Top 10 Huckleberry Dessert Ideas

Huckleberries are like gold in the berry world. They’re pretty rare and kinda pricey.

So you probably won’t see them everywhere. Instead, you’re more likely to score a few at your local farmers market.

They taste like a fusion between a blueberry and a blackberry. And that sounds pretty darn heavenly to me!

Let’s check out some yummy huckleberry recipes so you’re ready for the season.

1. Huckleberry Crumb Bars 

Who can resist a buttery crust with fruity filling and lovely crumb topping? It’s like a tasty crumb pie but so much easier to make. 

This one has a nutty almond flour and maple-infused crust, so it’s lightly sweet and super moist.

Meanwhile, the tart huckleberry filling is a jammy dream come true.

And the best part? These delicious bars are paleo-friendly and vegan!

2. Huckleberry Ice Cream

Nothing screams summer like fresh homemade ice cream. And when you add fruit to the mix, it’s even better!

Super creamy and sweet, with a lovely purple hue, you’ll taste tart huckleberries in every bite.

Scoop it into an ice cream cone, and say hello to your next favorite summer treat. 

Make it extra decadent with some dark chocolate chunks!

3. Huckleberry Hand Pies

These huckleberry hand pies are adorable and explode with summery flavors.

They incorporate a flaky all-butter crust that wraps around delicious huckleberry pie filling.

Buttery and flakey outside and sticky and gooey in the middle, they’re simply stunning!

And they’re so easy to make, you can even get the kids involved!

4. Huckleberry Waffles

Move over, blueberry waffles! These huckleberry waffles are the new go-to for breakfast!

With their delightfully sweet and tart flavors that ooze into every bite, they’re guaranteed to please. 

In addition to bright huckleberries, the waffle batter also incorporates maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla. 

Seriously, these waffles are so fluffy and flavorful, you may not even need extra maple syrup and butter!

5. Dutch Oven Huckleberry Jam Rolls 

Dutch oven huckleberry jam rolls are the ultimate Saturday morning breakfast treat. 

And since they’re made in a Dutch oven, you can even make them on your next camping trip. 

Between the pillowy soft bread and huckleberry jam, you may never go back to traditional cinnamon rolls

Slather a generous layer of powdered sugar-infused sour cream to take them over the top.

6. Huckleberry Cheesecake 

You’ve heard of blueberry and cherry cheesecake, but what about huckleberry cheesecake? 

This insanely delicious dessert is a must-try when you score some fresh huckleberries. 

It pairs a perfectly set creamy cheesecake and Graham Cracker crust with a beautiful purple layer of huckleberry jam.

The creaminess of the cheesecake is the ultimate pairing with sweet and tart huckleberries.

My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

7. Huckleberry Muffins

Huckleberry muffins are like blueberry muffins, only better.

The flavor of fresh fruit lives somewhere between a blueberry and a raspberry, which makes a mean muffin. 

They’re so tender and delicious and taste even better with a hot cup of coffee. So be sure to make double – you’ll need it!

8. Huckleberry Jam

If you managed to get your hands on these elusive purple berries, you can’t let any go to waste! 

So, after making all the huckleberry pies and treats you can, why not use any leftovers for jam?

Super quick and surprisingly straightforward, this is how you enjoy the great taste of huckleberry all year round! 

It goes great on just about anything from pancakes to waffles. And it makes a mean PB&J sandwich. 

9. Huckleberry Scones

Scones are my go-to for brunches or mid-morning book clubs because they’re so easy and delicately sweet.

And these huckleberry scones are a serious summer treat that goes fast. 

It pairs a delicate scone batter with fresh huckleberries that burst in your mouth with every bite. 

The scones are overly sweet, but the fruit really shines. That said, you can always serve them with whipped cream and huckleberry jam!

10. Huckleberry Milkshakes

Is there anything more beautiful than this huckleberry milkshake? Its shade of royal purple is fit for a Queen (or King now, I guess!). 

Plus, it’s easy to whip these bad boys up! Just blend creamy vanilla ice cream with fresh (and then frozen) huckleberries. 

It’s like a decedent huckleberry creamsicle in a glass. Yes, please!
