History of elan

Maralyn was given the recipe for the delicious pecan toffee
by a friend. The friend moved to Florida and was unable to make
the toffee in that climate.
Maralyn prepared the cherished recipe of perfectly roasted
Georgian Pecans, smothered them in rich buttery toffee and gave
them to friends as Christmas Gifts. Before long her friends were
asking her to make extra batches that they could buy for gift giving
as well. elan, candies by maralyn was born.
That was over twenty-five years ago. Due to popular demand, more
space was needed. They moved out of Maralyn's kitchen to a storefront
in Grosse Pointe Woods. Each batch of elan is still hand made and
now hand dipped in either milk or dark chocolate.
