Happy Day #5 of Chocolate and Chili Theme Week, and a very Happy Valentines Day to all!

Valentines Day marks a big hearts and flowers (and chocolate) holiday in the U.S. May you enjoy this day and all that it brings. Every day is a great day to share chocolate with the loved ones in your life, but that's especially true on this day.

Today's featured chocolate was "The Make Out Bar," a 70% Cacao spicy, dark bar from The Xocolate Bar (Berkeley, CA). However, I found this bar in another Bay Area shop packed with goodness: SweetE Organic (Mill Valley, CA).

Although The Make Out Bar did have a hint of chili in it, most of the heat came from a mix of what the maker called "aphrodesiac spices" rather than hot pepper.*

The spice mix included: vanilla, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, maca and chile.

This Xocolate bar had an uplifting spice aroma and flavor—similar to that from a hot chai tea on a cold, rainy day, a smooth, spicy warmth.

Made with organic cacao, this bar was a great choice for Valentines Day.

*If you like spicy chocolate, The Xocolate Bar also makes a Cinnamon Chile chocolate bar and several confections with cardamom and other spices.
