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!

Each pinkish-red dusted heart comes packaged a la the meat counter – served up on a Styrofoam tray and wrapped in plastic wrap.”
