this is the sound of my jeans button popping off

Oy, so the holidays bring around some holiday bakin’, as you know. I’ve been chowing on the pink cookies and the kolachi, and now I’ve gots me some tasty brownies:

What’s in the pretty box?

Pretty brownies! I was thrilled to receive these, because they are the first offerings from Amai Bakery. The bakery was started by Kelli at foodblog Lovescool. Kelli left her job in the corporate world to pursue her love of baking and chocolate, and for that, I think she deserves a lot of applause and support. Way to follow your bliss, Kelli!
*As far as I know, it is not advisable to eat the drag

    Those are pretty. Are those “pearls” edible?

  2. Celia says:

    Oh yes! Tell us more about the pearls.

  3. Kathy says:

    Oh, my – those are beautiful! They almost look like jewels in the box, with the sparkling dragees on top. Jewels that you can eat :-).

    …………….You ate the beads? O.O

    The brownies look delish! I never knew that dragees are inedible. I swear I’ve had some edible ones once.

  7. Amy in AZ says:

    The most beautiful brownies ever! And as a kid I used to always eat the silver dragees… it’s a conspiracy!

  8. Jenny says:

    Hey, I always ate the dragees, and still would!

  9. Julie says:

    Ah yes, the inedible dragees live on. I learned that in 1998 after 22 years of heavy silver-dragee consumption. I guess if there’s a silver lining to be found in this situation, it’s probably in my colon.
    Dragees or no, those brownies look heavenly.

    Oh my goodness, they’re not edible? – I’ve eaten so many silver drag

  11. I ate the dragees and thought they were delicious! (I picked up my brownies from Kelli in her bakery today. We did a trade: her brownies for my macaroons.)

    “Callebaut 99% dark chocolate, Valrhona cocoa and real champagne”
    O.o !!! Big :O here. Gosh that sounds good.

  13. Amber says:

    What a coincidence–I just read an article about dragees! I was so surprised to find that a dragee is “a bio-accumulative metal that, like lead and mercury, stays in the body forever” (Dec 18ths LA Times Magazine)…who knew?!

  14. clare eats says:

    We call them “cachous” here and they are very edible, just lots of sugar! YUM

    There’s nothing worse than getting PMS the week before Christmas. I’m grumpy, drooling at everything I see, and giving in to all of the office candies and snacks. I’m trying to leave my desk as little as possible. But this picture is making me walk to the wall of food and find something chocolate.

  16. Kelli says:

    Hi Mariko! I’m just catching up on my blog reading and saw your post about the brownies. Thank you for ordering them! (And thank you everyone for the nice comments.) Dragees are a funny candy. They are safe to eat, although the box advises against eating them like a regular candy. In other words, I wouldn’t pop them like M&Ms, but they’re harmless on top of a brownie. Happy 2006.
