While we've been featuring plenty of fabulous gift ideas for Valentine's Day, you may be wondering where on earth are the chocolate gifts? Well, wonder no more! Giving chocolate is a delicious display of affection and here are my favorite cocoa-covered gifts.
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and since I don't have a Valentine, I want to surprise my single, older brother with a special gift. It may be cliché, but I want to send him a box of chocolates. Can you help me find the perfect box of chocolates? Look for sweets that aren't too feminine or romantic — we're shopping for my brother! Save anything that is decadent, original, or filled with innovative flavors. Bookmark the boxes in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword tag, Box of Chocolates. Thanks, I'm looking forward to seeing what you discover!

For many people, a big New Year's resolution is giving up sweets — chocolate in particular. You might consider bending the rules in the name of romance by trying an Afrodisiac chocolate bar, which could send you and your partner into a pleasurable oblivion.
The sensual chocolates come in four flavors: Passion Fruit Mango Black Sesame, French Rose Persimmon, Kiwi Lime Pistachio Sea Salt, and Lemon Ginger Cayenne. All made with 72 percent dark chocolate, each one is supposed to evoke a different sort of desire.
So after dinner, instead of dessert slip your big love a bit of chocolate and see what unravels.
Chocolates used to be reserved for Valentine's Day and Easter, however these days you can find themed chocolates for every holiday, including Thanksgiving. From chocolate cornucopias to dark chocolate turkeys, there's something for every chocoholic this Thanksgiving. If your idea of holiday celebrations involve gobbling down a wee chocolate squirrel, then you're in luck! For a few of my favorite Thanksgiving-themed chocolates, scroll through the list below.
Today is National S'mores Day and while you could easily whip up a batch by going for the standard graham crackers, Hershey's bar and jet-puff marshmallows, why not treat yourself to something a little more decadent? Recchiuti Chocolates of San Francisco is offering a deluxe S'more's Kit for you to savor. The eight serving kit comes complete with handmade vanilla bean marshmallows, delicious Recchiuti Grahams and a wonderfully bittersweet (85%) chocolate bar. The kit will cost you $22, but National S'mores Day only comes once a year, and besides you're worth it, right?
Today is Valentine's Day and you're very happy, very bitter or very annoyed about this day dedicated to love. Despite how you feel about Valentine's Day, today is the day that we all do something we normally wouldn't, health wise. So what is your Valentine's Day vice?
I've been infatuated with Valentine's Day all week and today is no different. You aided me in my romantic fascination by saving your sweetly sappy foodie finds in the Yum Market on TeamSugar. How could I not share a few of the best ones with you all???
TNgirl found the cutest heart fondue set at the reasonable price of $15. I like how it's portable and only needs a candle, excellent for the on-go-gal. Oh and the two metal fondue forks with hearts on the end are absolutely adorable.
