When Only Chocolate Will Do

HeartsdesireWe’ve got nothing against flowers, but there’s something to be said for a heart-shaped box filled with a decadent assortment of chocolates. To choose your own, there’s The Basket and The Bean (Watchung Plaza), Grove Street Pharmacy (Grove Street near Walnut), Accents with Flowers (Church St.), Gimmee Jimmy’s (Church St.), Holsten’s (Broad Street in Bloomfield) or Sugar Free Sensations (Bloomfield Ave). Serious chocolate lovers make the pilgrimage to Verona’s Chocolatier Anais (526 Bloomfield Ave, opposite Verona Park). If the heady scent of cocoa doesn’t get you swooning, the selection of handmade chocolates will, with everything from truffles to old-fashioned almond crunch to dark chocolate squares filled with an amazing pistachio filling. The jumbo heart pictured here set us back $35, but we’re not complaining.
