Fixin’s for Your Mix-ins: The Ultimate Ice Cream Toppings

Summer is officially here, and with it comes the season of ice cream! This year, don’t settle for the ordinary — revamp your sweet cravings with a Stefanelli’s ice cream topping upgrade! Keep reading to discover the best chocolate and ice cream combos.

Peanut Butter Cups 

In 1928, a struggling dairyman called Henry Reece mixed smooth, creamy peanut butter into a chocolate confection, and the modern peanut butter cup was born! Ever since then, this delightful duo has remained one of the most popular candies in the entire world — and for good reason. 

Because our taste buds are hardwired to enjoy the contrast, the smoothness of the chocolate mixed with the saltiness of peanut butter ensures this dream team remains on top. 

Here at Stefanelli’s, we handmake every peanut butter cup with the same dedication as the techniques of old. Enjoy our cups as either an ice cream topping or a mix-in for a treat sure to tickle your tastebuds.

Chocolate-Covered Animal Crackers 

Want some extra crunch in your confection? Try our chocolate animal crackers for a special treat to beat the heat! These delicious crackers are perfect for anyone looking to recreate childhood memories —- or aiming to please the pickiest of little eaters!  

Our specialty milk chocolate is ribboned over crispy animal shapes to help them retain their signature crunch. Embrace your inner child with an ice cream topping made for smiles!

Chocolate-Covered Pretzels 

Much like peanut butter, the sweet and salty combo of pretzels and chocolate truly can’t be beat! At Stefanelli’s, we recreate this timeless treat in both rod and traditional shape varieties. 

What’s better, our pretzels seamlessly mesh with practically any flavor of ice cream. Whatever your go-to flavor, chocolate-covered pretzels are guaranteed to make your icy dessert that much sweeter! 

Chocolate-Covered Nuts 

Prepare to get a little nutty! Our collection of chocolate-covered cashews, almonds, and Brazil nuts plus ice cream is a match made in heaven. Combining sweet and salty flavors with a satisfying crunch, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

Perhaps you’re a fan of the classic rocky road? Or you're looking to craft your version of a nutty bar? Whatever your inspiration, you’ll go nuts for these delectable ice cream toppings!

Dark Chocolate Bark 

For those who love the deep, rich nuance of dark chocolate, we have the ice cream topping for you! Made in handcrafted batches, our dark chocolate bark is ideal for the connoisseur — and all with less sugar! 

Dark chocolate is unique in that it contains multiple minerals that support human health, including zinc (for immunity), phosphorous (for stronger bones), and magnesium (for better, restful sleep). Simply snap off a piece and top your creamy dessert for a sophisticated twist.
