Chocolate is one of the most popular gifts for Valentine’s Day. Why not take this traditional gift one step further, and kick your romantic getaway off by exploring a trail or chocolate so decadent you’ll never want to leave New Mexico? Throughout New Mexico, you’ll find a range of chocolatiers; those who celebrate chocolate’s Mesoamerican roots, showcase fine European chocolates, and even those who feature the famous New Mexico chiles. In Albuquerque, we recommend trying the truffles, bars, and other treats at the Chocolate Cartel, or the unique chocolates at Joliesse Chocolates. In Santa Fe, try the delectable treats at CoCopelli, or sip on a little history at Kakawa Chocolate House, where the focus is on historic drinking chocolates dating between 1000 BC to the mid 1900′s AD.
