Who Am I?
Hello my name is Marilyn McLeod, I was born and reared in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, Georgia. I married Ron McLeod and moved to sunny Bradenton, Florida, in 1977, and together we have three grown children. I've been very active and involved in my community for over thirty seven years through Service League, Junior League of Manatee County, Palma Sola Presbyterian Church, and as a bookkeeper/ receptionist, for the law firm of Kaklis, Venable, Witt.
I am now, owner and operator of Marilyn's Toffee And More, LLC, located at 8103 16th Avenue N W, Bradenton, Florida 34209. I've been making toffee for family and friends for over forty years. The original recipe for Christmas Toffee was given to me by a friend when I lived in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Through trial and error, I altered that recipe and made it my own. Milk Chocolate (my original toffee) has been the catalyst for the creation of the other four varieties that I offer today, with more decadent varieties on the horizon. My love for cooking, and zest for life have guided me to turn a hobby into a lifelong dream of sharing my confectionery creations with the world.
My toffee is gluten free, made with only the finest natural ingredients consisting of premium butter, cane sugar, almonds from California, topped with pecans from Georgia, macadamia nuts from Hawaii, silky smooth milk chocolate, mildly sweet dark chocolate, premium white chocolate, cooked to a buttery crunch that melts in your mouth and doesn't stick to your teeth, keep refrigerated, serve while cool.
I make five different varieties of toffee in my gourmet Northwest Bradenton cottage food kitchen, Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Almond Roca, Cappuccino and of course my latest, greatest and now award winning, "Best Confection", "Best of Show", 2014 Festival of Chocolate, Tampa, Florida, White Chocolate with Macadamia Nuts Toffee. Also, my toffee is featured in the spring edition 2014 of Edible Sarasota Magazine.
My Toffee makes a perfect shower favor, wedding favor, hostess, holiday, corporate or other special occasion gift. To order, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (941) 761-4959.
