Super snacking defined - Sea Salt Cashews covered in Dilettante Milk Chocolate. Whole roasted cashews are sprinkled with sea salt then liberally covered in natural milk chocolate. At Dilettante, we use premium cashews and coat the roasted nuts in chocolate containing 38.47% cacao using the dragee (pronounced draw-jay) method of chocolate coating.
Dragee pans are special revolving kettles used to coat the best roasted cashew in Dilettante gourmet chocolate blends. The revolving pans coat the crunchy cashews perfectly and evenly resulting in a beautifully coated chocolate candy treat. Naturals from Dilettante available in 8 ounce gift boxes are perfect for gift bags, gift baskets or just for a special savory treat. Naturals Sea Salt Cashews in premium chocolate from Dilettante are a seriously munchable satisfying snack to share with family and friends.
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.

Your order is shipped with an icepack and special packaging to keep the product(s) at the perfect temperature during shipping.
This protective treatment lasts for only 48 hours under normal conditions.

Therefore, if temperatures in your area exceed 80°F, Expedited Shipping must be selected as your shipping option to ensure your product arrives without melting.

This candy was part of a gift package from my friend in Chicago Illinois and they are absolutely wonderful .
Disappointed - Just average chocolate w hint of cashew at an above average price
I am a long-standing fan of most of Dilettante's chocolates, have told many friends about them and often give Dilettante chocolates as gifts but these and the fruit medley dragees were very disappointing. These are GIANT balls of chocolate with a tiny half-cashew in the middle and no detectable presence of the sea salt crystals (Trader Joe's stores here carry chocolate covered almonds with big crystals of sea salt and turbinado sugar embedded in the outside of the chocolate coating which results in a delightful contrast of flavors and textures). Thus, I was hoping for something with more balance between nut and chocolate elements and an actually detectable sea salt element. Also, the chocolate these are made from really doesn't taste any better than the "Dove" chocolate I can get off a grocery store shelf. I guess I will stick to Dilettante's traditional truffles and meltaways in the future because they are quite extraordinary and blow the competition away (much better than the Godiva I can get here in LA).
I bought these chocolate covered cashews. The mix of the sea salt and the chocolate is to die for. Best chocolate covered cashews I ever tasted. I bought several more for friends as part of a gift basket they also complimented them.
