What do you like to do with your loved ones for Valentines Day? Is there a certain restaurant you always go to with your significant other? Do you have a daily ritual like taking the day off and spending it just the two of you? Does your lady friend expect some flowers or does your man friend appreciate some gadgets? Valentines Day is a fun day to remind those ones in your life that you love them (there are 364 other days to do this as well but this is the holiday of the year so it’s fun to show your love!). And there are so many ways to do that – and one tradition that people particularly like to indulge in would be the sweet side of the holiday, the chocolate side. This might be one of the sweetest filled holidays (that and one of the biggest floral holidays of the year) and I am a big fan of all the amazing chocolate you can get around Denver. I have compiled a list of some of the best chocolate shops below so if you still need to grab something sugary for your loved one check one of these amazing places out!

Chocolate Crisis Center – 3370 Walnut St
Hopefully no one has to take a trip to the doctor or the ER this Valentines Day but if you have a chocolate emergency you might want to get that checked at the Chocolate Crisis Center in LoHi.
