“Valentine’s Day without chocolate is like a peanut butter sandwich without jelly. This occasion deserves the ultimate indulgence, and this boutique has all the right stuff. The draw for chocoholics here is the creole hash – a jumble of homemade marshmallow, milk chocolate and pecans.  It goes down particularly easy in the Big Easy.
