Blueberry Drops!

My family is SLOWLY turning 2010 into a year of healthy, MOSTLY organic, natural foods!  We are reaching for grass fed meats when we can and trying to do a total overhaul on our bodies and minds!  With that said DO NOT get ready to be seeing a COMPLETELY Organic family here!  We are trying, I repeat, trying to live a healthier life!  For me that means getting more fruits and veggies into my kids bodies each and every day and doing WHATEVER it takes to achieve that!  There I said it!  WHATEVER it takes! 
So, I have decided they need blueberries any way I can do it!  I told my daughter the other day that we are reaching for foods that have a face or come from the ground!  She about flipped! But then she calmed down when I said instead of candy we will be reaching for chocolate when we need a fix! 
You just dip some blueberries in chocolate, set them on wax paper and when they are completely dry (un-gooey) you put them in little baggies in the fridge for a quick snack for the kids or put them in lunchboxes or all natural, organic yogurt in the morning tastes, OH SO GOOD, with these little surprises! 
Now, can anyone point me to a healthier chocolate? Should I just melt some baking chocolate chips and do it that way? I was thinking of going with dark chocolate morsals.  HELP you healthy eaters out there! 
EXTRA: I bought two sets of these heart sticks from the dollar tree and tied a black bow around them to use as part of my decorations for a dinner party I had the other night (blog coming soon). I am still not a good picture taker, so this pic doesn't do it justice!
But afterwards I used it in my every day decorations in my home until Valentines is over! 
I must say my family is SO excited about the
homemade decorations I have put around the house this year! 
Well, my hubby is excited about the low amount of funds that have been needed!  HA!
This is me, Then!


  1. I don't know about healthy, but I just use the candy disks you can get at Michael's stores. They come in both light cocoa and dark cocoa. I even found some dark cocoa and mint ones the other day. You melt it in the microwave and the rest is up to you.
    I know I heard something about if you use chocolate chips or baking chocolate for dipping things in you have to add wax to it or it will turn white on the outside.
    There's also carob drops which don't exactly taste like chocolate but they look like chocolate. It tastes more nutty, I guess. It's usually in health food stores or sections of the store.

  2. I think the chips would work fine...just use a double boiler to melt them. Looks yummy! I'll have to try this!

  3. I think the dark chocolate is healthier but you may not like the taste and then that defeats the purpose! I can't wait to see your blog about MNO.

  4. Julie, I am buying organic longhorn meat and loving it. I get it from a rancher in Winnie. let me know if you want to try it. very reasonably priced and delicious!

  5. Tiff, do you use Gentz? A friend of mine uses them and we are about to use them too!


I love comments!
