Fruity and chocolatey, these blueberry brownies are a perfect summer dessert served with ice cream.
I’ve been wanting to make brownies for a while and we just went to pick some blueberries at the farm and I decided I needed to add some into my next batch. I love chocolate and fruit. Most people like to stick with just strawberries or even raspberries, but I am a huge, huge fan of blueberries and chocolate together. These blueberry brownies are the perfect pairing of the two. I especially love having a slice with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
These blueberry brownies are so unbelievably fudgy and the bursts of blueberries add a wonderful fruitiness that makes me so happy its summer. When baking up these tasty morsels, remember that it is a bit more difficult to do a toothpick test since the blueberries keep the brownies a little more fudgy than normal!
