Chocolate Covered Treats Are Delicious Every Day But Never So Much As On Valentine’s Day
One of my favorite Valentine’s Day gifts from my husband are chocolate covered strawberries! Sometimes, they’re served with a side of bubbly champagne, sometimes a cup of hot coffee. Either way, they’re always a sweet treat.
And, how about some chocolate covered espresso beans for the coffee lover? Chocolate covered pretzels? There’s a plethora of chocolate covered treats that are just the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. I’m about to show you the best of the best.
If your senior friend is partial to cookies, check out my accompanying article: Valentine’s Day Cookies (the Oreos are my favorite).
Note: Please make sure to check with your elderly loved one’s dietary restrictions before gifting any food items.

My suggestion is to double check with your loved one’s physician before doling out a few chocolate covered espresso beans – they’re full of caffeine!

Chocolate Covered Cherries
My Bubbie (Yiddish for Grandmother) adored her chocolate covered cherries. I remember her carefully doling them out to us grandchildren during visits to St. Joe, MO. Everyone loved the cherries. They were an even sweeter gift for us as we knew how much Bubbie cherished them herself.
