When blueberries went on sale for $.99 a pint, I had no choice but to stock up. Since it was raining blueberries at our house, I wanted to do something with them. I prefer easy, so I decided to dip them in chocolate for a nice summer treat.
It’s pretty self-explanatory but I just melted milk chocolate chips in a double broiler (well, in my homemade one using two pans). Putting the chips in the top pan and about 2 inches of water in the bottom pan will prevent your chocolate from sticking or scorching.
Then just dip the blueberries in with tongs. Or if you are like me and can’t find your tongs, then drop them in and fish them out with a fork. Whatever works.
Line dipped blueberries on wax paper (on a tray or plate) and then place in freezer for an hour or so.
Somewhere along the way I started to realize all of the things that would taste great if they were dipped in chocolate.
I cut up some strawberries and dipped them.
I sliced up a banana, spread some almond butter on top and then covered in chocolate.
Then once I started looking around the house for anything else I could dip, I knew it was time to stop.
Once everything was frozen, I brought them out for sampling.
Let me just say I’ve never seen anything get eaten so quickly, ever. They are truly addicting.
The only thing I might do differently next time is hide them from my kids!
