    Looks great, I will be making it soon. What do you mean when you said to temper the chocolate? Thanks

    1. This is an optional step. Basically, when you’re making candies and desserts, you need to heat and cool the chocolate to a certain point if you don’t want it melting on your fingers as you eat it. It also gives chocolate that “snap” when you break it. Since these are freezer treats, you don’t really have to temper the chocolate – but the option is there if you wanted to!

    1. I’ve never done it with frozen but I imagine it would be just as good. If you do, let me know how they turn out! I would thaw the berries in the fridge overnight or microwave them so they’re not frozen.
