Seattle's Sweet Week returns for a second year on Monday, September 14 with a host of bakeries, ice creameries, and sweet shops around town offering $5 treats made specifically for the occasion.
These $5 tastes are available from September 14 to 20. The Sweet Week website has more information, but here's the full list of chocolate- and caramel-laden offerings grouped by neighborhood.

Organic ice cream at its finest: chewy chocolate hazelnut cookie sandwich with butter toffee ice cream rolled in hazelnut toffee.
