Happy Valentine’s Day! This day is always full with of hugs, kisses, and of course the ever yet tempting, chocolate. Let’s face it; Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without chocolate. Some of us get it from our partners, some of us give it to our children, and some of us are just content with buying for ourselves and enjoying it solo style. This year, how about heading to an authentic chocolate shop to make this Valentine’s Day extra special?
Brooklyn Mamas has got you covered with a list of affordable, and of course, mouth watering Brooklyn-based chocolate shops.
Described as “salted-caramel-Heaven”, this chocolate shop has definitely received tons of well-deserved praise. All of their chocolate is made fresh right in the back of this cute nook in Boreum Hill. The space makes for a perfect romantic…not “cheesy” Valentine’s Day date. If you are with that special someone, you can be cute and share some yummy goods. Or, if you are with a friend, you can order a couple of beers to enjoy with your fresh chocolate.
Valentine’s Day special: Online you can order a heart shaped box of six salt caramels for $14, a box of six Prosecco/Rasberry chocolates for $14, and a box of 12 salt caramels for $24. You can also order a heart shaped lollie for only $2.00.
