St. Cloud, Minn (KNSI) - A new shop that recently opened up in downtown St. Cloud is confident it has everything you need to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Heavenly Treats, located in the Radio City Music Mall on St. Germain, specializes in cookies, but also has many other sweet treats to choose from, "We have four different kinds of cookies," said Owner Kathy Leighton Carton, "sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies, orange blossom cookies and toffee cookies, which are our most popular."

The shop also sells blueberry muffins, fruit pizza, fresh made caramels and other items. "We are kind of looking to do something different than you usually find in downtown, which is mostly muffins and scones and things," said Lydia Leighton. "So this is a different choice and it's all freshly made by hand."

The fact that Friday is National Doughnut Day isn't lost on the two women. Their shop doesn't sell doughnuts but they joked, "Come on in, and we will cut a hole in anything you want, and it'll be better than a boring doughnut, that's a promise."

Owner Kathy Leighton Carton says she learned the recipe for the toffee she sells from a nun while she was teaching at a catholic school in Rock Island Illinois in 1980, and that's why she decided on the name Heavenly Treats.
