Love Letter Series: Yes To Chocolate!

Dear Peanut Butter Bots,

You're small, but powerful. You are a ménage à trois of desire: All-natural creamy peanut butter inside a rich chocolate shell covered in crisped rice crunch. I thought I knew good chocolate. Scratch that, I do know good chocolate. And when I stumbled upon you, I knew I'd met my match. You complete me.

Love, 
Your devoted fan,
Deenie

Ever since I was a little girl, my dad always gave me a box of chocolates for Valentine's Day. A big, red, bow-laden box filled with every imaginable variety of saccharin-filled chocolate. As I grew up, boyfriends started treating me to the chocolate confections. One year I was gifted a box of Neuhaus chocolates so delectable I rationed them throughout the weekend to prolong my supply.

So if you ask me, I'll tell you that gifting chocolates on Valentine's Day is Grade-A gift (though I'm sure not all women will agree). Thing is, they don't have to come from Russell Stover or a heart-shaped box. My latest chocolate obsession is Droga Chocolates Peanut Butter Bots. 

From February 1–14, I'll be posting love letters to the things I've been obsessing over lately. From sweets to slip-ons, these are the showstoppers that are quickening my pulse this winter.
