A box of chocolates is the quintessential Valentine's Day gift. What says Valentine's Day more than a beautiful box of delicately decorated truffles? If you're looking to give chocolate, here are my top picks:
For the single princess who has yet to find her prince charming, this box of frog prince chocolates is perfect. It's a hopeful reminder that love can be found in the most unexpected places and in the moments when we least predict it. They are on sale for $20, so hurry and order a box soon.
You know I'm mad about minis and I love this tiny little box of two chocolate truffles. You won't have to feel guilty when you give this box of chocolates because it has only 2 chocolates! Indulge in chocolate and moderation.

One of America's top chocolatiers recently published a book filled with their secret recipes. The Essence of Chocolate by John Scharffenberger has over 100 chocolate recipes and explains the process behind making couture quality dark chocolate. At $35, this book is so beautiful it can rest on the coffee table of a non-baking chocolate lover.
For the gal who always like to have a little piece of chocolate at her finger tips, a clear glass jar (tied with a red satin ribbon) filled with chocolate covered cherries ($13) is an ideal gift. She can pop one (or two, or three...) in her mouth for quick sweet munching.
