With the day of love not far away, it’s the perfect time to consider all of the ways that you can share sweet indulgences with your nearest and dearest. This Valentine’s Day, try some new, delicious ways to give the gift of decadent chocolate.

Whether you make a chocolate treat from scratch or simply make a gift basket filled with an indulgence, such as PlumSweets Dark Chocolate or Greek Yogurt Coated Prunes, you don’t have to skimp on good health – especially as dark chocolate has risen in popularity and become a Valentine’s Day favorite. These gift-worthy recipes from Sunsweet feature craveable chocolate to share with those you love most.

The secret ingredient: PlumSweets. Sunsweet’s signature diced prunes are nestled inside a layer of rich dark chocolate or creamy Greek yogurt.
