Crazy Decadent Desserts
I'm trying to come up with a list: Who has the most obscenely decadent desserts in LA? Not just sinful, but outrageously priced, too. Thanks!!
- Copetta at Pizzaria Mozza : Caramel gelato, crisp cookie, (plenty of ooey) marshmallow, salted peanuts. A guilty, guilty pleasure. $9
- Creme Brulee at Comme Ca : Essentially sweet vanilla butter with caramelized sugar on top. So much more rich than your average vanilla creme brulee. $8
I'm not so sure about 'outrageously priced'. These seem pretty standard in price (for mid- level dining), but I thought they stood out among what you'd normally think of as decadent, namely, chocolate desserts.
Cynthia's Blackberry Cobbler - massive in size and priced at 9 dollars, or maybe more now
SimonLA's Junk Food Platter at the Sofitel
Butterscotch Budino at Mozza
Desserts at Cut are 14 bucks - the apricot vol-au-vent was good (is it still there?) and the chocolate pudding cake
Chocolate Mille-Feuille at Hatfield's - double digit price
Mastro's Butter Cake

Second Simon LA's junk food platter...$25 bucks, comes with homeade snowballs, rice krispy treats (choc and vanilla,) cookies, cupcakes, kettle corn, cotton candy and a shake. I may be forgetting something, too.
The dessert tasting menu at Providence! Ranges from $30 to $50, for 3 to 8 courses ($40 to $80 with wine pairing). In my experience the desserts tend to be light on the palate rather than super-rich, but I find it rather decadent to have several courses of delicious desserts!
For a single dessert, the peanut butter truffle cake at Hatfield's is pretty decadent. Probably around $9 but I'm not sure.
