Unable to find jobs in their chosen professions after graduation, Eric Heinbockel, Nick LaCava and Fabian Kaempfer decided to start a customizable-chocolate company. They turned to friends and family for funding. Chocomize had $400,000 in sales in its first year after it got recognition from Oprah Winfrey's magazine and celebrities such as Travel Channel's Andrew Zimmern. Visitors to Chocomize's website can pick between bars made of white, dark and milk chocolate and then add toppings.
