Key Lime Blackberry Bonbons
This sweet treat requires only 3 ingredients, a little patience and a WHOLE fun mess of sprinkles. I mean who doesn’t love chocolate covered sprinkles, but let’s mix it up, throw caution to the wind and give my beloved Texas wild blueberry a chance to shine.
These tiny gems are plump, juicy and grow rampant here in South Texas. My mami had a large blackberry bush in her backyard when we were young and we picked to our hearts content all summer. Frozen with a sprinkle of sugar is how we enjoyed them, but today I wanted to dress these little guys up with Key Lime candy melts from Wilton and a few sprinkles.
Make sure your blackberries are completely dry before you begin dipping them in the chocolate and please, please don’t skimp on the sprinkles –FUN!
- 8 ounces Key Lime Wilton candy melts
- 24 blackberries
- Wilton sprinkles
In a microwave safe container microwave candy melts fro 1 minute. Stir thoroughly and continue to microwave in 30 second intervals until smooth and completely melted.
Coat berries in chocolate and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with sprinkles and freeze 5 minutes.
