Chocolate Covered Triple Berry Crisp


Sometimes I just get these ideas in my head for a recipe...and then I sort of fantasize about them until I find time to make them in my kitchen. That was the case with this dessert. I bought all these bags of frozen fruit the last time I saw them on sale and I was getting a little bored with smoothies. So I made some blueberry muffins - and they were good. I made some raw strawberry ice cream - and it was good. I really wanted something special though. The last time I made a new dessert was around Easter time, so I knew I was about due to make another.

Luckily I got the idea of this chocolate covered berry crisp. This dish kind of reminded me of these candies my Grandma would always bring home for me anytime she would go out to Seattle to visit her Mom. I was probably around 8 or 9 when she brought me home my first few bags of chocolate covered blueberries and cherries. I was hooked after that. I know I'm going to be making this dessert for years to come. It was absolutely delicious! I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did!

Filling Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen cherries
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Mix all the ingredients together and place in a greased baking dish.

Crumble Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Blend in the shortening with a pastry cutter or hand mixer. Add in the coconut oil and blend in. Pour the crumble in an even layer on top of the berry/chocolate mixture. 

Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 25-30 minutes until the berries have cooked through and crumble is golden brown.
