Think outside the box of chocolates.

We love a good heart-shaped box of chocolates from the grocery store—but if you're looking locally for a last-minute Valentine's Day treat that feels a little more special, our hometown Willy Wonkas have you covered. Here are some of the best sweets in town, available for last-minute pickup (though you may want to call ahead to be sure your order will be fulfilled in time for the big day).

These products are available on the Shops at Seattle Met, the city's first online marketplace bringing the best local businesses together in one place

How deep is your love? Deep, dark Columbian chocolate and a splash of raspberry intertwine with smooth milk chocolate in Spinnaker's Valentine's Day bar. This version has cow's milk, but if dairy isn't your thing, Spinnaker stocks oat milk bars and milk-free dark chocolate bars, too.

Step aside, s'mores: They've got the caramel. They've got the crunch. They're wrapped in a layer of craft dark chocolate. And they're quickly disappearing from gift boxes and candy trays. (You can still order them for pickup at Island Treats' Mercer Island location, though.)

These tasty Terra Bella truffles are made from cookie dough dipped in chocolate and topped with chocolate chips. If wrecking your New Year's resolutions for them is wrong, we don't want to be right.

First, there's a thin layer of dark chocolate. Then, a light and fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth marshmallow, with a dollop of caramel in sweet pursuit. Then there's another and another. We recommend ordering a few packs.

Who can resist peanut butter, white chocolate ganache, butterscotch, pretzels, peanuts, and rice krispies, dipped in chocolate and topped with a sprinkle of pretzel salt? No one, that's who.

Chocolate isn't the only traditional candy worth gifting this Valentine's Day: If you grew up in a Swedish household, you know that Scandi sweets are as old-fashioned as it gets. This blue raspberry–flavored delight is handmade in Gränna, Sweden.

With multiple options rotating monthly, Seattle's Island Treats offers seasonal mallow flavors like dried Washington cherries, warm autumn spices, peppermint, and more. All are dipped in chocolate and available in gift-ready bags of 10.

Spinnaker combines crunchy nibs, fruity Belize cacao, and Jacobsen finishing salt in this triple-threat dark chocolate bar—plus, for every purchase, Spinnaker gives back to the worthy cause of cleaning up our oceans.

Island Treats offers gummies of all sorts, from classic bears covered in chocolate to a full-on gift box packed with a pound of rainbow candy. But nothing says Valentine's Day like sweet-and-spicy, chocolate-covered cinnamon bears.

Belize cacao's signature fruity taste breaks up dark, craft chocolate overtones—then, you're hit with the 100-proof bourbon that gives this bar its name. But the booze isn't overpowering: Per Spinnaker, the flavor "starts off slow and builds very nicely." Sounds a lot like love.
