But what kind is the most popular among my friends for Valentine's Day?

Lots of books to giveaway on Wed 2-17, so be sure to enter the rafflecopter.


A special Valentine's Day Tip
No shoes, No shirts, Lots of "Service"
Plan an indoor picnic with nothing but finger foods and the rule that you can't feed yourself. Feeding each other is very intimate, so plan a menu that fits the rules. I have a Pinterest board to get you started. What will be your desert? Mine at Valentine's Day is chocolate covered strawberries. Don't forget the whipped cream!

Before you take a look at all our favorite candy, Jillian Stone has sent us the perfect way to unwrap a Hershey's Kiss

CHOCOLATE LOVERS
Avril Tremayne, chocolate hearts, but they have to be wrapped in red foil or it's not happening!

Cindy Charity....hmmmm......I'm going to have to go with chocolates from Lindt (very yummy!)

E.E. Burke, my absolute favorite treat? Let me spell it out:
D-A-R-K  C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E

D'Ann Burrow, I'm a Dove chocolate fan.  The little milk chocolate hearts are my favorite, but I'm not overly picky.

Chocolate covered cashews...especially the ones from See's Candy! Mmmm!

Avril Tremayne said...

Ooh I love See's. Whenever I am in the USA I buy a stack to bring home to Australia.

Felicia Reevers said...

For the most part, I think Secret Admirers are creepy!

Angi Morgan said...

Totally agree.

Angi Morgan said...

I love cashews

Colleen C. said...

I love chocolates with some type of nut... peanuts, hazelnuts, almonds, etc...

Hannah said...

I'm a sucker for all things dark chocolate, but truffles are my Achilles

Nan Dixon said...

Wow I'm odd woman out not liking the chocolate!!!

Jen said...

I love chocolate covered strawberries the best. However, I love everything chocolate except white chocolate.

Nancy Holland said...

DH doesn't like chocolate, either. I don't understand it, but that's the way he is. Guess it leaves morefor me!

Billie Jackson said...

Milk chocolate covered caramel. I don't care who makes it!

Avril Tremayne said...

I love caramel - and especially salted caramel.

Avril Tremayne said...

I love white chocolate. I am not a huge fan of dark chocolate, unless it is wrapped around orange or ginger.

holdenj said...

For Valentine's candy, I like the dove chocolates.

Kylea Nitz said...

I agree. You could have a secret admirer that could be someone you don't know. If I had a secret admirer then I would rather it be someone I know.

Shari said...

Love anything chocolate, especially chocolate chip cookies

Tammy Yenalavitch said...

Sees Candy for us. I did soft centers since I recently had some oral surgery. I still want Sees - I usually get nuts and chews .

Avril Tremayne said...

I am a sucker for all cookies!

Avril Tremayne said...

I love Sees - just about all of it.

Avril Tremayne said...

Chocolate seems the all out winner.

Corinnia said...

Just plain chocolate is good for me, I'm not too picky when it comes to sweets. And although I don't have a valentine, my family did pretty well.

Helen said...

Hi All

Oh I do have a sweet tooth and Cadbury Roses are my favourites but I have been losing weight for the last 6 months so I haven't really had chocolate for a while craving it now LOL

Have Fun
Helen

chocolate covered almonds

Angi Morgan said...

I had one yesterday that was Sour Apple Pie --amazing nutty flavor but NO nuts.

Angi Morgan said...

I hope you take a peek at the How To Make Trouffles video !

Angi Morgan said...

I don't like too much chocolate. Prefer white any time.

Angi Morgan said...

I'm just the opposite. I love everything white.

Angi Morgan said...

I love caramel without the chocolate.

Angi Morgan said...

hahaha -- I need your address !

Angi Morgan said...

Classic is always good.

Angi Morgan said...

YAY for family !!

Angi Morgan said...

Helen, I have to admit that I splurged this weekend, but will be back on no sugar tomorrow.

Angi Morgan said...

Always a great choice.

regencygirl01 said...

like the conversation hearts, but over all anything with chocolate, pb, or caramel

Angi Morgan said...

We tried the conversation hearts this year...just not the same. sigh

Lena Diaz said...

I'm not crazy about chocolate myself. It has to be really good and have something else, like caramel. And like Angi, I LOVE white chocolate. But I'm actually more a fan of candy in general, like Whoppers, Reeses Pieces, and Whatchamacallit candy bars.

Naomi Stone said...

Chocolate-covered nuts and fruits are my favorites, and Godiva truffles for special occasions.

Robin Perini said...

What a great Valentine's Day blog, Angi! Turtles are still my favorite, but all the comments reminded me of other great choices. Have to bop to the store now. I'm hungry LOL!

Angi Morgan said...

Sounds YUMMY

Angi Morgan said...

Stay strong friend. Be choosy and don't buy all the discounted Valentine candy.

Joan Varner said...

Ghiradelli's dark chocolate squares with sea salt and caramel.

Avril Tremayne said...

Oh yes! Love all their chocolate squares.

Shari said...

Just teasing!

LynnB said...

Rocky Mountain Chocolates - milk chocolate salted caramels .. YUM!

Angi Morgan said...

Those do sound yummy.

Stephanie Grant said...

My favorite Valentin's Day candy has to be Ferrero Rocher!

Linda Romer said...

My favorite Valentine Candy is chocolate covered coconut ♡ yum!

Linda Moffitt said...

Chocolate is not my go to dessert My Favorite dessert is powdered sugar covered long john donuts

Linda Moffitt said...

I Lost my amazon follow button since they did some kind of update so I can't do any of the amazon follows or I would do all of them

Liette Bougie said...

I can't eat a lot of the retail Valentine's Day candies any more. In general, I love Enjoy Life's Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mega Chunks. My favorite homemade candies either involve melting that down to make thin pieces in shapes or some combination of coconut or caramel, or both, and that chocolate.

Jan Vanengen said...

Dark chocolate any way it comes :)

Ginny LaMere said...

I'm saying M & M's

ALL ABOUT OLD CARS said...

I like all chocolate but Reeses is my favorite.

Kim said...

Anything with chocolate and nuts. Or strawberry Twizzlers.
