A suikerboon (Dutch), or sugar bean, is a type of sweet traditionally given on the occasion of the birth or baptism of a child in Belgium and parts of the Netherlands. In French, they are called dragées. It has strong resemblance with Jordan almonds and to Italian Confetti.

Originally sugar-coated almonds, they are now often sugar-coated chocolates of the same shape and size instead.

In the Netherlands, a more common tradition is to give beschuit met muisjes after the birth of a child.
