Droga and Elsylee
When it comes to candy, Michelle Crochet, of Droga Confections, takes her mother’s custom rocky road recipe (she uses peanuts instead of walnuts) and makes it even sexier. Tuck in to these two-bite wonders and the chocolate (milk or dark, your call) yields to your teeth, the kiss of salt from freshly roasted peanuts awakens your taste buds, and the whole thing gives way to a center of impossibly fluffy handmade marshmallow. Another option for your honey are the "Put Your Money on Honey" salted caramels made with honey, not corn syrup, and dipped in bittersweet chocolate. So addictive are these treats, the company name is Droga (“drug” in Italian). Certainly, Crochet is our Valentine’s Day heroin. Er, heroine.

You Can Be Such a Card
Out-of-the-ordinary sweets show your good taste. Pair them with a hipster card that's a little more fun than what you'd find at the corner store.
