Chocolate Covered Cherry Pie Pops

Cherry Pie on a stick?

How much better can life get!!

Covered in chocolate and sprinkles too?

Now that’s just insane!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention… I’m insane!

These were the perfect little treat for my kiddos. They loved helping out the whole way thru. Letting them cool was probably the hardest part for them!

I got this cute idea out of that awesome Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Baking magazine. Instead of cherry pie, they used a peach filling, and made them into cute star shapes.

I thought I’d “one up” them and dip it in chocolate.

I came thisclose to making them look like gingerbread men instead of circles… but Christmas is still too far away.

These are a no brainer to make. Get yourself a box of those Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts. There are two in the box. Unroll them on a lightly floured surface. And cut out the shapes.

Use a shaped that is at least 2 inches wide.

You can combine the scraps, roll them out and get more cut out more shapes.

Pick your filling. I chose cherry.

Place a level teaspoon full into the center of the circle. {I went with a heaping teaspoon full and ended up having filling ooze out when I tried to close it.} So stick with a tsp.

Brush all around the outer edge of the circle with milk.

Place your lollipop stick in the center.

{I got my sticks at the craft store.}

Lay another circle on top.

Using a fork, pinch the sides all the way around to seal in the pie filling.

Give it another brush of milk, and a sprinkle of sugar.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Use a spatula to transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once they are cooled, dunk the cherry pie pop into a warm bath of dipping chocolates.

Transfer to a sheet of wax paper, and have at it with some fun sprinkles!

The kiddos just loved helping with this fun treat.
What better reward for good behavior than a Chocolate Covered Cherry Pie Pop?
I don’t think Girl #1 could think of anything better than that!
The sweet chocolate that covered the flaky pie crust was a perfect match. Reminded me of those frosted chocolate pies you can buy at the gas station {you know what I’m talking about?}
But then to bite into some cherry… It’s like, well…
Adding that little cherry on top!
Perfect!

And you better believe we licked up all those sprinkles!

    WOW! All your posts are amazing. I bet your family eats better than anyone you know!! i love your blog =)

  7. Oh Shawn I'm so sad you're gone already–we had so much more blog-talking to do!

    These pies look delicious and I think you made the right choice doing them round. Any other shape would have meant more seams for the filling to seep out of. And dipping things in chocolate just for good measure is always right in my book!

  8. wow love these pies so adorable you could probably even just fill them with
    any flavor of jelly or jam. Can’t wait to see you make the gingerbread ones
    this winter.

  9. Keeping these plants in flowerbeds or flower boxes near your home will attract
    tachnid flies, who will then help control
    the population of earwigs. A study in the British Medical Journal found a significant connection between a person”.
