Chocolates by M. Josephs
P.O. Box 323, Higley. (480) 988-9150 or www.chocolatesbymj.com
This Gilbert chocolatier uses Belgian and French chocolate to create espresso/Kahlua, wild cherry-brandy, orange, mint, lemon and merlot truffles, as well as pecan, whiskey and salt caramels. But if you want to bring out the big guns for V-Day, consider a solid chocolate flower ($15 each) or high-heeled shoe ($45). Flowers can be ordered to mimic roses, irises, daffodils or other varieties. Shoes, which measure up to about a size 5 real shoe, come in milk or dark chocolate and can be custom decorated. Orders can be delivered, picked up or shipped.
