Nikki Darling Confections, owned and operated by Evan Coben, brings a touch of nostalgia to the candy industry. Her traditional, American handcrafted confections are available in a variety of flavors, and every handmade batch of candy is hand-wrapped with care in Chicago. It’s what you remember candy tasting like.
We very excited to have Evan and Nikki Darling Confections join us at the Chicago Artisan Market at Morgan Manufacturing (401 N. Morgan St., Chicago) on Sunday, December 2, 2018 (10am-4pm) along with 100+ of Chicago’s finest artisans in food, fashion, home goods + art.
• Caramels: Dulce De Leche, Vanilla Bean Sea Salt plus seasonal flavors including Apple Cider and Pumpkin Pie Spice
• Marshmallows: Chocolate, Vanilla Bean plus seasonal flavors including Peppermint, Cinnamon and Black Chocolate
• Chocolate Chews: Caramelized White Chocolate, Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate
• Fruit Chews: Lime, Lemon and “Malört-ish” (start sweet and work to a bitter wormwood-infused finish that will remind you of Chicago’s favorite alcoholic kick in the mouth)
This is candy for parties. This is candy for alone at the end of the day. For the little bowl by the front door. For your desk drawer. For the high-up shelf. For sharing. For stashing. For pairing with story re-hashing. For thank-you’s, I-love-you’s and even I-owe-you’s.
About the owner:
Nikki Darling Confections is a boutique candy company owned and operated by Evan Coben. Her lifelong passion for candy led her to culinary school and has since blossomed into a growing small business in Chicago. Her knowledge of food science and confectionery arts has allowed her to recreate her favorite classic American candy with a handmade touch. Each batch of specialty candy is handcrafted, from caramels to marshmallows to chewy candy, then once the batch of candy is firm, it is then cut, wrapped and packaged by hand.
