Valentine's Day is two weeks from Friday and News10NBC is trying to make it easy for you with Rochester Rocs. 

Oliver's Candies in Batavia won Best Candy Shop. From their famous sponge candy to old fashioned molly pops to high heeled shoes. They do it all. Oliver's has been around since the 1930's. 

News10NBC got to see how they make their molly mops. News10NBC also asked for Valentine's Day ideas and found out these heart trays are a big seller. You can eat the whole thing including the tray. It's made of chocolate.

Jeremy Liles, Oliver's, said, "A lot of people like the traditional heart box, but what do you with the heart box after? I've always said that. This is perfect. Eat the tray and it's gone."

Congratulations to Oliver's Candies, winner of the Rochester Rocs Best Candy Shop. The finalists were Stever's, Andy's Candies, Oliver's Candies, Encore Chocolates and Hedonist Artisan Chocolates and Oliver's Candies won with 30% of the vote.

Nikki Rudd was live at Oliver's Candies this morning on News10NBC Today. Watch the video!
