    With Valentine’s Day approaching and your sweet tooth being tempted from every angle (get out of here, Walgreen’s candy section!) you have to be selective about the treats you actually indulge in. That's why we made it our personal mission to scour the city for the most delicious, sinister, mouth watering, have-you-screaming-for-mercy chocolate desserts that will make any calories you rack up oh-so worth it.

    Our findings? Let’s just say this: Our local pastry chefs have done us proud. Featuring nods to your favorite sweet and salty movie snack, upgraded versions of popular candy bars, and one of the most respected chocolate soufflés in the city, this list is nothing if not comprehensive.
