A box of chocolates is a popular Valentine’s Day gift, but if you’re not going to give the typical Dozen Roses, why give an ordinary box of chocolates? Instead, consider Valentine Hot Chocolate on a Stick.
Similar to the Hot Chocolate Bombs, you melt these into a warm cup of milk or water to make a delectable chocolate drink. There are two delicious choices, either Belgian Milk Chocolate or French Dark Truffle. Either choice is made from couverture chocolate, meaning it has a higher percentage of cocoa butter, for better melting and a creamier flavor. They are handmade in California.
Not every chilly day is created equal. Maybe it’s “We took the long way home” cold. Or “I can’t feel your kisses” cold. For any kind of cold they may be coming in from, this hot chocolate trio will give them cozy comfort. Choose from either Belgian Milk Chocolate or French Dark Truffle: Each stick is a single serving—just stir it into milk or water—and made from couverture (fancy for “finer grounds and more cocoa butter”) chocolate. Topped with candy hearts, they make a sweet treat for nights in. Created by Tyler Geertsen. Handmade in California.
Valentine Hot Chocolate on a Stick is available for $15 for a set of 3 at Uncommon Goods. Update: Now they are sold out of the Valentines versions, but you can still get the standard Hot Chocolate on a Stick. They don’t have the conversation hearts, but they come in a variety of delectable flavors and cost $36 for a set of 8.
