Drumstick Chocolate Pizza is one of our newest creations and rapidly becoming an instant classic. The idea actually came to us through a Facebook contest we ran on our website where followers could suggest new ideas for the next Chocolate Pizza. We received hundreds but the winner was one that picked up on the Drumstick theme from one of our chocolate specialties. Years ago, we created a Drumstick – a 4 inch salted pretzel rod covered in caramel, rolled in nuts, drenched in milk or dark chocolate and sprinkled with a dash of sea salt. Our contest winner said make a Chocolate Pizza like that. It was a flash of genius so we did.
This new Chocolate Pizza is a twist of our very popular caramel and nut Drumstick. We start with gourmet milk or dark chocolate, blend in salted pretzel pieces and top it with caramel, cashews, pecans, walnuts and salted caramel pieces with a border of pink Himalayan sea salt. Simply amazing! Add our famous Peanut Butter Wings – crisp, rippled potato chips covered in creamy peanut butter and drenched in rich milk or dark chocolate – for a sweet “Pizza & Wings Combo.”
It was about 30 years ago that Chocolate Pizza Company started in the small Upstate New York community of Marcellus. Over the decades, it has grown into America’s gold standard of Chocolate Pizza, earning a federally registered trademark for the unique confection. The company and its line-up of more than 100 gourmet chocolate specialties has been featured on Food Network, Food Network Canada, NBC’s Today Show, ABC News and other major media. At the heart of our success is the best teams of chocolatiers who create this amazing masterpiece by blending the highest quality Swiss-style chocolate with homemade English toffee. Handcrafted and original, no two Chocolate Pizzas are ever the same so you get a unique gift every time.
The process starts by tempering the chocolate with a technique that raises and lowers the temperature in very precise ways to change the physical properties within the chocolate. The controlled melting of the chocolate is critical to obtaining a high quality final product. Done correctly, tempering gives the chocolate to strength, shine and a velvety, melt-in-your-mouth feel.
Once the toffee is done bubbling away it cools on baking sheets before going to a food processor to be ground fine and then stirred into our melted chocolate. Once blended, we scoop it into genuine pizza pans and add an array of toppings including your favorite candies or nuts.
For customers who want to personalize a Chocolate Pizzas for birthdays, holidays, anniversaries or special occasions, our chocolatiers create hand-decorated masterpieces. We use white chocolate to script a name, greeting or design by hand – an amazing talent to watch – but it gives it that personal touch. You know when you open a custom Chocolate Pizza that it was made just for you.
We have a very cool box to serve our Chocolate Pizza in. It has viewing windows in the top that let you see the delicious treat within. On the inside, the box holds the Chocolate Pizza snug and rests it on a cushion that protects it during shipment. We have fans across the globe. Chocolate lovers on 6 continents have ordered our chocolate specialties and we ship anywhere. Once your Chocolate Pizza arrives, store it out of direct sunlight and in a cool, room temperature location between 55-70 degrees (F). It doesn’t need to be refrigerated or frozen and will stay fresh for months at room temperature. Remember, chocolate melts quickly above 75 degrees so avoid over-handling the product or exposing it to direct sunlight or a warm environment.
