Though food alchemists mingled magic and pseudo-science in their quixotic quest to transmute dinner into dessert, the results were typically inedible steak flan and taco-flavored ice cream. Succeed where they failed with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of chocolate pizza and other treats at Amore Chocolate Pizza Company in Leawood.
Originating as a post-performance reward for owner Annette's theater pals, Amore’s confectious rounds break the cupcake mold for creativity and deliciousness. Relieve summer-camp jitters with the large Smore Amore chocolate pizza ($29.95), studded with graham crackers and marshmallows. Or order the original break-a-leg recipe ($29.95 for large) with the works (marshmallows, peanuts, coconut crispies, white chocolate, and maraschino cherries) to get psyched before an epic one-woman performance of Shakespeare's spec script for Major Dad. Chocolate pizzas are also available in small ($11.95) and medium ($19.95) sizes, and in peanut-butter dreams and toffeelicious flavors.
For a less-intensive eat, opt for the chocolate pretzels, dunked in rich chocolate and then swirled with candy pieces. Amore’s sunflower variety ($5.95) drizzles the pretzels with a honey-roasted kernel coating. Otherwise, flavor a hot cuppa tea or transform your morning bowl of Chocolate-Frosted Sugar Bombs into a super-sweet dessert with chocolate "dirty" spoons ($8.95), which coat the fabulous mouth-shovels in five delicious chocolate flavors, including raspberry, mint, butterscotch, and peppermint.
Whether used as a gift or a self-indulgence, today’s Groupon to Amore Chocolate Pizza Company helps you prevent pizza mouth, confront a stalkerish sweet tooth, and treat bon amis to an early Bastille Day surprise.
