The correct sentence should be:

The box of chocolates is very expensive.

Reason: While dealing with sentences that contain two nouns which have numbers (here box-1, chocolates-many) we consider the number of verb according to the number of the first noun. In this case it is box, which is singular. So there should be "is" instead of "are".
