Dark chocolate covered blueberries are dusted with finely chopped almonds in this easy recipe that looks and tastes decadent, but uses healthy ingredients for a guilt-free treat!

Dark Chocolate Covered Blueberries dusted with Almonds

Fresh and juicy blueberries are coated with dark chocolate and dusted with finely chopped almonds. Each bite is bursting with flavor and pretty healthy as far as treats go…if you don’t eat too many.

I’ve got you covered on portion control because this small batch recipe makes about 6-7 clusters. It’s perfect for date night! (Of course, it’s easy to double or triple it for a larger crowd!)

Dark chocolate is one of my favorite treats. Because the sugar content is lower than other types of chocolate, I’m able to enjoy it like a sane person. That is, I’m satisfied after a few small squares. Still…smothering blueberries with its silky goodness stretches out the enjoyment without any guilt.

The only downside to this treat is you have to wait about 30 minutes while the dark chocolate clusters set in the refrigerator. It’s hard. But, it’s totally worth it.

Dark Chocolate Covered Blueberries Tips and Tricks

Prepare these clusters before dinner, pop them in the fridge and you’ll have a sweet and heathy ending when you’re finished with dinner!

Ingredients for Dark Chocolate Covered Blueberries

The process is sooo easy. Melt the chocolate in the microwave until it is spoonable (about 30 seconds.)

Add the blueberries to the chocolate and gently stir until they are completely coated with chocolate.

Spoon out 4-5 blueberries in a cluster and drop the cluster on a piece of parchment or wax paper. This recipe makes about 6-7 clusters…but, please…don’t hate me if you end up with less! The yield depends entirely on how many blueberries are in a cluster, how big the blueberries are and how thick the blueberries are coated with chocolate.

Dust the tops with finely chopped almonds. I pulsed about 1/4 cup of sliced almonds in a mini food chopper to get the powdery topping. Keep the unused portion in the refrigerator for another batch or for another use (like sprinkling on yogurt or oatmeal!)

Place them in the refrigerator to set for about 30 minutes….and then enjoy a sweet ending to a delicious dinner!

  1. These sound so good. Chocolate covered fruit counts as a portion of fruit right?
    I think my daughter will love these too, they are a perfect little after school treat 🙂

    I have recently started a food sharing photo site and would love to have you contribute.
    Our criteria is that the food has to be delish and you hit that brief 10 fold 🙂

    Yum
