It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and you know what that means: It's time to buy some chocolates! One of the best local places to get your sweets fix is Veruca Chocolates. Inspired by the ever-famous line “I want it now!” from Veruca Salt in Willy Wonka, Veruca Chocolates aims to provide instant, sweet gratification with their tasty treats available on Halstead Street. This boutique chocolatier crafts chocolates almost too beautiful to eat, with tons of gorgeous gifting options.
They have sparkly champagne truffles, a Chicago-inspired box of chocolates imprinted with the city’s most iconic landmarks, tasty hot chocolate bombs perfect for warming up during our chilly Chicago winters, and so much more. If you’re aiming to be a little more experiential with your gifting, go for the gift certificate for a chocolate making class for two to make some memories and chocolate! Check out their website and order, or pop in the store.
