Sending Chocolate by Post to the US?

Recent chat on chocolate and the like reminded me I might want to send some US friends some British chocolate as gifts this year, but I remember reading something about needing to jump through extra hoops when sending food-stuffs, beyond just filling in the usual customs form/label that sticks to the outside of the package. Its so long since I sent anything edible across, I'm just not sure any more.

Can anyone tell me more about this - would hate to either cause trouble for the recipient, or have my parcel of goodies go astray thanks to its (tasty) contents. Logic suggests a couple of bars of chocolate travelling overseas to a US friend shouldn't be an issue for anybody, but logic and customs don't always intersect!
