I have been making the perfect summer dessert, and it’s so easy. You can’t beat balsamic marinated berries over brownies as a satisfying way to cap off a great meal. I love it because it combines fresh, juicy fruit with chocolate in a new and interesting way.
To make it, put a collection of the best berries you can find in a bowl. I’ve used strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. Then, sprinkle them with 1 tablespoon of sugar and 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar per pint of berries. Mix it all together and let the berries sit for at least an hour. They get better the longer they sit because some of the berry juice has a chance to seep out and mix in with the vinegar to create a delicious syrup at the bottom of your bowl.
These berries are best served over brownies because the chocolate flavor paired with the tangy balsamic and sweet fruit is absolutely heaven. Spooning the berries over ice cream would also be delicious!
