This month we partnered with the Astrotwins to reveal the ways your zodiac sign informs your chocolate preferences. According to the Astrotwins, "Each zodiac sign has a distinct set of personality traits — and believe it or not, there's a chocolate recipe out there to match every horoscope sign."

You pride yourself on being at the top of your health and wellness game, so for you, Virgo, chocolate is about wholesome decadence, with a touch of sensuality. Since you're ruled by clever and analytical Mercury, you're happy to roll up your sleeves with involved recipes and don't shy away from trying your hand at fancy techniques. That's why chocolate-orange truffles are the sweet something that really speaks to your soul. These two-bite candies satisfy your health-conscious heart as much as they do your sweet tooth, plus you love taking the time to create the perfect chocolate shell.

Fruit-inspired truffles are just the beginning for you. Here are five treats that will answer your chocolate craving, without going overboard, and satisfy your need to get a little fancy.
