The Supersized Hershey Bar

Paying $39.99 for a box of chocolates isn’t anything over the top, but paying $39.99 for a single Hershey’s bar may raise some eyebrows. Don’t look for it in vending machines – the Hershey Co. sells this 5-pound version of its classic milk chocolate bar online and at its Chocolate World retail locations.

A Truffle With Double Meaning

The most expensive single piece of chocolate on this list is this fancy made-to-order truffle by Knipschildt, which sells for $250. Enrobed in Valhrona dark chocolate and rich ganache, “La Madeline au Truffe” features a rare French truffle at its center (yes – “truffle” as in the mushroom kind) and is presented on a bed of sugar pearls.
