Would you spend $550 on chocolate?

Maybe you can’t buy love, but you sure can buy chocolates. And with these decadent truffles, there are rich scents of hope in the air for your love life. Use that extra cash flow to surprise your lover on Valentine’s Day with one of these lavish chocolate boxes, or, you could just pay off your student loans.

La Madeline au Truffe by House of Knipschildt

For $250, get the most expensive truffle in the world. That’s right — it’s just one truffle. The 70 percent Valrhona dark chocolate, heavy cream, sugar, truffle oil, and vanilla create the base for the rich ganache in this expensive truffle.

Champagne Truffles by the Chocolate

The boutique box of these chocolate truffles will run you around $270, but the truffles all use real Champagne, pure 24-carat gold, and are wrapped with Swarovski crystals, so it seems fair.  

To'ak Dark Chocolate

Completely organic and fair trade, these chocolates from Ecuador also cost $270 a box. With carefully grown cocoa beans, this dark chocolate is 80.5 percent cocoa and definitely worth that extra cash.

DeLafée Gold Chocolate Box with Collectible Gold Coin

This Swiss chocolate is presented in a 24-karat gold chocolate box with an antique Swiss gold coin, retailing at $304. For eight chocolates, that’s roughly $38 a truffle, so not too bad when you think about it.  

Le Livre by Debauve & Gallais

This 35-truffle chocolate box comes with a book on the history of the chocolates, but we’re still not sure this justifies the $550 you’d spend on it. Those better be the best chocolates in the world for that price tag.
