Dallas AP – Florists and chocolate-makers are working around the clock in the run-up to Valentine’s Day.
In Dallas, chocolatier Andrea Pedraza, who loves designer high heels, molded her pedestrian passion into chocolate form. Her most well-known creations are chocolate pumps done in the style of Christian Louboutin shoes.
Prices for the pumps range from $30 to $55, but more if you fill the heel with more chocolates.
Pedraza says men buy the chocolate pumps the most, so she keeps extras on hand for last-minute shoppers.
This morning, we were featured on WFAA: Instant Live 8 and they showed off our of our fantastic Valentine’s Day gifts. Of course, our famous Christian Louboutin inspired chocolate heel received the most attention. Thank you to Cynthia Izaguirre, Ron Corning, and Wyatt Goolsby for all the kind words and for visiting us early this morning. To read the full story and watch the video, please click here.
