Raaka
Unroasted, ethically-sourced chocolate bar with no added sugar. Raaka

Not only does Raaka make some amazing-tasting chocolate bars, but they do so ethically and responsibly. They make their chocolate product from scratch in New York from ethically sourced, single-origin, certified organic and unroasted cacao. If you've never tried unroasted cacao, you're in for a treat. It is more fruity and less bitter than other dark chocolate.

This strawberry and coconut flavor is perfect for Valentine's Day and comes in a three-pack. Best of all, there is no added sugar and just 2 grams of natural sugar per serving, so it's great for people with diabetes.

Oodaalolly Dark Chocolate with Don Papa Rum—$6.00

Small batches of rum-soaked chocolate from the Philippines. Oodaalolly

How does Davao grown trinitario cacao soaked in Don Papa rum sound? The rum itself gets aged for seven years in the foothills of Mount Kanlaon in the Philippines. The other half of the equation for this sweet treat is small-batch, single-origin chocolate that's rich and tasty. Natural Philippine coconut sugar is used to produce the smooth chocolate that also includes hints of caramel and a toasted vanilla finish. This $6 indulgence comes in a cocktail sized bar, which is 0.6 oz or 18 g. You better act quickly, though, as it is limited availability.

Mayana Chocolate Kitchen Sink Bar—$9.50

This Kitchen Sink Bar is less about the presentation and more about the end result. If your significant other isn't concerned about meticulous aesthetics, then this bar will provide a whirlwind of flavors perfect as an after-dinner dessert.

It gets its name from its ingredients, all of which you might find lying around on the kitchen counter. Under the 66% dark chocolate is peanut butter, pretzels, crisped rice and milk chocolate accompanied by fleur de sel caramel. If you've had a Reese Take 5 candy bar, this will taste similar, just more grown-up and mature.

Doughp Edible Cookie Dough—$39.00

What could be better than four 5oz cups of edible cookie dough? This variety pack comes in classic chocolate chip, Rainbow Sprinkle, Cookies and Cream and Chocolate S'mores, so you'll have your choice of chocolate. Doughp cookie dough can be eaten raw because it contains no eggs, but it can also be baked to serve some piping hot cookies. For what it's worth, I ended up eating the dough before I could bake any cookies — the raw dough is good.

An additional feel-good fact about Doughp is that the company donates a portion of every sale to the She Recovers Foundation — a non-profit charity with a mission to connect, support and empower women in recovery.
