I made this and thought it was a great pattern! However, I noticed there was not an oval chocolate so I wrote a pattern for one. You can get the pattern from my blog: http://alittlejoyeveryday.blogspot.com/2013/06/pinished-projects-chocolate-valentines.html

Could you upload a video or instructions for a beginner? I would appreciate it!

awesome

Greetings all. I made 6 sets of chocolates & heart boxes for friends and family. All were amazed at how real the chocolates looked. Instead of using the crochet box pattern, which I was not fond of upon completion, I fabric covered papper mache heart boxes and embellished the tops with a crocheted rose Exceptional. Thank you for the pattern. leo02 6800394

What a wonderful project! I just finished 3 candies that were fast, fun and easy to make! They turned out so rich and fancy! My pug, Emmitt is very impressed and excited about his Valentine's Treats with extra fiber. :) http://pugnotes.blogspot.com/2011/02/emmitts-sweet-sunday.html

No, problem here with seeing the pattern for the Chocolate box. It is right after the "abbreviations"

not sure what the problem is but the pattern for the box is CLEARLY before the chocolates.
