Cocoa Puro Kaka'wa Cocoa Beans

The world's finest fresh roasted cocoa beans are covered with layers of dark, white, and milk chocolate, then rolled in velvety cocoa. These Austin-made confections have won so many awards (including being named a Top 100 favorite in Saveur magazine) that there literally isn't room here to list them all! Available online and at the Saturday morning Downtown Sustainable Food Center Farmers' Market, Saturday, 9am-1pm ($6, $12, $24).

Miles of Chocolate

Austin's own Miles of Chocolate has introduced a gluten-free version of its insanely decadent chocolate confection. Available exclusively at Whole Foods Market's Candy Island ($15/pound).

Delysia Chocolatier

These stunning collections of screenprinted chocolate truffles are a feast for the eyes as well as the appetite. The Valentine's Collection ($20) and the Wine Collection ($27) are both gluten-free and available all Breed & Co. locations, as well as Antonelli's Cheese Shop. Online shoppers can access even more variety, as 90% of Delysia's products are gluten-free.

Gift Card for Tèo Espresso, Gelato & Bella Vita

Tèo makes some of the best gelato around, but more importantly, Tèo is hyperaware of concerns with celiac disease. The gluten-free gelatos always have a dedicated scoop, and the staff always knows which gelatos are worry-free.

Cherry Heart Art Candy by Hammond's

Packaged in shiny-red lips-shaped boxes, this gluten-free version of the classic confection (the little hearts with the corny sayings) is also available at Whole Foods Market's Candy Island ($7.99).

Confituras Gift Box

After winning a Good Food Award last month in San Francisco, Stephanie McClenny probably doesn't even want any more press! But all of my gluten-free experts expressed a Valentine's wish for a gift box of Confituras preserves. Available online or at the SFC Downtown Farmers' Market, Saturday 9am-1pm ($10-35).

Edis' Chocolates

Local chocolatier Edis Rezende's award-winning handmade truffles are always gluten-free. Available directly from Rezende at the Barton Creek Farmers Market, Saturday, 9am-1pm ($10/half-dozen, $20/dozen).

Peoples Rx's Chocolate-Covered Organic Strawberries

Chocolate-covered strawberries are ubiquitous this time of year, but Peoples Rx has always gone the extra mile to offer gluten-free Calle­baut dark chocolate and organic strawberries ($10/half-dozen, $18/dozen).
