Chocolate Covered Blueberries

Chocolate-Covered Blueberries

What You Need:
• 2 cups blueberries
• 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I will do milk chocolate when I make these again)
• 1 Tbsp. butter or shortening

First, wash your blueberries and lay them out on paper towels to dry completely (the chocolate won't stick to them properly if they are wet) and let them sit for a while to warm to room temperature, if needed. Cold berries will adversely affect the chocolate, so making sure they are room temperature is very important! Then put them into a large bowl.

Next, using a double-boiler or your microwave (we have done it both ways successfully), melt your chocolate chips and butter together until smooth. Then pour it over your blueberries. Gently mix them until they are all pretty well coated. Drop small spoonfuls of the chocolaty berries onto a cookie sheet covered in wax paper.
Put your cookie sheets into the fridge and let them get good and cold. Then it's time to eat and enjoy! They may not be pretty but they are delish!
