A Homemade Box of Chocolates

Kick the standard Valentine's box of chocolates up a few levels by skipping the sweets shop in favor of your own kitchen. Homemade chocolates are surprisingly easy to make, and you can tailor the selection to your sweetheart's tastes, whether homey Chocolate and Peanut Butter Nougat Squares, spiced Cardamom-Infused Milk Chocolate Truffles, or retro-classic Chocolate-Covered Cherry Cordials. Simply wrapped in tissue or served on a beautiful dessert plate, it's a romantic treat far more elegant than anything you could buy in the store.
