Well when he doesn’t eat the cherries I like to use them to make this Chocolate Covered Cherry pie. I am not “partial” to chocolate covered cherries but I can eat my weight in these pies (if my diabetic doctor would let me.) Since I can’t eat the pie I thought you could. Try this recipe and let me know how it turns out.
Chocolate Covered Cherry Pie
1 (8 or 9-inch) graham cracker pie crust or homemade graham cracker pie crust
1 cup (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (21-ounce) can cherry pie filling
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
8 stemmed maraschino cherries
STEP ONE: Assemble all ingredients and cooking utensils.
STEP TWO: Prepare a graham cracker pie crust. In a saucepan, over low heat, bring chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and salt to a boil, stirring continuously until blended.
STEP THREE: Mix in cherry pie filling and almond extract. Pour into the prepared graham cracker pie crust.
LAST STEP: Chill at least 2 hours. Garnish with 8 stemmed maraschino cherries.
