Though we love a heart-shaped box of candy as much as the next person, they are by no means the only way to spoil your special someone this upcoming Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking for chocolate specifically, you’re in luck! Hershey’s, M&M’s and Ferreo are just some of the beloved brand’s offering unique and fun Valentine's Day treats this year. From strawberry-studded bark to cake-flavored kisses, here are some of our favorite Cupid-approved finds to indulge in this holiday.


Bouquets full of long-stemmed red roses are fine and all, but this Valentine's Day we'd much rather get a bagful of these "blossom-topped" peanut butter cups instead. Each one is filled with Reese's signature sweet-and-salty peanut butter spread, but it's their bright pink tops that'll leave you and your S.O. googly eyed.


If you want to put together a romantic dinner for two this Valentine's Monday, but you're worried you won't have an adequate amount of time to make dinner and dessert from scratch, M&M's is here to lend a helping hand with their latest flavor. This festively-colored mix features both milk and dark chocolate candy rounds, each filled with a delectable cherry ganache filling that tastes just like a jumbo slice of traditional Black Forest Cake. Best part of all, you won't need to wash any extra dishes, since you and your sweetie can eat them right out of the bag!


Does bae only have eyes for dark chocolate? Then they'll melt for these limited-edition Hershey's Kisses! Each one is filled with an ooey gooey filling that perfectly resembles molten chocolate lava cake. Though you can — and should — eat them on their own, we also have a sneaking suspicion that they'd taste phenomenal in the center of these peanut butter blossom cookies from Food Network Kitchen.

$22.40 for 24 bars

Chocolate-covered strawberries are a beloved Valentine's Day treat, but buying them can be a little expensive, especially if you're getting them from a big-name chocolatier. KitKat's brand-new duos bar offers a tasty and affordable solution. Not only does it pair fruity strawberry-flavored creme with bold dark chocolate, but the bars can also fit easily inside an envelope, in case you want to jazz up a paper valentine or handwritten love letter.


If your significant other is the "milk" to your "cookies," these adorable heart-shaped candies are a must-buy. Each one is studded with bright pink cookie pieces and are individually wrapped, if you wanted to scatter them inside your partner's lunch box or gym bag on the morning of Valentine's Day.


Ghirardelli gives their fan-favorite chocolate bark the Valentine's Day treatment with this newest offering. Each mouthwatering square features overlapping layers of milk and white chocolate, plus bits of real strawberries to give you and yours a well-deserved moment of self-indulgence. Their bright pink wrappers are also super striking and make them the perfect filling for a heart-shaped candy bowl.

$21.90 for 2 bags

If you usually put together a goodie bag for the kiddos to enjoy every Valentine's Day, be sure to throw a handful of these heart-shaped Butterfingers inside. They're just as crispy and crunchy as the traditional bars, but smaller, so kids can enjoy them on the holiday and beyond.


If your sweetie's a fan of Reese's pumpkins and eggs, they'll fall even harder for these peanut butter-filled hearts. Each one features a vibrant outer coating made from pink creme, and can be eaten whole or used to make a variety of quick and easy desserts, like this No-Bake Chocolate-Peanut Butter Pie from Jeff Mauro or this over-the-top Cheesecake from Food Network Kitchen.


Busy parents know better than anyone just how quickly the days leading up to Valentine's Day can pass by. Thankfully this multipack from Kinder comes equipped with six (!!!) of the brand's iconic Joy Eggs, so one purchase is all they'll need to turn their kiddos V-Day into the best one yet. Each egg also features a heartfelt message scribbled across the front of it, so kids can gift any that remain to their friends as a sweet toy-filled surprise.

$48 for 3 boxes
Dylan's Candy Bar

If takeout has played a leading role in your relationship, these goodie-filled treat boxes from Dylan’s Candy Bar are a playful and delicious way to pay homage to it. The brand is offering three different varieties this year, including the "S'more Time Together" option pictured above, which is stuffed full of a yummy assortment of chocolate-covered marshmallows, French vanilla malt balls and milk chocolate-covered graham crackers. There's truly nothing better to munch on while watching your favorite rom-com with your soulmate at the end of the night.
