Chocolate Heart Valentine's Day Giveaway

MBE partnered with Sugar Plum Chocolates for this review & giveaway

Valentine's Day Traditions


Besides hearts and valentines, what's the thing that most often comes to mind when you think about Valentine's Day? That's right: Chocolate. But have you ever wondered about the history of chocolate for Valentine's Day and how that delicious confection first came to be associated with the Day of Hearts? More generally, how chocolate grew into such a strong symbol of love year-round? Though this holiday has its roots in the 1300s, here's a fun fact: It wasn't until the Victorian era in the 1840s that giving chocolate in decorated gift boxes came into vogue.


Valentines Day Chocolate Heart


Modern Chocolate Heart Pizza Gift Box


Fast forward a few centuries to 2021. Leading the pack of companies bringing this sweet treat to the masses in new and untraditional ways this Valentine's Day is family-owned chocolate boutique Sugar Plum Chocolates. What sets Sugar Plum apart from other online shops is their wide selection of beautifully packaged and unique hand-made chocolate items made in the USA which are available for shipping domestically as well as abroad. 

Why give a traditional simple heart-shaped box of chocolate candy? Instead surprise someone special and show how much you love them with a fun, oversized Sugar Plum's Chocolate Heart Pizza ($40). 

Equally perfect for both romantic and galentine recipients, this beautiful, yummy gift boxed giant chocolate confection comes with a wood mallet (to break the candy into delicious bite-size pieces) turning this present into a broken heart for Valentine's Day that will make them smile. Simply tie a red satin ribbon in a bow to the hammer, as I have done for a personal touch, to make this even more memorable.

Sugar Plum Chocolate Heart Pizza

By the way, this Chocolate Heart Pizza is available year-round from Sugar Plum, not just for February 14th.  That's a good thing, because I can think of so many other occasions when sending a gift of love like this would be so appreciated, just to cheer someone special up, or even as a gift to yourself.

Other Sugar Plum Valentine Gift Ideas


The Sugar Plum Chocolate Pizza gift set is of course fun and delicious. But, I'm also loving this imaginative wine bottle shaped box filled with 12 Sugar Plum Truffles. The handcrafted Wine Truffle Box Assortment ($35) varieties include milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolate as well as exotic flavors like Lemon Meringue, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Kaluha-White Russian, to name a few of the choices. Another of my personal picks for Valentine's Day is the brand's 4-pack of pretty pink 3.5 ounce delectable Strawberry Cheesecake Chocolate Bars, totaling 1 pound of pretty pink, creamy and luscious sweetness.

Even if you're still set on giving a heart shaped box of something sweet, Sugar Plum has you covered with some unexpected chocolate surprises. Check out their seasonal pretty heart box options filled with your choice of festive decorated chocolate sandwich cookies, colorfully wrapped truffles, chocolate-covered almond toffee, or chocolate-coated peanut butter crackers. 

With so many original Valentine sweet choices under $40 each, you're probably going to want to order multiple gifts and maybe even one for yours truly.

With all this delicious talk about chocolate, I think it's time for another MBE giveaway. Don't you agree?
