Conversations: Silver Balls

Chef Chris: I’m going to make Christmas cookies with my son.

Me: Do you have Christmas-y cookie cutters?

Chef Chris: No, but I have red and green sprinkles.

Me: I like the silver balls. I think they might cause cancer or something but they are awesome.

(Two hours later)

Chef Chris: Hey. They don’t make those Silver Balls anymore.

Me: Blasphemy!

(Following a Google search)

Me: …Do too. I found them online. They’re called dragees.

Chef Chris: Any warnings on the label?

Me: No but they’re $7.25 for a 4 oz. bottle.

Chef Chris: Guess it’s a matter of how important they are to your holiday experience.
