A box of only four pieces of their chocolates costs $12.Now consider the fact that the Chocolate Picnic Steamer Trunk contains500 pieces of chocolate ganache, five pounds of chocolate bark andcroquettes, eighty ounces of Aztec hot chocolate in four tins, a twenty-ouncetin of Aztec Iced Chocolate, eight Aztec Hot Chocolate Bars, a teapot andinfuser, two china teacups, a leather-bound journal and a small library of  books on chocolate.That’s bound to be a bit pricey, isn’t it? Well, it may come as something of a shock that the steamer trunk only costs$15,000. Of course, you also have to purchase it in person from their New  York store. Surely that will make up for the incredibly low price of the world’s most expensive box of chocolates
