Delicious!! - and beautiful

I made this recipe Saturday morning for a ladies group in the afternoon. It took more time than I thought but it was well worth it. I used strawberries and large blueberries. I dipped each blueberry alone, then put them in stacks of three to set. They were more popular than the strawberries.
