Call me corny but Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. I love being able to celebrate the special people in my life and there’s something about adding hearts to everything that just makes it so much more fun! For this Valentine’s Day I want to make my sweetie pie something special to show how much I appreciate him.
I thought what better way than with some ooey gooey mini chocolate cherry pies?!
These pies can easily be made vegan as well by switching out the butter for coconut oil. I LOVE this recipe because even after a long day of work I can still whip these up in about 20 minutes!
My husband loves cherries and who doesn’t love chocolate so I figured combining them would make the most scrumptious Valentine’s day dessert perfect for two.
These little pies are so easy to whip up they would also be great for kids to make. My five year old nephew had a blast helping me crush the gram crackers, mix in the oil and pack it into the baby pie tins.
But the best part about these little pies is the gooey chocolate on top!
Once the pies have been filled, add as much chocolate shavings as your little heart desires. The more, the messier. This chocolate helps to encase the cherry filling when melted, as well as provide that extra yummy, over the top chocolate that you oh-so-crave!
Top with whipped cream and even more chocolate shavings to make this truly irresistible.
Grab your mini pie pans and get in the kitchen!
