Dazzle Holiday Visitors with Pizzaz
Written By Heather King
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and nothing brings more joy to the holiday season than frosty mornings and the delicious taste of peppermint candy canes. Cache Toffee founder Lori Darr let the magic of winter inspire her to dress her buttery toffee with a blanket of white chocolate snow and a spark of heat for her limited-edition holiday toffee: Pizzaz. Let’s bite into the delectable ingredients that come together to make Pizzaz.
Peppermint Candy Canes
It’s hard to separate the delight of striped candy canes from holiday merriment. That’s why we’ve added their sweet and minty flavor to our Pizzaz toffee to bring an extra festive feeling to you in every bite.
And our peppermint has sweet benefits, too. Peppermint made with essential oils or extracts derived from real peppermint leaves means that your toffee is free of harmful chemicals, artificial flavors, and corn syrup.
This means you can enjoy the crisp and clean flavor of peppermint guilt-free without worrying about processed sweeteners high in fructose or the unpleasant aftertaste of corn syrup.
The festive fun of peppermint candy canes is a must-have this holiday season. So go ahead, indulge in a piece of pepperminty Pizzaz that’s equally good for you, and reap its benefits.
Pink Peppercorns not only add a distinct flavor to our limited-edition toffee but are also surprisingly good for your health.
They’re packed with vitamins A, C, and B6, as well as potassium, magnesium, iron, and calcium. The antioxidant properties they provide help regulate blood pressure and promote heart health. Pink peppercorns can even help reduce acne and stimulate weight loss.
But what are they exactly? Pink peppercorns are actually dried berries that come from a South American tree called Schinus molle. Their fragrant, subtly sweet, and slightly tangy flavor makes them versatile in sweet and savory foods. This is because the flavor of pink peppercorns is mild enough to enhance dishes without being overpowering. Its fruity and floral notes pair well with an assortment of flavors, and the color adds interest to every bite. In short, pink peppercorns offer an extra zing to this sweet treat.
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
You might think that all salt tastes the same, but you would be surprised. Pink Himalayan Sea Salt has a distinctly milder mineral flavor than table salt and contains lower sodium levels. It’s hand-harvested from salt caves at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in northern Pakistan.
The beautiful pink color of it is due to the presence of iron oxide and traces of other minerals—including zinc, magnesium, calcium, copper, and iron. Those minerals are essential in regulating healthy blood pressure, improving metabolism, and keeping bones healthy.
Used as a finishing salt on Pizzaz, it’s an outstanding balance to the white and dark chocolates and sweet candy cane sparkles. You’ll find that the Himalayan Sea Salt helps this toffee pair beautifully with nuts, spices, chocolate, and caramel too.
White chocolate, the sweet and creamy counterpart to its dark chocolate sibling, is often overlooked in the confectionery world.
White chocolate is made with cocoa butter, sugar, and milk solids, which gives it a sweet and creamy taste and a smooth and velvety texture that melts in your mouth. Its subtle flavor profile makes it perfect to add sweetness to Pizzaz without overpowering the other flavors.
Cocoa butter, which is the primary ingredient of white chocolate, contains oleic acid, which helps lower harmful cholesterol levels in the body.
Additionally, white chocolate contains antioxidants that protect the cells from damage and reduce the risk of heart disease. Finally, it’s an excellent source of calcium, which is essential for healthy bones and teeth.
Now is your chance to indulge in the creamy, smooth, and velvety luxury that is white chocolate drizzled generously over every bite of Pizzaz.
Bean-to-Bar Dark Chocolate
Acting as the snow-covered branches of our winter wonderland toffee, dark chocolate provides a bold and complex flavor profile with notes of fruit, nuts, and spices with a silky texture. Even better, dark chocolate offers an array of health benefits.

Pizzaz is a beautiful holiday gift or a sweet treat for any wintertime occasion.
Glittering with peppermint candy cane pieces and pops of pink peppercorns atop white and dark chocolate, Pizzaz adds a refreshing sparkle to the crunchy, buttery goodness of the Cache Toffee you know and love.
