This Valentine’s Day, I got a chocolate heart from Compartes Chocolatier, an organic chocolate shop from Los Angeles.   Compartes’ chocolatier, Jonathan Grahm, is the youngest chocolatier in the United States and has created chocolates for the Academy Awards and Golden Globes.

The heart I got is a red-velvet box that I’m going to keep.

It’s filled with truffles like hazelnut nougat, raspberry rose, caramel, Meyer lemon lavender, crystal salt, pear cheese, blackberry, marzipan and fleur de sel caramel.

The chocolates have an outer chocolate shell.  Inside is the smooth truffle or gooey caramel.  My favorite flavor was raspberry rose with a subtle hint of each.  I also like blackberry, fleur de sel and crystal salt, but they are all good.
