and rarity of the ingredients that make them so indulgent.

But for the real heavy hitters on this list, it's more about the trinkets and collectors' items that you get to keep once (and if) you finish the delectable delicacy.

For some, a combination of sweets served over some Dom Perignon might only be the cherry on top of the gorgeous diamond they're receiving alongside it.

If that doesn't exactly suit your lifestyle, feel free to whip out that carton of ice cream and drool over these pictures instead.

We'll probably be doing the same.
