Champagne and chocolates constitute the dynamic duo of no-brainers for Valentine's Day. Peterbrooke Chocolatier at

227 Aragon Ave. in Coral Gables has come up with a novel way to team

the two: A chocolate-dipped champagne bottle. Now through February 14,

customers can bring in their favorite bubbly -- or wine (and maybe beer

too, in case you've got a wild one on your hands) -- and have it

covered in food-grade wrap,  dipped in gourmet dark, milk or white

chocolate blends, and decorated (as in the photo). The cost is $18 per


Peterbrooke is likewise offering interactive classes

for  "chocolatiers that want to dip and decorate themselves!"  Kinky

fun, baby!  Oh no, sorry -- what they mean is that classes are for

those who want to dip and decorate the bottles themselves. Classes for

doing so will be held Wednesday, February 11 through Friday, February

13 at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., and on Saturday, February 14 at 2 p.m. The

cost is $25 per person, and students must bring their own bottle of

wine or champagne. Classes are limited to six students each, and

reservations are required. Call 305-446-3131.
