Maralyn was born and raised in Tampa, Florida, in a very large Italian family rooted in the produce business. She prides herself on her Italian heritage and archives many of the recipes from her family and also from the Cuban and Spanish influences of her friends. Cooking and entertaining is Maralyn’s passion. She earned her BS Psychology from Emory University and her MBA from University of South Florida. Through the family business and as a foodservice broker, she became familiar with the top restaurants in Central Florida and produced the now famous Bloomin’ Onion for Outback Restaurants. She attended classes at LA Burdick Chocolates in New Hampshire, Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley and the Notter School of Pastry Arts in Orlando, studying the art of chocolates from such well-known Chefs as Ewalt Notter, Andrew Shotts and Jean-Pierre Wybauw. Also, Maralyn was, for over 20 years, a classical ballet dancer. Read less

Sweet Maralyn's chocolates were a perfect addition to my daughter's wedding! My daughter and her groom are alumni from the University of Florida as were many of our guests. Maralyn made favors for us that consisted of 2 chocolate gators in a clear box, tied with a bright pink ribbon, one of the wedding colors. We also ordered a tall chocolate Eiffel Tower for display (and for eating) since their honeymoon was in Paris, France. The presentation was outstanding and Maralyn was a true joy! The favors were very affordable and Maralyn worked to make them fit our budget. We appreciated her attention to every small detail and we received so many compliments from our guests. I highly recommend Sweet Maralyn's!

Maralyn created beautiful chocolate alligators for our wedding favors. Her chocolate is divine!! My husband and I are UF grads and the classy chocolate gators were the perfect touch. The deep pink bows on the favor box added a nice pop of color to our tables, also. I would definitely use Maralyn again for any upcoming parties or showers. Ordering was simple, the product was amazing and it was delivered to our ballroom and put on each place setting without me even knowing. Thanks for making our wedding so wonderful - we got so many compliments on our exquisite favors.

Marilyn was awesome. Made me feel extremely comfortable. She even gave my fussy one year old crackers to keep her calm during our appointment. She was prompt and got the job done. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

For our daughter's wedding, we purchased small boxes of candy from Sweet Maralyn's Chocolates. Not only was the final product a beautiful and delicious addition to our tables, but it was a pleasure to work with this wonderful woman. As we discussed the favors, she acted as if my daughter's wedding was the most important affair in the world. She goes out of her way to make sure that the final product is perfect, and it was. I HIGHLY recommend this company and would happily use it again.

Sweet Maralyn's chocolates are simply to die for. She was so sweet and helpful the presentation was amazing. She created a whole table of yummy treats to decorate around the wedding cake. A perfect additionn to our dessert menu.

My only regret was I wish I ordered more so I could have shared it with my honey after the wedding : )

Maralyn thank you so much it was fun working with you, need to find another excuse to be able to get more of your beautiful creations.

Maralyn went out of her way to deliver samples to us while we were in nearby Lake Mary, and provided excellent treats for our rehearsal dinner guests. Would absolutely recommend for adding a bit of chocolate delight.

We used Sweet Maralyn's for our October wedding in St. Petersburg, FL, and it was definitely the best vendor we used! Maralyn and her team were easy to work with and very responsive. She was so attentive during the entire process, down to the tiniest details. We had chocolate favors at each place setting that completely tied the room together. I wanted to use a damask ribbon that was a little more difficult to find. Maralyn went out of her way to find the perfect ribbon and I was so pleased by the way it looked... better than I could have even imagined! The truffles in each gift box were AMAZING, and even had a damask print on them to tie in with my theme. They were almost too pretty to eat... almost... but were so delicious!

We also had a chocolate table set up at the reception with different chocolate goodies. Everybody at the wedding, and those who were not but saw my pictures, were so amazed by the table. Most had never seen anything like it before. It was such a great focal point for the room, and all of the chocoates were gone before we knew it! One of the biggest hits from our table were the glitterati truffles filled with a Bailey's Irish Cream ganache. Those looked fabulous... again, ALMOST too great to eat! Maralyn also made a solid chocolate beer bottle of my husband's favorite beer that we cannot get in Florida. He was so surprised to see it! It was a great substitution to the traditional groom's cake because he got to take it home to eat it afterwards. Also on our custom chocolate table were handmade chocolate flowers to match my bouquet, and a picture fame with one of our engagement pictures in it, all made from chocolate and completely edible.

Sweet Maralyn's definitely exceeded our expections and helped make our wedding day special!

I was looking for the perfect sweet treat and I finally found it at Sweet Maralyn's Chocolate Shop. My husband and I are both optometrists and she created a custom made pair of glasses with chocolate truffles placed in the box around it. Maralyn was a pleasure to work with. After discussing exactly what we wanted, she made sure everything was perfect...and it was. The chocolates were delicious and Maralyn is wonderful...a true wedding professional.
