    UPDATE: Sweets and treats aren't just for Halloween, these goodies are perfect for the holiday season, too. This story was originally published on October 29.

    Costumes aside, the best thing about our Halloween is the candy. And, just because you're now distributing the goods instead of collecting them, that doesn't mean you can't indulge in some sugary bliss, too. You're a grown-up now, though, so make sure your munchies are equally mature. Don't dip your hand into that plastic pumpkin — we've got six amazing places for house-made treats guaranteed to next-level that bite-sized Snickers bar.

    The cherry on top? These creations are all whipped up right here in Chicago. Gooey, caramel pecan turtles, buttery toffee, chew-tastic taffy — we're talking real delights, people. And, unlike that bag of chocolates stashed in your office drawer, these candies are made fresh daily using top ingredients. What's missing? Only the preservatives, so it looks like you'll have to gobble 'em up just a little bit faster. Now, that's what we call the ultimate sugar rush.
