Unforgettable Valentine Chocolates
Chocolate won't last forever, but memories do.
Venture away from cliche chocolate hearts this Valentine's. Show your affection with homemade "Sokkuri" sweets (そっくり; sweets that "look like" other things) instead. You can create flower-shaped chocolates, or something that holds meaning in your relationship, such as a picture frame with your own photograph. As the video below shows, you'll definitely need lots of patience, but the payoff is worth it, and the process a fun way for couples to spend time together. :) For a more thorough breakdown of the process, check out the details here.Suggestions for you
