Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers

Huddled around a firepit with your family and friends is a classic summer pastime. Late night conversations among some yummy s’mores – can it get any better than that? Yes, yes it can. If you’re a lover of s’mores, be prepared to take your snack game to the next level with Stefanelli’s chocolate covered graham crackers

These are a perfect asset to your fireside evenings. Now you can use our chocolate covered graham crackers instead of actually buying chocolate bars (or you can still buy the chocolate for a tastier, ooey-gooier treat). These are perfect as a quick snack for just about any other occasion, too. And if you really want to take your s’more to the next level, check out Stefanelli’s chocolate covered marshmallows for a death-by-chocolate type of evening.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries are a versatile treat that can make their way into a plethora of occasions. If you’re looking forward to a Sunday afternoon in the park grazing on a selection of picnic goodies, adding chocolate covered strawberries can give your lazy day some oomph. These fresh, decadent fruits are also the perfect addition to a charcuterie board, as they can easily elevate your spread.

Stefanelli’s cares about providing only the best for our customers, so our chocolate covered strawberries can only be purchased at our physical locations.

Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Chocolate covered pretzels are a great portable snack if you’re on the go this summer. If you’re planning on a long road trip, a day out at the park, or pulling up to a drive-thru movie theatre, having a sweet and salty combination can help stave off those hangry feelings. Put these pretzels in a bowl of assorted snacks, dip them in peanut butter, or just eat them by themselves. Really, chocolate covered pretzels are a great match for any occasion because they’re a tried and true favorite.

Chocolate Covered Nuts

Nuts are an ideal snacking companion, as they’re a simple, healthy snack to have around. Stefanelli’s offers a wide variety of chocolate covered nuts that can be a perfect pairing to any spread you conjure up. We offer chocolate covered almonds, cashews, and brazil nuts, all of which come covered in our handcrafted milk chocolate. 

For those with a sweet tooth that are nuts about nuts, we recommend buying an assortment of our chocolate covered nuts so that you can have a variety to choose from.

Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans

Stefanelli’s three varieties of chocolate covered espresso beans are bound to keep you nicely caffeinated while making sure your taste buds are satisfied. We offer dark chocolate and milk chocolate covered espresso beans, as well as a New York mix, which is coated with favorite coffeeshop flavors that will have you feeling energized in no time. 

These are perfect as an ice cream topping if you want to add a little something extra to your end-of-the-day dessert (and if you want to go crazy, layer them over some coffee flavored ice cream). Chocolate covered espresso beans are an easily portable snack that you can take anywhere you go to stay rejuvenated (just make sure it’s the beans and not the sugar high keeping your spirits up).

How to Keep Chocolate From Melting in the Heat

So we’ve given you some suggestions on the tastiest chocolate covered treats to sweeten up your summer, but how are you going to protect these goodies from the summer heat? 

If you’re enjoying some chocolate outside, make sure that you store your treats away from direct sunlight. If it’s cool enough and the chocolate won’t be outside long, consider placing it in a dark, cool, shaded area. Be sure to not place your chocolate on a surface that’s in the shade, but still warm to the touch. You may need to consider bringing a small insulated container or cooler to keep your chocolate in, so you can enjoy your sweets all day long. 

If you’re wondering how to keep your chocolate from melting without a refrigerator or cooler, consider putting your chocolate indoors at room temperature if possible. Once the temperature starts heading toward the 70s and higher, your chocolate may be at risk. And if you’re really in a pinch, you may just have to consider eating the chocolate in question (don’t worry, we won’t judge).

Stefanelli’s Won’t Dessert You This Summer

Summer is about having fun and enjoying the warmer days. What better way to spend that time than with handcrafted chocolate by your side? Let Stefanelli’s make your summer sweet with our decadent chocolates that will make you melt.
