INGREDIENTS

1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup chocolate chips (dark, milk or white)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. 1
    Rinse blueberries, spread on paper towels and pat dry. Line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment.
  2. 2
    In a small bowl or top of a double boiler, over barely simmering water, place chocolate; stir until melted. Remove bowl from hot water; gently fold in blueberries. Make clusters by spooning 4 or 5 warm chocolate-coated blueberries onto wax paper, placing them 1" apart. Or, spoon mixture into silicone candy molds. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to three days.

notes

Silicone candy molds can be found at craft stores.
