Just a spoonful of sugar
Brown sugar hearts from Cox and Cox, as seen on Greedy Girl
These sugar cubes are insanely adorable. They're made of brown sugar (obviously) and have a small cut-out section so that they fit perfectly on the rim of a cup. I'd love to perch one of these on a hot mug of chai latte, swirled with a foam heart, and bring it to B with breakfast in bed on Valentine's Day. Too bad that'll never happen, because A) I can never seem to wake up early enough to surprise him and B) I don't know how to make fancy swirly foam hearts like this:

Did you know there are entire sites dedicate to latte foam art? Huh.
Anyway, swirly foam art or no, I think these brown sugar hearts would be perfect for V-day, or for any occasion where you want to fancy up a cup. After-dinner drinks at a dinner party? Adorable. Adorning mugs of tea at a baby shower? Perfect. And if you're the really ambitious type, you could build some sort of intricate dessert made from chocolate and place this sugar heart on it as the crowning glory. But that's probably as likely as me waking up early to make breakfast in bed...
