Blueberry Truffles/Blueberry Bark

July is Blueberry Month, and I'll be celebrating in all kinds of ways. I used to pick wild blueberries when I was a kid, and my Aunt Ann had lots of blueberry recipes. They rarely involved chocolate. Last year on Blueberry Muffin Day (July 11), I posted two Blueberry Chocolate Muffin recipes: One a wonderful rich muffin with an equal amount of chocolate chunks and blueberries-- and the other a chocolate muffin with blueberries. Both are great.

So I was thinking about something else, easy, of course, and here's something you can make in July at the Cabin or at the Beach. Perfect for vacation eating!

Easy Blueberry Truffles/Blueberry Bark

container of fresh firm blueberries
7 ounces of organic dark chocolate-72-85% cacao organic fair trade

Melt chocolate, stirring to blend.
Coat clean dry blueberries with cooled liquid chocolate.
Pile chocolate covered blueberries on waxed paper in little clumps.
Refrigerator for 15 minutes or a little more--until they firm up.

This will be either truffle like or bark like, depending on how you pile the blueberries. Flatter would be more bark like.

Our blueberries come out in June but I love dumping fresh ones into a batch of melted DARK chocolate and dropping them onto a marble slab to cool. Chocolate covered blueberries are fantastic!

That's even better, Suzanne!
