Video: Essential Chocolate Desserts Gears Up for Valentine's Day

The Culver City shop is busy preparing Belgian chocolate boxes, red velvet ding dongs and moon pies with heart decorations ahead of the Feb. 14 holiday.

Melissa Sanders, who owns Essential Chocolate Desserts in Culver City is busy putting together rich, Belgian chocolates into bright red heart-shaped candy boxes in time for Valentine's Day.

Along with the melt-in-your-mouth morsels, Sanders expects they'll sell out quickly of another two of their favorite items: red velvet ding dongs -made in heart shapes specially for the holiday - and thick, chocolate-coated moon pies hand-decorated with little hearts.

People will drive from as far away as Orange County, Sanders said, just to pick up their favorite chocolates, cakes and cookies ahead of the holiday.
