Chocolate Covered Blackberries are Fun to Make and Delicious to Eat

Blackberries are one of my husband's favorite fruits. Recently, I was covering or dipping fruit in chocolate and he suggested we make Chocolate Covered Blackberries. I went along with his suggestion simply because I understand that we each have a different favorite fruit and I wanted everyone to have their favorite available. For contrast, I used White Chocolate on the Blackberries. The White Chocolate Covered Blackberries were lovely on the table and tasty addition to our variety of fruits.

As it turned out, our daughter also loved the Chocolate Covered blackberries, as did several other guests. The Chocolate Covered Blackberries were a hit and they were completely gone in no time. It seems I did not make enough Chocolate Covered Blackberries for that gathering, but I will know the next time and I will prepare for the inevitable.

Easy Directions for Chocolate Dipped Blackberries

Step 1: Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper ~ The cookie sheet will make it easier to move your Chocolate Covered Blackberries.

Step 2: Melt Your Chocolate ~ If you use Saco Dolci Frutta, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave in their package container. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes on medium and stir the chocolate until it is completely melted. Other chocolates will need to be melted in a double boiler or a microwavable dish.

Step 3: Wash and Dry Your Blackberries

Step 4: Dip the Blackberries in the chocolate

Step 5: Set on wax paper to cool

Step 6: When you have dipped all of your Blackberries in chocolate, serve or eat.

Best if not refrigerated

      They can easily be made the day before a party and they will last for several days in a refrigerator. Much depends on how fresh the berries are when they are purchased.

      I like your lenses on how to make a quick, delicious and visually so inspiriong dessert -- but how did you make the trick to transform the black chocolate into white chocolate? :)

      The series of lenses on cherries, blackberries, bananas,etc is very smart and the pics are beautiful -- keep well!

      Our blackberry bushes are just now starting to bloom. If the squirrels leave us any, I'll try dipping them in chocolate. They do look yummy!

      Great idea! Christmas is barely over and I'm thinking of spring and fresh fruits.

      Great idea... white chocolate... imagine the dark chocolate would be delicious, but not as beautiful, perhaps.
