The boys love their fruit and that makes this Mommy very happy! Being completely honest, I'm not a blueberry fan. I'll eat them in some dishes, but it's rare. I was challenged to create a recipe using frozen wild blueberries and knew there were some things I could make that the kids would love, but I wanted something I would love, too!
I planned on making a blueberry cheesecake bar, but Charlie wanted to add chocolate in and who can argue with adding chocolate into a dish? Not this Mom!
- 1 8oz package of cream cheese (softened)
- 1 egg
- ½ cup sugar
- ¾ cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup frozen wild blueberries
- 1 18oz roll of refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth.
- Using about ⅔ of cookie dough, press dough into bottom of greased pie pan to form crust.
- Spread chocolate chips over cookie dough, leaving about ¼ inch around the edges.
- Add frozen wild blueberries on top of chocolate chips.
- Spread cream cheese mixture over blueberries.
- Crumble and sprinkle remaining cookie dough over cream cheese mixture.
- Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.
- Cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until chilled.
- Store in refrigerator.
This was a very easy dessert to make and it may be one of my new favorites! It will be a hit at the cookouts this summer for sure! The chocolate and blueberry layers become a big gooey mess, but it's delicious. I never really thought about blueberries and chocolate together, but Charlie had a great idea because they work perfectly together!
Did you know Wild Blueberries are different from the regular blueberries you normally find in the produce section? They are! Wild Blueberries have a more intense flavor and are more genetically diverse because they are not planted, they occur naturally in barrens and fields in Maine and Eastern Canada. They may be small, but they pack so much into that little bite! These wild blueberries have some amazing potential health benefits including gut health, diabetes, cancer, and brain health. 99% of the Wild Blueberry crop is frozen fresh at harvest, which locks in their nutrition and taste. You can find them in most stores starting at just $3.59 for a 15 oz package. To find them near you, visit Wild Blueberries.
