Covered with 23-carat gold, the chocolate costs 7,728 euros (approximately ₹ 6,00,000)

With a filling of saffron threads, white truffle, vanilla from Madagascar and gold flakes, it is part of a limited edition of 1,000 bonbons.

Created by Portuguese chocolatier Daniel Gomes, the diamond-shaped chocolate has been certified as the world's most expensive by the Guinness Book of Records.

It's packaged in black lacquered wooden base with a gold serial number engraving and the box is coated with thousands of Swarovski crystals and pearls, and finished off with a gold ribbon handle.

Take a look at how it is prepared!
