Valentine’s Day Chocolate, Outside the Box

It’s hard to go wrong giving top-tier chocolate for Valentine’s Day, but the boxed assortment of truffles or bon-bons is a little too easy. Instead, try one of these items, still packed with serious chocolate cred, but much more surprising.

    Fondue for Two

    Dessert doesn’t get simpler or more charming than Aux Anysetiers du Roy Chocolate Fondue; just heat the stoneware pot (the perfect size for two) in the microwave or in a bowl of boiling water, and get your fruit, pound cake, and other dippers ready. It’s available in basic 70% dark chocolate, and or enhanced with simple flavors such as sea salt or hazelnut.

    That Honey Feeling

    Savannah, Georgia-based chocolatier Adam Turoni coats gooey, floral, sunshine-sweet local honeycomb in exceptionally smooth dark chocolate, and then dusts the tiny bars in edible gold. They’re sold together with a chunk of Savannah Bee Company raw acacia honeycomb and salted caramel beeswa lip balm. It’s a gift that any honey-lover would adore (hint, hint).

    Cocoa Creation

    Taza’s Mexican-style chocolate is minimally processed, giving it an intriguingly coarse texture and fruity, toasty flavor. These disks can be eaten out of hand, but we like them best shaved into warm milk or water for a delicious drink. Spicy flavors like guajillo and salt and pepper pack a punch, while ginger, orange, and cinnamon are more subtle. They’re sold individually, but the 6-flavor variety pack makes a fabulous gift for a chocolate lover.

    Nuts for Chocolate

    If your sweetheart likes Nutella, they’ll love its cousin, Il Colle del Gusto’s Granellona Brut. Made with dark chocolate, olive oil, and crunchy pieces of hazelnut, it’s rich and not too sweet. Try it drizzled over ice cream or spread on toast (or standing in the kitchen with a spoon late at night—we won’t judge).

    A Library of Chocolate

    Book and chocolate lovers alike will want to add Voges Haut-Chocolat‘s selection of 9 1/2-oz. bars to their own permanent library of treats. Consisting of 45-, 62-, and 72-percent cacao bars in such exotic flavors as smoky bacon, goji berry, matcha, guajillo and chipotle chili, as well as more common varieties like caramel toffee and coconut, these high-quality, fair-trade and ethically sourced chocolates are a creative way to say “I love you…now share your chocolate!”

    Berry, Berry Good

    While we can’t pretend that chocolate-covered strawberries are a particularly unique Valentine’s Day gift, we can say these from the Chocolate Covered Company might be the best you’ve ever had. Why? A dozen large, ripe strawberries are doused first in a creamy caramel and then a milk chocolate from Belgian. They’re then capped off with a sprinkle of fine sea salt before being packed up in a lovely gift box.

    Say Cheesecake Pops

    Fads come and go, but thankfully, cake pops, especially those from From You Flowers, are here to stay. Not surprising since these are no ordinary cake pops: Ten hand-dipped artisan cheesecake bites are coated with dark, milk and white Belgian chocolate. Each is then decorated with sprinkles and hearts to show your love for your love.
