Whether or not you put any stock in the Hallmark holiday coming up on February 14, we think you should use the occasion to eat a little chocolate. It's been a brutal winter here in NYC, after all. And if you're buying a gift set for someone special? Go local. Here's where:

Chocolate rocks from Breads Bakery, 18 East 16th Street
Normally a pastry powerhouse, Breads is putting out gold-dusted chocolates for the holiday of love. A chocolate shell encases a creamy hazelnut-flavored interior studded with crispy bits. They're good enough that you'll want to polish off four in one sitting. Get 'em now at the bakery.

Chocolate-dipped sea salt caramels from Nunu Chocolates, 529 Atlantic Avenue
Go right for the heart (shaped box) and buy your sweetheart a dozen hand-dipped sea salt caramels from this beloved Brooklyn chocolate-maker. Alternatively, try the Prosecco ganaches. Buying for a beer or cocktail lover? There's a box for that, and the chocolates are injected with absinthe, rye, or a local craft brew.
