Before we get started, I just want to remind you to check out my giveaway, it ends soon!
|This is all you need to make something super cute and yummy!
So last week while I was checking out my fellow bloggers I can across this on the caffeinated globe. It was right then and there that I became determined to make them. They were cute, they were made with store bought pie crust and they were cute. Did I say that twice? Well since I had to get some things for another baking project I grabbed some pie crust and thought about making these in a few weeks. That did not happen.
That very same night, after mixing 4 batches of cookie dough, I pulled out the pie crust, grabbed some mini Reece peanut butter cups and got to work.
|All set up, so easy!
I was really happy with how they turned out, sort of. Firstly, they tasted great, little pockets of yum, but mine opened up. I tried pressing the edges together, but I think I used a cookie cutter just a little too small. I am happy to say that nothing spilled out, which is good since I didn't put parchment on my cookie tray.
Mini chocolate candy pies
From the Caffeinated Globe
1 store bought crust
some sort of chocolate candy
egg white and water mixed to wash
heat oven to 350
|I followed what the blog told me to do, because I follow directions. But it was just as easy to cut out circles all by themselves.
So to start you need a pie crust and some sort of chocolate. I was going to do Rolo's but was worried they would be too gooey. Also you can use home made pie crust if you want, I was just wanting to make them fast and the store bought crust was perfect.
So I rolled out the pie crust and put the candies all around the edge as the caffeinated globe had done. In retrospect I could have just cut the circles out. And I did that with the second crust I used.
|I just used the cutter I thought would work, should have gone bigger.
|So far they look okay, just make sure you pinch those edges together!
|A little packet of love, and chocolate.
|See how good they look before baking?
|And now they sort of look gross, but they taste great I promise!
I was really happy that they stayed together and they were so good, the buttery crust and just a little chocolate and peanut butter. I brought them to work and let my friends have at them, because the three I ate were more than enough.

I look forward to trying this again with different candies. I really enjoy finding these fun ideas on the web, so many great things to try and make.
