An Un-Serendipitous Dessert

At the Boca Raton Resort lies a wonderful little restaurant called Serendipity 3. It's a slice of the small/eclectic/ΓΌber-famous restaraunt in Manhattan of the same name (maybe you've heard of it...). I have been fortunate enough to go to the one in New York where it all started, but have yet to dine at the one in my own backyard (you have to be a guest at the hotel to get in). I checked it out on the Boca Raton Resort website and saw a photo of on of their frozen treats, the Pirates Treasure Chest:
Inside a chocolate treasure chest are scoops of ice cream, cakes, cookies, cones and berries. Looks yummy, right? It will cost you a cool $75 to taste this baby. So, in my stinginess, I decided to forgo the cost of renting a room or sneaking in to the hotel to get to Serendipity (and then shelling out more dough), I decided "Hey, I'm artistic. I can totally recreate this at home!" and began my supermarket quest for the proper ingredients. Here is the documented process and result, photographed by my sister.

Preparing the treasure chest.

Gold!!!

It's all in the details...


Chocolate dipped sprinkle cones!

Assembly time. *Note- it would behoove you to use an ice cream scoop instead of trying to shape the ice cream balls with your hands! ya....  


Time to eat!

On a related note, here are some cute pics from the 1 year anniversary of Serendipity's opening in Las Vegas at Caesar's Palace, hosted by Holly Madison. (How cute is her dress and candy necklace?!)

that looks absolutely delicious! i loved how you re-created it. your version looks exactly the same as serendipity 3's version! don't worry, i wouldn't want to be paying $75+a hotel fee either! home-made is the way to go! :)
