Valentine’s Day Candy Heart Box of Chocolates


I remember well the huge boxes of chocolate candy that my grandfather gave to my grandmother for Valentine’s Day every year.

I always dreamed I would find and marry someone who would give me those heart-shaped boxes of chocolates for Valentine’s Day.

It was just so very romantic!

Plus, being able to keep the box as a memento is like getting two gifts in one.  Actually, the box lids make very pretty crafts too.

Valentine’s Day Chocolate

I think all children love chocolate and I will readily admit, I have not outgrown my love of chocolate candy.  Fortunately for me, my husband indulges my chocolate addition, as well as my romantic desires by giving me a heart-shaped box of chocolates each year for Valentine’s Day.

They aren’t always big boxes of chocolate, and they certainly don’t have to be huge. The heart-shaped boxes of chocolate he brings home show his love for me by showing me that he knows what I want and giving me my idea of the perfect romantic Valentine’s Day gift.

Sometimes I even share my chocolates with him!

Refill the Heart-Shaped Boxes with Candy

The initial chocolate always seems to be gone long before I have had my fill of candy.  Because I prefer to keep the heart-shaped box around longer too, I refill my heart box of chocolates with fresh candy.  To be honest, that isn’t a bad idea to do even from year to year if you are on a limited budget.  It is a lot less expensive to buy a plain box of candy.  Plus, you most often get twice as candy in those plain boxes.  Which means you can refill your heart box several times.
