Is there a recipe for making dragees? I can't find them here and remember eating them when I was little and loved them. Just thought someone might know how to make them.

I think that Jacque Torre has some kind of KA adaptor for making them.

Don't rightly know, you will have to check out his site.

Most states have now banned the sale of them because the coating is a heavy metalicon_sad.gif
You can make similar by rolling tiny bits of fondant into a ball, then dropping them into a small jar of silver highliter dust. A big painicon_sad.gif

So far only California has banned them. I'll check it out and get back.

I wondered why you could not find them anywhere. I used to eat them all the time as a kid. Oh well....

Hey Marjiw...........I see you live in Texas. I live in SE Texas and our HEB grocery stores stock them in 3 different colors; Gold, Silver and mixed Pastels. icon_smile.gif

You can made tiny fondant pearls. Make a bunch leave them uncolored, when ready to color put in a ziplock back with some luster dust = shake = now you have fondant pearls. I make them as I watch tv and just store until needed.

Hey Lea,

I shop at HEB all the time and have not seen them. I wonder why we don't have them?

Hmmmm, interesting. HEB is notorious for putting items where they seemingly do not belong. You could ask the grocery manager where they stock them and if they do not have them in stock as him/her to order them for you. If our HEB's can stock them they all should be able to stock them. thumbs_up.gif

Our HEB has about a dozen different kinds and sizes. They're on the baking aisle.

I found them on the cake mix aisle down by the spices in one store and past the small decorative icing/cupcake papers, in another store. I'm in the Waco, Texas area.

In Texas, HEB supermarkets carry "India Tree" products and they have different colors of dragees. They are kind of pricey... Do you have a cake supply shop in your area. I know in Houston, I have found them at different cake supply shops.

I have bought gold ones off Ebay--there are several sellers, just compare prices. I was buying from C & C Candies but they haven't listed any in a while--glad I stocked up.
