From Forrest Gump to Willy Wonka, the cinematic universe is rife with characters who deploy chocolate as a metaphor for chance and possibility. We have to admit that there’s something alluring about a mystery assortment of truffles and bonbons filled with everything from the standard wave of caramel to a spicy burst of Tabasco sauce. The chocolate box’s myriad of decadent delights makes the nearly-universally-loved treat somehow even more enticing, especially with all of that love-day cheer floating in the air.
We dug through pages upon pages of sugary gift boxes to unearth the most innovative twists on the beloved cacao bean that are sure to impress the chocolate fans in your life. Of course, we also sprinkled in a few of the classics from Ferrero Rocher and Godiva because we can't deny the comfort in actually knowing exactly what you're going to get (sorry, Forrest). Take a peep ahead at all the chocolate-y gift assortments that are almost too sweet to eat.
