BROOKLYN - One of Brooklyn's most famous chocolate makers is expanding, and just in time for Valentine's Day.

Jacques Torres, also known as "Mr. Chocolate," is increasing his company's local operations with a new location at the Brooklyn Army Terminal in Sunset Park.

Torres has been selling his chocolates throughout New York City for the last 15 years.

The famous chocolate creator gave News 12 a tour of his 40,000-square-foot factory, where workers are busy preparing for not only Valentine's Day, but Easter, too.

The New York City Economic Development Corporation, which wants to see Sunset Park become a major manufacturing hub, joined to celebrate Torres' expansion.

Torres also hopes to open up his factory for public tours so that fans can get a look at how his treats come together.
