    At Dilettante we are experts at creating Chocolate Covered Dried Fruit. Dilettante's Chocolatier - the Davenport family - brought this unique candy making method to the Pacific Northwest many years ago. The Davenports introduced the dragee method of confection making to the west coast. Dried fruits are liberally covered in two types of rich gourmet milk chocolate, white chocolate and dark chocolate blends. At Dilettante, we use premium Northwest dried cherries, blueberries, apricots, strawberries and coat the fruit twice using premium chocolate blends of gourmet chocolate.

    Using the dragee (pronounced draw-jay) method of candy coating, special revolving kettles coat the premium dried fruit in Dilettante's gourmet chocolate blends. Coating the chocolate confections perfectly, results in lovely chocolate fruit morsels. Fruit medley candies come in eye-appealing reds, orange, blue and creamy white chocolate candy coatings.

    Buy these gourmet chocolate gift in gorgeous gift boxes - perfect for thank you gifts, appreciation gifts or bring them to your best friend's get together for a snack. Don't forget to stash a box away for yourself! Why give your guests an ordinary snack? Share this extraordinary treat that everyone will be talking about later! Bring a box of chocolate covered fruit medley from Dilettante to your next gathering.

    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.

    My sister gave me a package of these in a Christmas basket. At first glance, I wasn't too excited about chocolate covered fruit. But once I tasted my first bite-sized candy, I was sold. The texture is great and there is just the right mix of dried fruit and chocolate and coating. They are a delight.
    Amazing treat!!

    I bought these at a local specialty store. I thought the colors would look nice for a dinner party desert table. Then I ate one. Oh my gosh!! They are amazing. The chocolate and fruit are a great combination. They are lovely to display. I am just not sure how long they will last, they are sooo good, how can you leave them there. Thank goodness I found the web site and can get all I want, and I want more!
    Mmm Chocolate
