This gourmet candy shop in Ravenswood sells handcrafted caramels, almond pistachio nougat and other treats. Owner Amy Hansen, who honed her sweet-making skills after leaving an Internet marketing gig to study at Chicago's French Pastry School, is all about offering elegant, pre-packaged gifts—as well as affordable snacks kids can pick up their way home from school. Glass jars lining the wall of the narrow shop display some of the store's selections, including sweets imported from other countries, gummy bears and chocolate-covered espresso beans. A cupcake of the day is also available, and if you'd like a beverage to pair your caramels or homemade turtle with, there's a coffee shop right next door.
