Your sweetie will love these Cherry Chocolate hand pies any time of the year! They are the perfect little treat for dessert or snacking!
Soon love will be in the air so today I’m sharing a super easy Valentine treat that only needs five ingredients. These mini Cherry Chocolate Hand Pies would make a perfect treat for your sweetheart (young or old)! Flaky crust, tart cherries, a dab of chocolate almond spread (nutella) with a drizzle of glaze make an impressive dessert that is sure to please. These are simple and simply amazing. Just what cupid ordered!
Earlier this week we were expecting a blizzard – luckily it was on a day that I didn’t have to work but I wasn’t quite prepared to make this dessert so I ran out to 2 stores and picked up pie crust and paint before the snow started to fly! Yes, I could have made my own crust but I really love the crust I can get in the frozen section of Trader Joe’s. It’s the closest I have found to homemade and it works like a charm every time (and no, I’m not getting compensated to say this). I already had on hand a jar of their cherry preserves and nutella so once I got back home, I was all set.
I surprised the DIY Guy (who works from home) by going down to his office and having him sample the treats. He is always a willing taste tester and he thought they were amazing. Besides having these as a dessert after a meal, they would be perfect for your younger sweethearts as well by placing them in their lunch box as a surprise. They are also good as a grab and go treat and if they are a hit like our place, they’ll disappear in no time.
You could always personalize your own hand pies by making them into circle shapes and cutting out a small heart of pie crust and placing on top. Experiment too with other fillings you might like – lemon curd comes to mine so next time I’ll try that!
