Say beer my valentine with boozy chocolates!
Love is in the air and just in time for Valentine's Day, when many of us give or receive the traditional gift of chocolate. But did you know that chocolate truly loves beer? It’s no wonder. Kissing cousins and the perfect pair, the two have much in common, including the delicate balance of sweet and bitter flavors. Pairing them really brings out the best in both. And isn't that what romance is all about? We’re showing our love with this collection of chocolate sweets to share and enjoy with your sweetie. What a decadently delicious way to pair chocolate and beer — no glasses needed.
