If you’ve ever admired fancy restaurant desserts adorned with touches of shiny gold, you’ll know why we’re excited to use this edible gold and silver in our own kitchens. Get creative: Try sprinkling some of the “petals” on hot chocolate or chocolate-covered strawberries. Use the powder to rim champagne or martini glasses or to dust chocolate truffles. And if you really have the Midas touch, experiment with the gold and silver leaves, which let you gild just about any food. Edible gold and silver powder, petals, and leaves, $21 to $100, at SurLaTable.com. For information and a list of other retailers, visit EasyLeafProducts.com.
