    We love a woman who can bring home the bacon — especially when it's mixed into a delicious, chocolaty candy bar. Who is this female version of Willy Wonka, you ask? Meet Katrina Markoff, the creative genius behind Vosges Haut-Chocolat. Even if you don't know her, chances are you've already tasted her amazing candy creations — all of which are made with love right here in Chicago but sell nationwide like gangbusters. While the chocolatier started her sweet empire out of her Chi-town apartment, she's since graduated to a jaw-dropping home in Barrington Hills. And much to our delight, we got the grand tour of her to-die-for digs — to share with you, of course.

    Along with showing us the most coveted pieces in her house (and closet!), Markoff also dishes on what it's like to be a second-time mom. And, of course, she answered our most burning question: Which of her own creations really rocks her world? Ahead, a gal who has it all (and by that we mean brains, beauty, chic decor, and chocolate galore). Best. Eye candy. Ever.
