This pretty almond bark made by Laura’s Chocolates, a chocolatier who my mom found at the Cooperstown Farmer’s Market. I think she enjoys showing me that chocolate companies can be found most everywhere, even in rural Upstate New York. The almond bark was lovely and needed to be eaten fresh, as like most things found at a farmer’s market.
Peppermint Cremes are a confection usually made with sugar and cream cheese and flavored with peppermint oil. These are festively heart shaped. I love how there’s glints from the granulated sugar on them.
Nothing says love like three beautifully made heart truffles. I love the iridescent shimmer these have and it shows how even a simple detail can make chocolate feel more special.
Nothing says “Happy Valentine’s Day” like a box of chocolates in a heart shaped box. This box from See’s is filled with all sorts of chocolate goodies. With boxes as large and decorated as this it’s hard to tell which part of the gift is the treat.
Even though these candies sport more unconventional colors, they still convey the feeling of Valentine’s Day.
