This Valentine’s Day, tell your special someone (or something, depending on your monstery tastes) how you feel with a box of chocolates. While all the choices we’ve listed may not be dark chocolate, per se, they will showcase your delightfully dark feelings in chocolate form. Pair these with a bottle of wine, or bring a tasty victim along for a nice dinner at home.
Tell your Valentine that you love him or her (or it)…to death!
Last year, SML showed you ways to give a gift from the heart, by giving an anatomically correct heart. Continue the tradition with this delicious chocolate heart from designer Naoto Fukasawa.
“Make like an Aztec priest and crack this baby open. Once broken, this heart of darkness (72% dark, that is) pulses with buttery, crunchy, caramelized pastry crumbs and miniature malted milk balls. Each pinkish-red dusted heart comes packaged a la the meat counter – served up on a Styrofoam tray and wrapped in plastic wrap.”
A decadence available only in the heart of New York City, Bond Street Chocolate offers a set of six 72% solid dark chocolate skulls dusted with metallic silver. Show your paramour that you know how to take a bite out of life by taking a bite out of these skulls.
Delivered in a gold-embossed heart shaped box, these 18 pieces of custom, gold-leaf accented Swiss chocolates include white chocolate bones and skeletal hands, caramel-filled (and anatomically correct) hearts, peanut butter cup coffins, and two jumbo chocolate skulls. The only vegan Valentine’s body parts in Bethlehem, PA.
PRICE: $75 – SOLD OUT
This collection from British chocolatier and cocoa grower, Hotel Chocolat, features a limited edition Dead Gorgeous matte black, satin-trimmed casket, filled with 28 chocolates finished with a 24-carat edible gold laughing skull design.
Think your lovely dinner date would be put off by chocolate versions of human skulls and hearts? How about a cute and cuddly animal instead? Conjurer’s Kitchen has a variety available including crow, monkeys, barn owl, and kittens. Chocolate painted monkey skull is pictured.
SML sends a big “Thank you!” to Horrific Finds for inspiring this post. Do you have a favorite chocolate heart and skull supplier? We’d love to know more about them. Post details in the comments!
