Delicious Chocolate from Sweetness & Light for Valentine’s Day! Delicious Chocolate makes the BEST gift for this special holiday!

Looking for Valentine’s Day gifts? Chocolate is always a top choice for Valentine’s Day! I recently had the opportunity to taste some really delicious, chocolate from Sweetness & Light! My family also loved the samples we received! (See photo above!) We received two boxes of chocolates (12 pc-1/2 milk and 1/2 dark) of some of their best sellers. So we received an assortment of Truffles and an assortment of Nuts & Chews and they definitely didn’t last long in our house! Well…the Chocolate Truffles are my favorite! (And, yes, I have stashed the remaining box away because they are THAT good!) These hand-dipped truffles are really some of the best I have ever tasted with flavors such as Cappuccino Chocolate, French Raspberry Chocolate and Kahlua Chocolate. The Nuts & Chews are also quite delicious with caramels, chocolate covered nuts, butter toffee, and more in your choice of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or 1/2 milk chocolate and 1/2 dark chocolate. I honestly believe you can find chocolate for everyone if you take a look at their website!

More About the shop:   Sweetness and Light is an old-fashioned, family-owned candy kitchen and store located in victorian Ferndale CA. All of their confections are handmade and hand-dipped in small batches using only the finest ingredients available.  Their product line includes but is not limited to salted caramel, chocolate covered caramel, chocolate truffles, nut brittle, toffee, caramels, fudges, candy bars, and bon-bons.
