In This Recipe
Preheat oven to 175 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange the berries in a single layer. Bake for about 3 hours, or until any juices have evaporated and the berries are shriveled
(but not burned), tossing the berries approximately every half hour.
Add the chocolate chips to a small saucepan and cook on very low heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Drop the dried berries into the still warm chocolate, gently tossing the berries with a spoon to ensure that all sides become coated. Remove the chocolate covered berries using a spider-skimmer and arrange on a drying rack that is set overtop a baking sheet (the chocolate will drip). Allow the chocolate to set (about 1/2 hour) before transferring to an airtight container.
