Chocolate Covered Blueberries
A Juicy Flavorful Explosion

Chocolate Covered Blueberries are just one more way to indulge in my favorite flavor without too much guilt.

Let's face it, blueberries are known to be extremely good for you. Dark chocolate even has health benefits. Combine the two and I've got me a match made in heaven. :)

Seriously, you really can pamper yourself with some exquisitely tasty blueberries dipped in chocolate and still feel good
about splurging.

You can buy some really wonderful chocolate coated blueberries as well as covered strawberries, cherries, and apricots, too. When I want to surprise a family member with a little gift for no special reason, this is a choice that is always appreciated.

Of course, you could always make your own blueberries dipped in chocolate. Keep reading further down the page for instructions on how to do just that! :)

Like I said, if you want to go the extra mile and dip your own blueberries in chocolate, you can do that, too. This simple little recipe will do the trick and will make folks think you are quite the gourmet.

Chocolate Covered Blueberry Recipe

  • 2 cups fresh firm blueberries
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips or pieces
  • 1 tablespoon of shortening

  1. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper and set aside.

  2. Rinse the blueberries well and dry them completely using paper towels.

  3. Combine chocolate and shortening in the top of a double boiler over hot water. Stir constantly until completely melted and smooth. Allow to cool slightly.

  4. Dip the blueberries in the chocolate one at a time or in clusters. And place on a tray to set.

Extra Tips: Blueberries are generally pretty tiny, so it is very time consuming to dip them one at a time. You can if you want to, but they are just as nice if you stir in several at a time and then drop in a small cluster to set.

If you can get your hands on some nice large berries, it would be worth the effort to dip them singly.

When all the berries are covered and placed on the tray, you can refrigerate the whole tray to help them set more quickly.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should keep up to a week. Of course, that is only if no one knows they are in the fridge!

Hint: If you really want your homemade chocolate covered blueberries to be heavenly, use fine gourmet chocolate from

You can use this same simple method of making chocolate coated blueberries to coat other berries, like raspberries or blackberries. My parents have plenty of wild berries growing in the middle of summer. Unfortunately, the grandkids often get to them before I get the chance! :)
