Key Ingredients in Chocolate Strawberry Hand Pies
- Fresh strawberries
- Chocolate chips
- Pie crust
You will also need some pantry staples; sugar, cornstarch, and an egg.
To make these easy strawberry chocolate hand pies you will simply cup out your dough, fill with strawberries and chocolate, close up and bake!
Can you refrigerate leftover hand pies?
Absolutely! Store them in an airtight container for up to 2 days. You may want to pop them in the oven for a few minutes to warm them up and give the crust that crispy texture again.
Can you freeze these dessert hand pies?
- Yes! If you have leftovers, I recommend wrapping them individually and then add them to a ziplock bag. They will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- If you would like to prep these hand pies ahead of time so that you can just grab them from the freezer and bake so you have an easy dessert ready-to-go, you can do that too! I recommend prepping the hand pies as directed, but stop when it says bake! Pop the hand pies in the freezer (on parchment paper on the baking sheet) for a few hours, then wrap them individually, put them in a ziplock and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Then, when you are ready to enjoy some chocolate strawberry amazingness, all you have to do is take one (or several) from the freezer, allow them to thaw and bake as directed.
Nutrition Tip: Young kids can get all the immune-boosting vitamin C they need in a day with just three medium strawberries!
