If you really want to disappoint your wife or girlfriend this Valentine's Day, get her a Russell Stover box or, better yet, an even cheaper generic variety pack. Then sit back and watch as she eats and exclaims, "Ooh, this one tastes like wax. Hmm, this one must be toothpaste-flavored. And this one tastes like a Raisinet that's been stuck to the underside of a school desk." But if you want her to actually enjoy the chocolates, put in a little effort by making truffles, fondue or other chocolate treats. Learn to temper chocolate, make decorations and more 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Barry Callebaut Chocolate Academy at Central Market, 5750 E. Lovers Lane. Cost is $65 per person.
