You know what they say. The secret to one's heart is through their stomach. And boy do we have that secret sauce when it comes to winning your sweetheart over--14 secrets, to be exact. Chocolate Covered Wagon is where it's at.

But first, speaking of winning, make sure you see the end of this post for details on how you can win a loaded-with-love candy basket valued at $75 from Chocolate Covered Wagon!

Now, let's take a look at 14 ways to show your Valentine they're divine.

1. Caramel Apples
Believe it or not, I'm eating one of these as I type this post, and I assure you it will win that special someone over with ease. 

2. Caramel
Want your caramel without the apple, try one of the sweet treats Chocolate Covered Wagon is known for--the handmade caramel. 

3. Chocolate Pops
Here's an idea that doesn't suck--chocolate on a stick. 

4. Popcorn
The candied variety, of course! 

Flavors include caramel, toffee and white.

5. Spokes
Also known as chocolate-dipped pretzels 

6. Taffy
Show your love you're stuck on them with freshly-pulled taffy.

7. Toffee
Get a little saucy with toffee. 

8. Truffles
Do the truffle shuffle. 

9. Chocolate Covered Raspberries
These bitty berries pack a big punch! 

10. Bagged Brilliance
Want quick cuties for your friends, coworkers, neighbors, classmates... anyone, really? These delights are already bagged and bowed and ready to go. 

11. Dipped Twinkies
Yes, you read that correctly. America's favorited sponge cake is now chocolate-covered. Kids will crush on this Twinkie the Kid!

12. Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Is there anything more romantic?

13. Chocolate Hearts
Forget a heart-shaped box of chocolates and go for the heart chocolate. These are about the size of a pancake and oh, so pretty! 

14. Gift Basket
Can't decide on just one delight? Get them all! Create a custom gift basket. Select your favorite sweet treats, and let your friends at Chocolate Covered Wagon gift wrap them for you.
