Among the many Valentine's Day specials at the Chocolate Bar on Alabama is this giant chocolate pizza topped with cinnamon hearts, nuts and sparkling white icing and adorned with chocolate cupids and twin chocolate hearts. The chocolate pizza comes in an actual pizza delivery box and sells for a mere $30.
I also like the gift box assortment of chocolate-covered Oreo cookies. Some are dipped in white chocolate, some in dark chocolate, and all of them are decorated with hearts and Valentine's Day messages. A wrapped and ribboned box of six is half the price of a chocolate pizza at $15.
And if you have a whole lot of Valentines to take care of, you'll appreciate the huge assortment of truffles, chocolate bars and the big honking chocolate-covered strawberries.
Don't forget to get yourself a scoop of chocolate orange peel ice cream on the way out.
