i made my yearly visit to chocolate potpourri in glenview for christmas gifts. they have very good toffee and truffles. but my favorite is the chocolate peppers. pepper spiced chocolate, shaped like cayenne peppers. plus the people are really nice. it's a local shop doing mostly mail order. i won't claim they have the best toffee in town, but it's damn good.
it's stuck back in an industrial park off chestnut near lehigh. it's got a good feel to it, like you found something that no one knows about, and lots of free samples.
