MELT CONFECTIONS is a small-batch confection business in Edmonton, AB – owned and operated by sisters, Alejandrina (Ale) and Josefina (Jo).
At Melt, we’re passionate about creating confections that are a treat for the senses: creative and elegant in their aesthetic, delicious in flavour, and rich in their story.
MELT has two product lines - NUDE Alfajores - a classic Argentine treat hand-crafted by us in Edmonton, AB, and our STUDIO Collection - a high-end line of hand-made chocolates, alfajores and cake pyramids.
Our business is all about creating unique, delicious treats to be shared with the ones you love, and we pride ourselves on always producing high-quality products that will not only be a pleasure to look at, but a joy to eat.
We have re-envisioned our favourite classic treats in new, modern ways, using only the best ingredients, so we never compromise on flavour.
We want our treats to start a conversation, and inspire you with every bite. Truly, edible art.
