Local sweets and treats await for you to indulge in...

Taste delicious homemade chocolate at Long Grove ConfectioneryIf it only takes a spoon full of sugar to help the medicine go down, I think we’ve overdone it. Next weekend, let your sweet tooth run free with plenty of unique treats for you or for anyone you’re sweet on.

The Long Grove Confectionery Company is one of the sweethearts of the Chicagoland area, so let’s start there. It’s no wonder they’re known around the world for their gourmet dark chocolate, milk chocolate, barks, turtles and more…oh my. Reserve your spot for a group tour so you can see how all the magical goodness happens!

Popcorn from the Popcorn Factory in Lake ForestPopcorn Factory Outlet in Lake Forest will make you see popcorn in a whole new way. They take popcorn to the extreme by turning this snack into a decadent treat with their S’mores popcorn that you won’t soon forget. Trust me. And if you can’t decide, just ask Sandy. She always seems to know the perfect flavor for everyone!

Cacao Sweets & Treats in Grayslake gives you all the natural and organic sweets you can imagine, and they make it all from scratch. They even make their own peanut butter and vanilla extracts! Using pure ingredients, their homemade bars are the best around.

Take a step back in time to a corner candy store with an antique look! At Something Sweet, pick and choose the candies that tickle your fancy, but don’t miss out on their homemade fudge. Voted Best Candy Store in Chicago by the Daily Herald’s 2013 Reader’s Choice award, Something Sweet is the perfect combination of fresh ideas and classic inspiration.

Sweet Pete's in Lake Forest has been perfecting their dreamy treats for many years. Their Lake Forest store is their only location in Illinois. Sweet Pete's offers handmade chocolates and confections, ice cream, froze yogurt, cupcakes and more. They are also a great place for birthday parties, and offer chocolate making classes.

Sweeten your weekend getaway in Lake County!
