Creative Ways to do Chocolate in Durham

While giving a box of chocolates is a traditional Valentine’s Day gift, we thought it was worth thinking outside the box. There are so many more options for treating your sweetheart than the same old boring heart-shaped box of chocolate.

Fear not, Durham’s food scene has got you covered – after all, it is The Tastiest Town in the South. Here is a slide show of great, and sometimes unique, chocolate options from Cocoa Cinnamon, Rose’s Meats Market and Sweet Shop, Sam’s Quik Shop, Scratch, The Chocolate Shop, and The Parlour.

The slideshow features items available now and through Valentine’s Day.
