Valentine's Day is just a couple days away and for many that means one thing and one thing only: candy. The annual lovefest has become a celebration of all things sweet - whether it's a piece of chocolate cake at the end of a romantic night out or anticipation of half-priced candy the following day. 

For its February issue, Milwaukee Magazine has created a list of local treats to enjoy this Valentine's Day - or any day, for that matter. Ann Christenson, the dining critic for the magazine, joins Lake Effect's Joy Powers to discuss how she made her selections.
