Hot days call for quick, effortless treats. Go beyond the ice cream scoop with easy yet elegant desserts that take just a few minutes to make. We cook the blueberry mixture down until almost jammy, then fold in fresh berries for a bit of juicy pop in every bite. You can make the sauce ahead, and then microwave in a microwave-safe bowl at HIGH for 90 seconds or until warm, stirring every 30 seconds.
