Copycat Arnaud’s Strawberries Arnaud Recipe

This decadent dessert from the famed New Orleans restaurant was once touted as one of the most expensive desserts, costing over $3 million and even served with a diamond engagement ring! Our version of the famous Strawberries Arnaud recipe doesn’t include the ring but it still looks and tastes as impressive as the original.
