Two of my favorite sweet shops are just around the corner from each other in hip Hayes Valley. The charming Miette is a walk down memory lane with an incomparable collection of nostalgia candy as well as a trove of small-batch, boutique sweets.

Did I mention Miette also makes exquisite cakes and cupcakes? I'll show you some of these tempting treats in this latest video, which also includes a visit to Christopher Elbow, one of only two locations in the country for Elbow's uniquely-flavored and gorgeous-looking chocolates. 

As you can imagine, shooting this video was hard work.
