Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and if the one you love loves chocolate, there is a very special place where you can get something to sweep your Valentine off their feet.
The Chocolate Bar is a chocolate lover's heaven. From the minute you walk into the store, the sweet smell of chocolate surrounds you.
Houston food blogger Maya Fasthoff talked to co-owner Eric Shamban about some of the unique items you can get.
One is the Chocolate Pizza. It's made by spreading melted chocolate into a pizza tin, then covering it with nuts, cherries and candied ginger, and then topped off with drizzled white chocolate that represents mozzarella topping.
The whole thing is then frozen and packaged in a pizza box.
If you are the creative type, you can make your own chocolate bar. Melted chocolate is poured into a candy bar mold and then you can add in a bunch of ingredients to make your own unique bar.
Of course, there are a lot of standards as well, including chocolate cakes and chocolate-covered strawberries.
The Chocolate Bar is located at 2521 University Blvd in Rice Village (a second store is located on Alabama near River Oaks).
