The samples I received don't seem to be pearlized, they actually sparkle much more than sanding sugar or edible glitter. The sparkle has no texture like sanding sugar just sparkle, also if I look closely I can see the chocolate. I can't tell if they are rolled in the glitter or if it is sprayed on. It does come off a little when handling the bonbons. I have tried painting luster dust on chocolate (both just painting it on and mixing it with lemon juice and painting it on) and I do not get the same intensity of color. When I pulverize the sanding sugar it has a white look. I have not tried mixing the pulverized sugar with food color. It seem that would be sticky or wet and the bonbons are not sticky.

No, it's not sticky or wet.

I don't buy colored sanding sugar. I keep white/clear sanding sugar on hand and color it by putting it in a zip loc bag and adding a few dots of Americolor in the shade I need. I close the bag and rub the sugar & color around.

There's always the possibility that they make up a mixture of colored sanding sugar and luster dust that they can pass thru a sprayer (you can spray chocolate thru a Wagner paint sprayer for a "velvet" effect). That would yield very even coverage. You could then enhance the shine by spraying on a thin coating of panning wax, maybe tempered cocoa butter, or even gum arabic.

Given that the sanding sugar+ luster dust formula comes directly from the maker's website, I have no reason to doubt it, but I'm sure they're not apt to give away all of their secrets.................

I posted a picture of my try at these. I don't think my covering is thick enough. Maybe they use a spray to get an even coat. I'll keep trying.

That's such an interesting concept! But it doesn't sound like they taste very good (according to this lady anyway): http://thevegasweddingplanner.com/2009/07/07/bedazzle-bon-bons/

I'm wondering if you couldn't use the colored cocoa butters that Chef Rubber sells -- I've seen bonbons done up with these colors airbrushed on them and they were every bit as spectacular. http://www.shopchefrubber.com/home.php?cat=1137

I'll have to look and see if I can find one online someplace. A friend of mine sends me his old chocolate industry insider magazines and I see lots of cool pix there. That's where I saw those bonbons (I think they were done by Norman Love but don't quote me on that.)

Okay this is the closest I can find right off: http://www.normanloveconfections.com/chocolates/

It's the bottom picture. That's NOT the picture I was thinking of in that magazine, which were far more shiny, like the bedazzle ones but I know that's not who did those.

I was looking at my snow dust and disco dusts and they all say that their FDA approved . The only one that is suppose to be non-edible is the highlighters. I could be wrong or put the wrong cap on them but I believe its all safe for consumption. But what I would do is spray the chocolate with an edible confectionary laquer and then when the stuff is still tacky dust them with a combo of luster dust and disco dust.

Yep, wrong caps.

Disco Dust is NOT FDA approved, nor is it edible. It is non-toxic, but IT IS PLASTIC and the FDA only approves edibles.

Yes, the gold and silver luster dusts called Hi-lighter dusts are also not edible and are for decoration only.

And as for 'edible laquer'--well, it IS edible, but it tastes awful in any quantity.
