Chocolate-dipped turtles – It’s Dot for ‘I Love You’

Romance — and chocolate cravings— are in the air, especially on Morrissey Boulevard.

Phillips Candy House, Boston’s oldest and most popular chocolatier, is stocked up with Valentine’s Day offerings featuring their best-selling signature turtles, long-stemmed chocolate roses, chocolate covered strawberries and cherries, and everyone’s favorite, Valentine’s Day candy.

The sweets come in all shapes and sizes, but there’s nothing like saying ‘I love you’ with a large, hand-crafted milk chocolate turtle heart topped with red and white sprinkles for $35.95.

The fresh, hand-crafted chocolate treats range in price, so be prepared to spend anywhere between $15 and $52. If you’re looking for something on a smaller scale, they’ve got your budget covered with chocolate hearts or Valentine’s Day candy for a small price anywhere between $2 and $12.

Phillips Candy House is located at 818 Morrissey Blvd., Dorchester. They’re open from 8:30 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 9:30 a.m. -6 p.m. on Sunday.
