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.


In Baton Rouge, La., the day before Valentine's Day, Feb. 13, is by far Toni Hayes' busiest of the year.
