Christopher Elbow celebrates Valentine’s Day

Last week, Fat City reported that Food & Wine Magazine had named Elbow Chocolates’ No. 6 Dark Rocks the best chocolate in

the whole wide great big United States.

Christopher Elbow seemed honored, but his eyes didn’t really light up until we started talking about the limited-edition Valentine’s Day boxes that he created specially with his wife Jennifer.

Elbow said he started working on the box in October and that each of the 17 flavors took a week — or weeks — to perfect. “They’re not really an aphrodisiac, but I tried to choose romantic flavors. There’s passion fruit champagne, red wine… we just finished them and put them on the counter.”

When Elbow makes a chocolate it’s not a normal process.
