'Be My Valentine' Gift Box

Hi Friends in Korea!

With the first month of 2012 already coming to a close, that means that Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Unfortunately, most valentine sweets and cakes here are laced with dairy milk, butter and eggs, so us vegans in Korea might feel a little left out when everyone else around us gets boxes of chocolates from secret admirers.

To remedy this situation, I decided to get creative and put together a sexy, chocolatey gift box available for order on my bake shop site. If anyone is looking to express their love in the form of cruelty-free, handmade treats, this could be your answer. Even if you don't have a significant other, you can always get a box for your single gal pals, or even just for yourself~ Hey, sometimes we need to say 'I love you' to ourselves too. :)

Each gift box will include:

  • 1 small vanilla-chocolate marble cake
  • 4 vegan hazelnut truffles
  • 4 raspberry choco pinwheel cookies
  • 4 black forest cookies
  • 6 snappy chocolate-dipped hearts

Marble cake; the perfect metaphor for two becoming one. :)

Soft, rich chocolate cookies with chewy, tart, dried cherries.

I'm especially excited about these melt-in-your-mouth hazelnut truffles, which are essentially a vegan (and gluten-free!) version of ferrero rochers. You can also order these separately by the dozen, however, please note that these will only be available during this Valentine's season.

Raspberry-flavored chocolate pinwheel cookies with chewy pieces of cranberry throughout.

A cookie-version of the iconic Valentine's conversation sweets. These are crunchy chocolate hearts, imprinted with a love message and dipped in more chocolate.

Please submit and complete your gift box order by the end of Tuesday, Feb 7 (Extended to Thursday, Feb 9). Packages will begin shipping on Feb 9. Feel free to indicate whether you would prefer to receive your package before or after the weekend and I will try to accommodate your request. All items will be wrapped in cello bags for freshness, carefully packaged in a brown gift box, and then tied up in red ribbon. Personalized gift messages can also be included at no extra charge.
