If you’re looking for chocolate for a romance, you can find some excellent chocolates at Malley’s.

By 1949, Mike Malley opened a second Malley’s ice cream parlor and chocolate shop on Victoria and Madison in Lakewood. If you’re looking for a local place, Malley’s is the place to buy go. Ms. Spies, an English Teacher at Lakewood High School, says her favorite are “Chocolate covered strawberries or chocolate covered pretzels from Malley’s all the way.” 

If you aren’t in the mood for chocolate and want more pastries such as macaroons, cupcakes and cookies, go to KB Confections. KB Confections is run by an award-winning baker Karen Bosworth, who is a local in Lakewood with her husband Dan and three children. KB Confections Valentine’s Day menu is live right now, and it consists of macaroons, cupcakes, cakes, and cookie cakes, all in a variety of pink.. So if you’re looking for sweets for someone for Valentine’s Day but they don’t want chocolate, check out KB Confections.

Those looking to buy high-end chocolates can find them at Sweet Designs, located on Detroit Avenue. Sweet Designs, established in 1995, creates gourmet chocolate confections made by hand and recently has been voted the “Best Chocolatier in Northeast Ohio”.  Chef Robert McGorray from the Ranger Cafe recommended Sweet Designs, saying “You’re paying for the quality and it is 100% worth it.” Some special Valentine’s Day offers include their Chokolatine Hand-Painted Gourmet Chocolates and more. 

Edible Arrangements is another great spot for Valentine’s Day chocolates for their creative and beautiful way of making food into artwork.
