    Creating Dilettante Chocolate Covered Cherries is a craft we have mastered at Dilettante. Rediscovering recipes he had inherited from his family, Dana Davenport, Dilettante's founder and chocolatier made Chocolate Covered Dried Cherries using the pan coating candy making method (dragee) in Seattle in the 1970's. The Davenports had brought the dragee method of candy making to the Pacific Northwest many years ago. Today, at Dilettante, we still use the same candy recipes and dragee panning method to make Chocolate Covered Dried Cherries.We start with freshly dried whole cherries. The premium dried cherry centers are then liberally covered in two types of rich gourmet milk and white chocolate.The cherry fruit is coated twice using blends of milk chocolate containing 38.47% cacao and pure white chocolate using Dilettante's gourmet chocolate blends. Revolving dragee pans coat the chocolate cherry confections perfectly and evenly resulting in a luxurious cherry chocolate morsel. By covering dried cherries in red chocolate, we make these chocolate cherry candies both a feast for your eyes and your taste buds.

    Buy dried cherry chocolate covered candies in our two ounce mini-gift boxes in packs of twelve - perfect for gift bags, gift baskets, stocking stuffers or party favors. Don't forget to stash a box away for yourself! Any time you need an extraordinary break from the ordinary snack - try Chocolate Covered Cherries from Dilettante.

    Dragees are chocolate covered candy made in special revolving kettles. The term dragee is French in origins and describes the method in which we coat our dried fruits, nuts, and espresso beans. Dilettante chocolate covered dragee candies use fruits and nuts. Chocolate covered fruits and nuts are chocolate covered candy free from compound coating and only use the highest quality chocolate. These dragees are the chocolate connoisseur's ultimate snack.

    Here at Dilettante, third-generation Master Chocolatier Dana Taylor Davenport uses master formulas that are selected from the notebooks of Dana's grandfather, Earl Remington Davenport and his great-uncle, Julius Rudolph Franzen, Master Chocolatier and Pastry Chef to the crowned heads of Europe.
