You’ll welcome, especially on hot summer days, a no-bake recipe that doesn’t require special equipment or complicated preparation. Simply infuse orange zest into your favourite melted chocolate. Press in fresh blueberries, dried cranberries, toasted almonds, and pumpkin seeds. Sprinkle fleur de sel and refrigerate until the chocolate is set.

    I love the soft juice blueberries mixed in with the other crunchier textures. Absolutely yummy !!

    Hmmm, I wonder if dried blueberries would work too! Not as pretty but it may keep for a little longer?

      Yes, dried blueberries would work, no problem. Think about soaking them in a Cassis liquor for a couple of hours prior. Let the blueberries drain on a dry tea towel for a bit before using. I think this step might give you the juicy quality of a fresh blueberry. Let me know how they come out.
