Local Chocolatier Offers Wide Range of Sweets

As a child, Christopher Weck (like many kids) enjoyed visiting his local candy store — and when his uncle opened a chocolate factory, his love for candy grew even more. Fast-forward several decades, and you’ll see that zeal in Weck’s creations at Sinful Sweets. Offering high-quality, hand-dipped candies, Weck is the sole operator of the charming shop. His treats — including carrot lolli cakes, bacon-chocolate bars and Nutella pretzels — wow guests at weddings, parties and showers. The secret ingredient in Weck’s goodies is undoubtedly passion.
