Chocolate to the Rescue!

A Gift For All Reasons


Valentine's Day is one of those awkward holidays that is a gift-giving minefield. It can be difficult to choose a present that strikes balance and sends the right message. Many situations such as a New Relationship,  Friendship or Hard-to-Buy-For Loved One make for stressful shopping. Fear not, Baskets by Bonnie can save the day!

A Sweet Gift that includes chocolate can help boost endorphins and earn relationship points. Our Chocolate Lovers basket pictured above is one of our popular baskets.


Cup of Love

Nothing warms the heart on a cold polar vortex day like a cup of Hot Chocolate topped with oodles of tiny marshmallows and a side of cookies or biscuits. Butler's Hot Chocolate Drink Chocolates help make a gourmet cup of creamy rich cocoa. The box of 10 cup-shaped portions is included in our Chocolate Lover's Basket. It can also be incorporated in a custom-made gift.

An easy to follow recipe is printed on the back of the box. We cheated with the cup pictured above and used the microwave. Our unofficial method: Set the microwave on medium and heat a cup of milk with a chocolate cup for 3 minutes or so, stirring every 30 seconds. We topped with mini-marshmallows and served with a side of  Bahlsen Leibniz Butter Biscuits.
