If we know one thing about our sweet tooth, it’s that it’s insatiable. Now, Sin City has a new way to satisfy those decadent and undeniable yearnings for chocolate: The Las Vegas Chocolate Shop inside Miracle Mile at Planet Hollywood.

Everything in moderation. And, no, we couldn't type that with a straight face. It's Vegas, after all.

This new shop, near Halo bar just across from the casino entrance at Planet Hollywood, features a Wonka-worthy selection of chocolate temptations, many created by local artisans.

Our glands just got all tingly.

Among the most talked-about goodies, according to our in-depth research (specifically, roaming around the store eavesdropping for 20 minutes), were the chocolate-covered strawberries and mint chocolate chip malted milk balls. Notice how we only said “malted milk balls” once? That’s because this blog is mature!

Malted milk balls. (Photo captions don't count.)

Our personal favorite at the Las Vegas Chocolate Shop, naturally, is the solid-chocolate “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign. You can get this edible memory in dark chocolate, white chocolate or milk chocolate for $12.95, which includes a spiffy gift box (not edible, probably).

A Las Vegas Chocolate Shop exclusive, from what we're told. We love you, Vegas sign.

Time for a trivia break! Did you know chocolate syrup was used for blood in the famous shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s, “Psycho”? And did you also know in a recent survey, 70 percent of female respondents said they’d rather have chocolate than sex? Apparently, the Las Vegas Chocolate Shop is on to something.

Chocolate treats are just the beginning at the Las Vegas Chocolate Shop. The cozy store also offers a variety of cupcakes, apparel, books and chocolate-inspired collectibles.

We don't make up the news, we just report it.

There are tons of classic candies, too.

This blog loves it some candy buttons.

The shop also serves up a craving-quenching selection of coffee, espresso, cappuccino, tea and other beverages, along with special shots and flavors for the aforementioned beverages.

What, we were supposed to memorize all these?

The bottom line: You’re going to love the Las Vegas Chocolate Shop, guaranteed. How can we be so sure? Chocolate contains phenylethylamine, a natural substance scientists believe stimulates the same reaction in the body as falling in love.

You can find the Las Vegas Chocolate Shop on Twitter, and they have a Web site coming soon, apparently.

Oh, and one other thing. Malted milk balls. We ain’t that mature.
