Dessert is always a luxury. However, there is a line, when that cherry on top of the dessert becomes just plain over-the-top.

Miami, a town known for extravagance, is so indulgent in sweets that we are actually leaving out the Guinness World Record-holding $1,000 Golden Opulence Sundae at Serendipity 3.

Now for the list we might be able to afford to sink our sweet tooth into.

Explosive dessert.
5. La Bamba at Toro Toro
La Bamba ($20 for two people) is a sweet melody of dulce de leche, strawberry ice cream, cream cheese mousse, almond cookie crumbs, and drizzles of a caramel, vanilla and berry sauce all encased in a chocolate shell. When the dessert arrives to the table it gets the red carpet plastic tablecloth rolled out. This sphere of dessert is dropped onto the table where it explodes. You are then encouraged to eat with your hands, using the chocolate shell shrapnel to scoop up the innards. This item debuts on menus today, Valentine's Day, where it will remain as a permanent item.

If you like it, then you should deep fry it.
4. Deep Fried Bread Pudding at Crackers Casual Dining
Bread pudding is already a splurge as it contains carb-loaded bread, creamy milk, eggs, sugar and is bejeweled by nature's candy: raisins. At Crackers, their bread pudding ($4.95) is sliced into squares where each pillow is then deep fried until golden brown. It is something that you should only be able to get once a year at some state fair, but this is served year-round. Need more? It is topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzled with caramel sauce.
