Delicious handcrafted fudge like no other. Made in-house in small batches, we specialize in creative, multi-layered gourmet fudge. Free nationwide shipping over $25!

Z. Cioccolato’s layered fudge has been featured on the Cooking Channel’s “Unique Sweets” show and was also ranked in the top 25 of all shops in America (MSN Top 25 List). The fudge is made in small batches, only 6 pounds at a time, and is still made in a good old fashioned baking pan just like you would at home. Their signature flavor is the Peanut Butter Pie which has seven different layers inside, including caramel, marshmallow, heath, oreo, milk chocolate, and peanut butter fudge.

 

 

My Story

Hi, I'm Mike, the owner of Z. Cioccolato.
Sweets have always been my weakness and
retail has always been in my blood.
 
I was just 14 years old working as a box boy in my grandfather's department store in Humboldt County when I fell in love with retail. Years later my weakness for sweets sprang to life when I opened Lickity Split, my own frozen yogurt shop.  
 
After that, I found myself back in retail selling pillows for an Italian bedding company, but I couldn’t get my mind off the idea of owning my own sweets shop. 
 
In 2015 I learned the original owners of Z. Cioccolato were retiring and I leapt at the opportunity.  And that’s how I went from selling pillows to being a Chocolatier!
