Valentine's Day Chocolate Gifts

Galaxy Desserts: Chocolate Satisfaction Mousse Cake
I think Chocolate is the most appropriate gift to give on Valentine's Day. You can make homemade chocolate gifts such as:

Chocolate Cherry Truffles 
Valentine's Day Chocolate Heart Shaped Truffles
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Chocolate Souffles
Chocolate Marshmallow Hearts

Or you can Buy:
Truffles and Candy: Check out your local chocolatier.
Heart Shaped Chocolate Cakes, Cookies, Brownies: Check out your local Bakery or Specialty Supermarket 

I'm lucky I live in the San Francisco Bay Area because there are so many wonderful chocolate shops and bakeries.

Williams Sonoma, besides having lots of choices for Valentine's Day gifts such as heart shaped cookie cutters, molds, pans, and more, has some great chocolate products. Here are two of my favorites.

S'mores Hugs and Kisses from Williams Sonoma
Created by hand at Two Hearts Bakery in San Francisco, S’mores are made by hand. Graham crackers are baked with a touch of wildflower honey and Saigon cinnamon. Hand-cut marshmallow is made with Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon vanilla. Dipped in Guittard milk or dark couverture chocolate. Packaged in a gift box tied with red ribbon. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Red Velvet Cake from Williams Sonoma
Heart-shaped version of the classic red velvet cake combines two  layers of rich, fudgy devil’s food cake with fluffy vanilla buttercream frosting. From the Perfect Endings vintage cake collection, it is made using premium ingredients, following an old family recipe.  8" diam., 2" high. A Williams Sonoma exclusive. (might be too late since you can't buy this at the store, but if it's still available, it's really yummy)

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!  What chocolate treats are you giving or having?

That heart shaped Red Velvet Cake from Williams Sonoma would be a welcome in my home today.

We barely even celebrated Valentine's Day this year. I did buy myself a bag of Dove Milk Chocolate hearts though. ;-)
