Valentine’s Day Chocolates!

It’s all about the romance. It’s about the chocolate. If you care about romance or chocolate then you’ve come to the right blog.

Here are some of the mixed boxes and solid hearts we have ready at Life by Chocolate. Mixed chocolates include chocolates that look like hearts. Some are decorated hearts. Call us and tell us what you want. You can specify exactly the chocolates you want or buy one of my mixes. Just ask for Fair Trade if you want the Fair Trade. Right now I only have 70% Dark Chocolate in the Fair Trade Chocolate. Call us at 518 966 5219. Check out these pictures.

I love this Book Heart. It’s just so appropriate for so many people. Aunts, moms, and wives.

Best part of all, it has a lot of chocolate in it. Here are some of the chocolates I put in the box. These shown in the picture are made with Fair Trade Chocolate (70%). Yummer.

Or you can get THIS heart. It’s a royal treat. Isn’t it just lovely?
Same chocolate, Fair Trade 70%, different mix of ingredients.

Here is a Sassy Loving Heart. Again, this is the Fair Trade Dark Chocolate I use. This chocolate is 100% American Chocolate. The other one I use is Swiss and it’s also great.

This is my solid rose heart. You can also get one without the rose decoration and it’s about an ounce lighter. You can get this heart or the plain heart in the Sassy Loving Heart box or in the Satin Loving Heart box.

This is the very plush Satin Loving Heart. All of these boxes contain about 4-7 oz of chocolate, depending on the box. The Rose Solid Heart is about 4 oz and the smaller plain heart is about 3 oz. That’s a lot of chocolate.

You can get a mix of chocolates in this satin box. Nice.

Or a solid piece of heaven. Yummer.

Check out this Silver Double Heart. Fantastic. This hold a lot of chocolate.

Just ask for mixed chocolates or specify what you want. Go to and ask for exactly what you want. The web store will be up in a week or two but in the meantime, just call us and we’ll be happy to rush you a great box of chocolates.

It is SO lovely right now with all the snow

I’ve been taking pictures and Kim has been taking pictures. I’ll do a snow montage shortly.

We went to Holyoke, MA so that Kim could go to a yarn shop. My mom and I went to eat Tibetan food and scoped out two chocolate shops. Decent chocolates but at one, the chocolatier was too heavy handed, literally, the truffles must have weighed a quarter pound each, and the other had their chocolates made elsewhere. My mother thought they all looked stale. Perhaps.

That was New Year’s Eve. This is New Year’s Day. Happy New Year. Don’t forget about the chocolate sale. All those beautiful chocolate now on sale so that I can make more for Valentine’s Day.

You know, I’m not just satisfied created great chocolates, I also want to create works of art. I think I have achieved a measure of that with the cordials and the Tea Set, though, I must say, I also love my Orange Sin (The Cinnamon Ganache). I think I may call it Orangel Sin. 😉
