Jason Andelman, Culinary Institute of America (CIA) grad and former restaurant pastry chef, opened Artisan Confections in 2006 with the desire to become Arlington, Virginia’s micro-chocolatier. His recipes creatively blend high-quality ingredients that subtly enhance the star of the show – Valrhona chocolate – considered the best in the industry. Instead of fillers and loads of sugar, you’ll find organic, locally sourced, top-shelf ingredients in our kitchen and contemporary designs made out of cocoa butter. The result is a collection of smooth and creamy confections that look as stunning as they taste.

what sets us apart?

We aren’t a big factory – We’re a small, independent business with two chocolatiers making everything by hand

We make our confections in small batches – some pieces even take two days to make!

We don’t use preservatives – using fresh ingredients, like real cream, means our superior taste comes with an expiration date

We put a priority on customer service – We enjoy talking with you about our products and helping you select the perfect gift or treat for yourself.
