Valentine's Day Giveaway: Peanut Butter & Co. Chocolate Hearts


[Photographs: Robyn Lee]

20100205-pbcohearts3.jpgWhen we found out our nut columnist Lee Zalben (aka The Peanut Butter Guy) was releasing some special Valentine's Day chocolates at his company Peanut Butter & Co. we immediately begged for a box. "You'll have them tomorrow," he said. Sure enough they came, and we haven't stopped nibbling on them since.

What's New On Serious Eats

The chocolate-peanut butter combo is a hard one to mess up but as opposed to Reese's (no offense, Reese's) these are actually filled with good peanut butter (the Peanut Butter & Co. kind). It's smooth and silky (can peanut butter be described as silky?) and thanks to the fine work of pastry chef Jean-Francois Bonnet, the heart shapes are made with a thin, bittersweet 72% cacao shell. They're taking online orders for the 16-piece box ($22) until supplies run out, but five lucky winners here will win a box to arrive before Valentine's Day. To enter, just tell us your favorite chocolate candy.

Contest will end and comments will close at 3 p.m. ET, Monday, February 8, 2010. One entry per community member. Winners are limited to residents of the continental U.S. Standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
