Island of Maui

Master Chocolatier Melanie Boudar’s love of chocolate led her on a quest to make her own chocolate, drawing on the artistry from her prior career as a jewelry designer. At SWEET PARADISE CHOCOLATIER, she creates edible jewels that are a feast for the senses. Melanie utilizes the abundance of fresh tropical fruits, nuts and spices found in Hawai‘i, resulting in exquisite chocolate perfection. She is committed to local sustainable agriculture, and has been growing her own cacao on a seven-acre farm in Ha‘iku, Manawai Estate Chocolate. The farm has an Adopt-a-Cacao Tree program and will open for tours in 2014. For all things chocolate, stop in to her newest location at the Wailea Gateway Center and try it for yourself—she ships worldwide! Open daily 10am to 7pm
