Creating Dilettante Chocolate Covered Fruit is a craft we have mastered at Dilettante. Dilettante's Chocolatier family brought this candy making method to the Pacific Northwest many years ago introducing the dragee method of confections to the west coast. Premium dried fruit is liberally covered in two types of rich gourmet milk chocolate. At Dilettante, we use premium Northwest dried cherries, blueberries, apricots, strawberries and coat the fruit twice using premium chocolate blends of dark, milk and white chocolate.
Using the dragee (pronounced draw-jay) method of candy coating, dragee pans (special revolving kettles) are used to coat the premium dried fruit in Dilettante's gourmet chocolate blends. Revolving pans coat the chocolate confections perfectly like, resulting in a lovely decadent chocolate morsel. Fruit medley candies come in eye-appealing reds, orange, blue and creamy white candy coatings.

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.
