Chocolate sweets, beyond the box

One of the most delectable ways to say “I love you” is with a gift of chocolate. But if a box of bonbons doesn’t feel special enough, here are some swankier options.

Dessert extravaganza  Treat your special someone to the Langham Boston’s Saturday afternoon Chocolate Bar offering 120-plus milk, white, and dark chocolate desserts. In addition to the hotel’s chocolate croissant bread pudding, the buffet features chocolate cakes, tortes, truffles, cotton candy, crepes, and seasonal sweets, like passion fruit chocolate mousse. The menu also includes cocktails such as the White Coco made with vanilla vodka, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, white crème de cacao, and cream. Saturdays through June 11 a.m.-3 p.m., adult $40 (or $50 with two cocktails), children ages 5-12 $28, under 4 free. Café Fleuri, 250 Franklin
