Hi! I'm Alicja, and I am the chocolatier, designer, social media manager, basically magician of Alicja Confections!

AC started from a need to continue working with chocolate after I had quit my job at a chocolate shop... to work in an office - I know, what was I thinking?! Things blew up very quickly, and I was fortunate enough to quit my office job and work on Alicja Confection full time! Being a chocolatier is in my blood - my father started working in a chocolate shop in Poland 30 years ago. I learned how to temper chocolate by hand and enjoy doing classic work with chocolate, but I always wanted to try out the funky flavour combos and designs I had always thought about. Thus, Alicja Confections was born!

My personal favourite bar: Strawberry Blonde!

Why We’re One of a Kind

Alicja Confections are classically made chocolates with a very funky twist.

Primary Materials

Chocolate: white, milk, dark, and single origin. Every piece of chocolate you'll eat from us has been hand tempered with love and spunk!

Care instructions
Keep your chocolate bars in a cool, dry place, like the pantry. No need to keep them in the fridge or freezer. Each chocolate bar is sealed in a plastic bag, and has a shelf life of two years. Keeping the chocolate in cold or hot temperatures can make the chocolate "boom" and look cloudy. It's still safe to eat, it just looks kind of weird!

Gift wrapping and packaging
If you'd like me to include a little message with your order, just leave me a note in your order with what you'd like it to say! Lots of people purchase chocolate bars and have them sent to others for birthday gifts, holiday gifts, or a "thinking about you, boo." kind of gift.

Please send me an email at if you'd like to feature us on your website or in print, or if you'd like a copy of our press kit. We'd love to hear from you!

Shipping in warm weather
Chocolate melts in warm weather, we all know that! We always suggest to use "Expedited Shipping" when ordering in the summer so your package comes to you fast with tracking, especially if you know your package will be sitting in a hot mailbox all day. Order in the summer at your own risk!
