Homemade Chocolate Covered Blueberries Recipe FAQs
Can I use frozen blueberries for this recipe?
No. The frost on frozen blueberries would keep the chocolate from sticking to them. When frozen blueberries thaw, they usually tend to be soggy and mushy, so I wouldn't try using them. For best results, I suggest using fresh blueberries.
Do I wash the blueberries before covering them in chocolate?
Yes! Before eating or using it in a recipe, wash any fruit or vegetable. Washing blueberries thoroughly and patting them dry with a paper towel is very important. Make sure the blueberries aren't wet at all; if they are, the chocolate won't stick to them.
Can I add more chocolate to the blueberries to make a thicker chocolate coating?
Yes! To make a thicker layer of chocolate on the blueberries, follow the recipe as written. After about 30 minutes, the chocolate should be hard. Once the chocolate has hardened, repeat the chocolate dipping and cooling process. You can do this several times to achieve the desired chocolate thickness.
Will chocolate chips work in this recipe?
Of course, use the chocolate you have on hand. If the chocolate is a larger piece, cut it into small pieces to speed up the melting process and avoid burning it.
If I don't have a microwave, can I still make this recipe?
Yes, you can. If you don't have a microwave, you may use a double boiler on the stove instead. You can also use a make-shift double boiler with a normal saucepan and heat-safe bowl.
