Our Hearts Belong to Chocolate
February is the time to show our love with flowers, chocolate and candy. But instead of just picking up a box of chocolates, show your sweetie you care with some homemade treats. We've got lots of chocolate at our disposal here at The Chopping Block, so our chefs have created these recipes guaranteed to spark a flame.

Another of our favorite sweet recipes is our famous Flourless Chocolate Cake. Stop by our stores the week of Valentine's Day and we'll give you a copy.

While you're there, shop our bakeware, including Emile Henry, which will be 20% off in February. It's the perfect opportunity to pick up that cookie sheet, muffin tin, cake pan or pie dish that you need to bake with love.

If you still need plans for a special date night, all Saturday night classes are sold out, but we have plenty of spots available on Friday so celebrate a day early! Register now to save your spots.

For even more insanely decadent chocolate masterpieces like Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Marshmallow Filling, don't miss our Death by Chocolate class on Valentine's Day morning.
